To the whole family, you are in our thoughts during this difficult time. Donald was a constant positive presence in our lives and will be greatly missed. Through the years, we could count on Donald to lend a hand, give his signature wave, keep it cool and even rescue his friends stranded in flood waters (check out this picture). If his life was a western, he would definitely be the man wearing the white hat—he was one of the best! Sending our love. Thank you for sharing all of the wonderful photos of Donald.

We are so sorry for your loss.
Aunt Louise always mentioned him when we used to visit her.
We always enjoyed talking to Donald through the years whenever we would see him. He was always smiling and friendly.

Our sympathy to the family,
Wendelene and Jim

Doug; I am so sorry that you and your family have had to bear the loss of your father at this difficult time. I'm thankful that I got to know your parents through the "C" company group. My husband and I were never involved in a nicer group of people. We greatly enjoyed the reunions, picnics, parties, etc. After the loss of my husband, the luncheons at the Canton became a special time when I could still feel a part of the group. You and Don were such a part of it. He will truly be missed. God Bless and comfort you and your family. Your friend, Alice Whitfied

DONALD LINDENBERG WAS ONE OF THE FINEST MEN I EVER KNEW. HARD WORKING, UNSELFISH, SINCERE, CARING. WE WERE NEVER REAL CLOSE FRIENDS OTHER THAN SOCIALLY THROUGH ST PAUL'S CHURCH SCHOOL, FAMILY FELLOWSHIP, AND COMMITTEES WE WORKED ON TOGETHER. I KNEW HIM AS A FARMER FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. ALWAYS STRAIGHT FORWARD IN DEALING AND TRUSTWORTHY. A REALLY GOOD CLABBER PLAYER.

I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.
