David Lindsey

NORMAN — David Lindsey, 74, a longtime resident of Norman, went to be with his Lord on Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. David was born Nov. 9, 1938, in Oklahoma City to Barney and Artie (Scott) Lindsey.

He lived on the family farm until 1945 when he moved to Highlandville, Mo. After graduation, he lived a short time in Kansas before returning to Missouri, where he, his nephew and lifetime friend, Kenny Magerus, of Midwest City, together joined the Army. He served from 1963 to 1966, including a tour in Korea. Returning to Oklahoma City in 1967, he went to work at the FAA retiring as motor maintenance supervisor after 30 years.

He loved helping others, doing volunteer work — including cooking for Food for Friends — and was active in his church, where he served on the parish council and was always willing to serve as needed. He especially enjoyed participating in the yearly chili cook-off.

Survivors include his wife, Gail Lindsey; son, David and wife Angela DeWitt of Oklahoma City; daughters Tawnya and husband Keith Hopcus of Dallas and Mikell and husband Andrew Thompson of Beaver, Pa.; sisters Betty Ware of Carl Junction, Mo., and Alice Bradshaw of Huntington, W.Va.; brother, Don Bilyeu of Ozark, Mo.; grandchildren Chilton, Seth, Kandon, Allison Mai, Kolton, Katelyn, Andy Ruthann, John, David and Joseph; as well as a host of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Barney and Artie Lindsey; brother, Jim Lindsey; and sisters Barbara Magerus and Rebecca Ferencich.

He loved God, his church, family, friends, country and especially being a grandpa. He spent endless hours playing and entertaining his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by countless loved ones and many friends.

A memorial service will be 11 a.m. Monday at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 100 Stinson St. in Norman.
