Following a seven year valiant battle with cancer, Michael W. Lindsey, 64, Duncannon, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, December 20, 2020.
Born March 2, 1956 in Harrisburg, he was the son of the late Walter W. Lindsey and Grace (Schell) Lindsey and was a 1974 graduate of Central Dauphin High School.
In 1976 he joined the US Navy and served in Alaska with the Crash Fire Rescue. Retiring early from the New Cumberland Army Depot, Mike was a very hard worker and was always willing to take on new tasks. He worked for the Department of Defense for 25 years as a boiler plant operator apprentice, forklift operator, and many other roles.
Mike loved talking about Jesus! He was a member of Christ Community Church in Camp Hill, where he drove the van transporting college students. Mike also volunteered many other places; at the Resting Place in Harrisburg, as Santa in multiple events, and at the Navy Depot Children’s Christmas parties.
He was an avid fan of most of the Pennsylvania teams: Penn State, Eagles and Philllies. His spare time was spent dancing, driving his Mustang, making candy, cooking, playing with his two puppies and hunting with friends and family. Mostly, he loved traveling with his wife, especially to Aruba, and just spending time with his beloved family.
Surviving is his loving wife of 22 years, Denise J. (Calhoun) Lindsey; two step-daughters: Heather Music-Franczak (and Jared Franczak), Choctaw, OK and Ashley Music-Torres (and Randy Torres), Duncannon; one sister: Karen Lindsey Middleton, Toccoa, GA; one brother: James A. Lindsey (and Marge H. Tees Lindsey), Dillsburg; and his dearly loved granddaughters: Makenna and Amaya.
