Fred B. Lindsey
Fred Borron Lindsey passed away peacefully with family at his side on March 30, 2016. Born in Alabama on July 6, 1924, Fred was a very independent man with a will of steel. He was never short of ideas to prolong his independence and demonstrated this characteristic until the very end. Fred was a World War II veteran and a purple heart recipient and was thrilled to take the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial. Fred was preceded in death by his wife, Marie (Doucette) Lindsey, grandson Keith Cox, 3 brothers Alfred, Ellis, and Hugh, and a sister June (Lindsey) Reeves. He is survived by his 5 children Linda (Lindsey) Self of Gurnee, IL, Fred Lindsey of Clearwater, FL, Pam (Ken) Cox of Bascobel, WI, Dave (Nancy) Lindsey of Libertyville, IL and Bob Lindsey of Seattle, WA, his 7 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren, all of whom loved him dearly … Everybody loved Fred. The family would like to thank Advocate Condell Hospice and Libertyville Manor for their kindness and compassion while caring for our father. Fred’s remains will be cremated at Strang Funeral Chapel & Crematorium 410 E. Belvidere Rd. Grayslake, IL with a memorial service to be held on Fred’s 92nd birthday.
