Eugene “Gene” D. Lindsey, 55

Eugene “Gene” D. Lindsey, 55, of Coatesville, peacefully went to Our Lord Friday, January 6, 2012, at his home, surrounded by all his loved ones. He was a true warrior against his long 12 year battle with cancer, with a strong will and positive attitude. He amazed many by beating the odds against him many times.

Born April 2, 1956, in Pasadena, Texas, to James and Lena (Wactor) Lindsey. On August 29, 1976, he married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Connie Siddons-Linsdey, who survives.

Gene started working while still in high school, and then several years after, for Hendricks County Hospital. In 1987 he started working for Stonhard & Cornerstone Flooring, working up to supervisor, traveling and working in many states until 2000. He worked a brief time at Mill Creek East School. He loved his jobs. He loved people. With every job he not only had co-workers, he gained a family.

He cherished his children and grandchildren, and he will be sadly missed by them.

Along with his wife, he is survived by his son, James “Nathan”, and wife, Cody Lindsey; his daughter, RaiAnn and husband, Micheal Stelzner; grandchildren, Brayden Kennedy, Alexis and Rylan Lindsey, Allison and Kari Stelzner, all of Coatesville; his mother, Lena Pearl Linsdey; brothers, Troy (Beverly), Murl (Annie), Ronnie (Cheri), Ricky (Sandra) Lindsey; and his sister, Judy McClelland, all of Texas; several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles; father and mother-in-law, Frank and Hazel Siddons; brother-in-law, Clyde (Shirley) Siddons; very special friends Keith and Tina Harp; and many, many more.

Preceded in death by his father, James Lindsey; cousin, Gene Evers; nephew, Jimmy; and sister-in-law, Sandi Washburn.

Services were held at Bousley-Hays Funeral Home, Coatesville, Tuesday, January 10, 11:00 a.m., Rev. Dan French officiated.
