“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; (King James Version online Ecclesiastes 3:1-4).

Further, our brother loved to listen to music, dance, and snap his fingers to the beat. He loved children and enjoyed spending time with his friends. Donald was a comical, friendly, and social person. He spoke to everyone and engaged in many social events. He was the light of the party, as he would dress like a cowboy, wearing his tight blue jeans, cowboy hat, and cowboy boots. He would twirl around in a circle on the dance floor using his imaginary lasso. He was a great entertainer. Don had amazing strength and was great at body building. He believed in staying fit and lifting weights on a regular basis. One of Donald’s most amazing strengths lives in the fact that he was a fighter. He fought a good fight until the very end.

Also, he is preceded in death by his parents Edward L. Lindsey Sr., and Willie B. Lindsey, his siblings Mary Ann Lindsey, Robert Lee Lindsey, and his niece Denice Lindsey.
