Michael Carl Lindgren

June 17, 1955July 2, 2020

Michael Carl Lindgren, age 65, passed away on July 2, 2020 after a brave battle with brain cancer. Michael was born on June 17, 1955 in Monmouth, IL. He lived his youth as a “Navy Brat”, living in Washington D.C., Hawaii, Japan and finally settled in Houston, TX. When Mike and Elaine met, they knew they were meant to be together and were married on December 31, 1996. Their love for each other grew deeper with each day and recently renewed their wedding vows. Mike was a skilled machinist and manufacturing engineer and in 2007 he became a partner in his own Machine Shop, Omnimetics.

Mike is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Elaine, his parents Harold and Barbara Lindgren, son, Steven Lindgren, wife, Loretta, son, Jimmy Lindgren, stepdaughter, Michelle Potter, husband Mark, stepson, Bobby Dykstra, wife, Courtney and stepson, Kenny Dykstra, wife, Simida as well as 14 grandchildren, Mother-in laws, Ann Candela and Florine Carr, and several cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, brother in laws and sister in laws.

His father-in-law, August Candela, Aunt and Uncle, Betty & Warren Cook, Uncle Charles Lindgren, Aunts Marie Lindgren & Arlene Larsen, Grandparents, Mary O & Jim Shelton, and Carl & Adelina Lindgren, preceded him in death

Mike loved to be out on the bay fishing but loved even more teaching and watching others fish. He was always the one to tie on a new hook or take a fish off of a line. He also loved to play the guitar, spend the day on the golf course or spend a weekend with the guys at the camp. He was a good son to his parents, always making sure to call his Mother every day. Mike was always fun to be around and was loved by many.

Mike had a strong faith in God. He also had a huge respect for our Military, as his father was career Navy and his son Steven served as a Marine and grandson Jonathon is currently serving in the Marines.

Due to COVID, only a small service with immediate family will be held at the cemetery.

Those who so desire may make a memorial donation in memory of Mike Lindgren to St. John Lutheran Church, 6605 Old Independence Rd., Brenham, TX 77833

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. Peter 5:10

May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you
May the Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon you,
And give you His peace,
Both now and forever amen...

Son, you have been my everything and best friend for over 65 years. Thanks for taking care of your Mom while I had to be away at times and thanks for being my Guardian on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. a few short months ago. Will never forget all the technical things you taught me. May you have Fair Winds and Following Seas.

Mike, words cannot express the depth of my love for you. We would find happiness in so many simple things as in searching for somewhere to eat crawfish on our honeymoon in January, just the two of us on the bay, fishing and going on road trips with no agenda. Our life was perfect. I will miss you and love for the rest of my life.

Mike was a great friend that I had the pleasure of knowing for many years. We played a lot of golf and poker together and he was always a joy to be around and the life of the party!
I will miss you Mike.

Memories - hard to know where to start. We have 100s of memories after working together for so many years and being such good friends. I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to talk to you a few times over the last few months and weeks to catch up.
I guess one of my favorite memories was when we were all hanging out after the EGC Sweeney Golf tournament. Listening to the band and just having so much fun.
You will forever be in my memory and in my heart.
Loved you a lot Ling Ling.
