ForeverMissed

     Lyndell D. Agee, 84, of Peoria, passed away on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at Manor Court in Peoria.

     A Memorial Service will be at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 3, 2019 at Clary Funeral Home, 3004 West Lake Avenue in Peoria. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.

     Lyndell was born on March 24, 1935, in Sikeston, MO, a son of Lawrence and Gertrude (King) Agee. He married Delores Sellers on February 20, 1954 in West Peoria. She preceded him death on January 19, 2019 in Peoria. He was also preceded in death by parents; daughter, Kathy Agee; and siblings, Lloyd Agee and Wanda Barrett.

     He is survived by his children, Karen Reeves of West Peoria, Brenda (Scott) Gray of Peoria and Michael (Becky) Agee of West Peoria; six grandchildren; and eight great grandchildren.

     Lyndell worked as a Special Assignment Marketing Developer for Caterpillar. He retired, after 40 years of service, in 1992.

     Bradley Basketball was his passion that he shared with his wife and family. They were season ticket holders for over 50 years, often traveling with the team and making sure to be at every tournament. He was also a season ticket holder for the Indy 500 race. For many years, he and his son went to see the event. He also rooted for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Bears.

     Lyndell was a true family man. Nothing was more important to him than his family. His family described him as the best father and grandfather on earth. He was compassionate and kind. He taught them that a handshake is as good as your word. He never knew a stranger and made a friend wherever he went.

     Memorial contributions may be made in Lyndell's memory to TAPS or PCAPS.

I can't believe you and grandma are gone..it all happened so fast, and of course no one will ever be ready to lose you.. Everyone is broken..I'm broken..i will miss so much about them i could go on for days..My two WONDERFUL grandparents made sure I never went without & spoiled me rotten..I'm going to miss talking to grandpa about WWE and all the current champions and PPVs that we always chatted about..Im going to miss watching family feud with them and laughing at people's dumb answers...Not too long before they passed, after grandpas heart attack..i went and got them dinner and we watched the first 48..they sat in their recliners and i made a pallet on the floor in front of them..JUST because i wanted to be close to them and comfy..28 years old. How did I get so lucky for so long..I don't want to face reality. Losing my mom was hard enough, but this one is a really hard hit too....Until we meet again!!! Love and miss you so much!!
