He was the youngest of six, born to the late Garvin and Maude Brown, May 30, 1927, in Jasper. There he met his wife of 65 years, Lola Jean Nation, and they raised their family. In 1989, after retiring from Alabama Power, Lindy and Jean moved to Missouri City, Texas, where they have lived, within walking distance, from their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Lindy was a dignified patriarch who leaves behind a set of values that he modeled until his death; sacrifice for family, take pride in everything you do and always have time for a laugh.
His legacy is carried on by his brother (Bradford), sister (Oletta “Boots”), children (Steve, Renee, Charlie), daughters-in-law (Trish, Kristine), grandchildren (Ben, Lindy), great-grandchildren (Samantha, Colt, Aurora, Easton), and numerous other family and friends too numerous to list, but their lives equally touched and loved by all.
He was preceded in death by his sisters, Margaret, Juanita and Eugene.
Visitation will be held at Collins-Burke Funeral Home Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, from 6 until 8 p.m.
Funeral services will be held at Mt. Philadelphia Baptist Church in Cordova on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, at 1 p.m. The body will lie in repose from noon until 1 p.m.
