Well. Daddy it's been 11 yrs and I miss you everyday! I've cried enough to fill the Mississippi River! My life changed the day you went to heaven nothing has been right. I know we'll meet again in heaven but until then will you give Grandma Lindsay a hug and kiss. You are the greatest man, I've and Grandma was the greatest woman, Ive ever known! Y'all were loved by so many! By the way, tell Momma, I kept my promise l made to her and lost the weight. The days I miss the most is Saturday's, everybody being in our backyard for your BBQ,beer,music and stories! The Houston Chronicle put an article, after Momma passed away and even more when you went to heaven. Now, your baby is 60yrs old with a broken heart! I hope all of family and friends have the best Birthday party in heaven! I wanted to let you know that you were made the mayor of the Woodland Heights and a special city council meeting in your honor. I even got a letter from the governor of Texas and Greg Abbott honoring what a great man you are. You was always there for me and loved me unconditionally. God gave me the best Daddy and Grandma anyone could have!

Jack W Lindsay, was the greatest man, I ever knew! He was not only my Daddy but my best friend and hero! He was loved by all,too many friends to mention and he loved his family with all his heart! My life will never be the same without him and I know he made a difference in many lives! God only takes the best,so I know my Daddy is in heaven with his friends and family looking down on me! He told everyone that I was his baby, no matter how old I was! He loved my kids Melissa and Chad Pennington as they were his own since their Dad wasn't there for them, and his great grandson Chris Fuentes. He never got to meet his other great granddaughter Lindsay Pennington but I know he would love her,too! He was made the Official Mayor of The Woodland Heights. Every Saturday was an important day for him because that was day to have a backyard BBQ,music and friends, some I didn't know but he was loved by all. When his Mother, Edna Lindsay passed away that was the first time I ever saw him cry and when his best friend Willie was the next. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I know I will see him again in heaven! I will never forget you and love you always!

Jack W Lindsay, The Greatest Man,My Hero and my Daddy

<p>Jack William Lindsay was born on January 29,1919 to John William Lindsay and Edna Autry Lindsay. He was the oldest of 4 children He had 2 brothers, Pat Edwin Lindsay and Bert Autry Lindsay and a little sister Elizabeth Ann Lindsay which died as little girl from an illness. He joined the United States Army serving directly under General George S Patton's Third Army and the invasion of Normandy! He married Ruth Evelyn Howell on August 3, 1942, they were married 60 years until her death August 12, 2002. They had a daughter Judy Christine Lindsay born May 28, 1956. He worked for AO Smith until they closed and then for Ford Motor Company in Houston,TX for 50 yrs. He was a lifetime member of the UAW where he was a Chairman of the Houston, TX division! He always said he was a Momma's boy because he was the oldest but he was alot like his Daddy, he looked so much like him and had many of his ways! He thought the world of his niece, Patricia Lindsay Phillips which helped him so much,his nephew Harold N Howell, Jr (Buster) who lived next door,his niece Zandra Ruth Anderson, he called her "Tex", his cousins Jim Anderson and George Carter, all being great men! In 1960, he moved from the First Ward in Houston to the house he loved at 701 Wendel in the Woodland Heights where he lived the rest of his life. Wendel Street was home to him and most of his family. His aunt Laura Anderson,nephew Buster Howell, brother and sister in law Neel and Helen Howell and brother and sister in law Paul and Dete Howell. Jack played baseball for Budweiser with his brother, Pat both were great ball players. Once a year, he looked forward to a reunion of his friends, The First Ward, where they all grew up together. He loved Saturdays, rain or shine there was a backyard party with music,BBQ,beer,food for the neighborhood pets and friends! He was the man all the neighbors trusted to keep a watch on their homes and keys where he could go in to make sure everything was in tact while they were gone. On, March 11,1975 his granddaughter Melissa Ann Pennington was born, he was a very proud PawPaw and on June 20,1979 his grandson Chad Allen Pennington came along. He tried to be like their Daddy since their Daddy wasn't there for them.Then on July 11, 1994, he was blessed with a great grandson Christophor Fuetes, which he thought hung the moon. My Daddy lived life to it's fullest, always putting others before himself and working hard his entire life. His stories would keep anyone amused,his memories were something I'll never forget. Family was very important and friends were like family, too! It crushed him when his best friend Willie passed away, they grew up together,went to school and both served under General George Patton's Third Army in WWII. Never a Saturday went by these two were not together on our backyard. I can honestly say that my Daddy was a good man, a proud veteran and loved his country. My parents were married 13 years before I was born and I was a Daddy's little girl. He coached me in softball and we won 5 years in a row The Houston Chronicle Softball Award in the Houston Texas Championship. This man never met a stranger and sometimes on Saturday I would come and there were people I didn't know in the backyard with him, even all the neighborhood pets would come by for a treat he would cook for them. When he passed away it broke my heart and spirit but his values and memories will never leave me. It is said God only takes the best but I guess I'm jealous, I miss him so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him, I'll be 60 years old on May 28th and I'd give anything to be able to spend it with him. I wish there were visiting hours in heaven because I miss his advice and time we spent together, Jack Lindsay was not only my Daddy he was my best friend and hero! I will never forget him and what a great man he was. Thank you, Daddy for everything you did for me, Missy and Chad and all the lifes you inspired! You will always be missed and never forgotten!</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
