OBITUARY

Forest Lindsey

July 11, 1926January 25, 2020

Forest Norman Lindsey went to his heavenly home on January 25, 2020 at the age of 93. Forest is remembered with love by his five children, three sisters, fourteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Forest was born July 1926 in Albion, Illinois to Forrest and Annetta Lindsey. Forest is survived by his children: Robert Lindsey (Kay), Rhonda Morrow (Randy), Regina Kuderer (John), Robin Bueche (Fred), Randel Lindsey (Katy); grandchildren: Lindsey (Cody), Ryan (Amber), Ashlee (Zane), Jackie, Emmalie, Colt, Wyatt, Aaron, Ethan, Abby, Gabby, Alex, Mikah and Forest; great grandchildren: Brody, Peyton, Cade, Gracyn, Cohen and Tatum; siblings: Sally Berry (Dick), Brenda McDougal and Joan Johnson (Rick). He was preceded in death by his brother: Dale Lindsey, his sister: Rowena Bosela and his parents.

In 1944, at the age of 18, Forest joined the Army and fought in World War II. He was awarded a Bronze Star for his exemplary action in ground combat with the armed enemy on Okinawa. In 1947, he continued his military career in the US Air Force until he retired in 1965. After the military, Forest had multiple successful careers with Sigmor Shamrock, Frozen Food Express and North East Independent School District. In retirement, he enjoyed raising cattle on several different small ranches he owned. He sold his last property, cattle, and tractor at the age of 91.

Forest loved his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and enjoyed attending the many family gatherings each year. He will be remembered for always being punctual, very disciplined and the first in line for food. While Forest was frugal with his personal finances, he was very generous with his children and grandchildren. Forest will also be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his cows as well as the rancher with most groomed land – no matter the size.

His family is so grateful that Forest was strong mentally and physically until the very end of his life. He had a great memory especially when it came to numbers. He was independent and still drove his truck at age 93. His eyesight was amazing; he never needed corrective lenses. Forest was an intelligent, but humble man. This very special and extraordinary person will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

A private service for Forest will be held at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. The funeral services are being coordinated by Sunset North Funeral Home in San Antonio, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, if you would like, the family asks that you make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project (https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org).
