Floyd H. Lindsay

Floyd H. Lindsay, 92, of South Williamsport, passed away peacefully, Sunday, Feb. 25, at home while surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Nov. 26, 1925, in Union Township, a son of the late Charles Lindsay Sr. and the late Laura (Yeakley).

Floyd served for 4 years in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He received an honorable discharge with numerous medals and stars.

Floyd was married in 1949 to the late Edna Fay (Mull). They celebrated 66 years of marriage together.

Floyd earned his bachelor’s degree from Lycoming College in 1955. As “big man on campus,” he successfully established the Epsilon Beta Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity at Lycoming College. Floyd went on to attend graduate classes at the University of Pennsylvania.

He was employed by the Insurance Company of North America as a supervisor. He earned his Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter Certificate (CPCU) in 1973. Floyd retired at age 55 and purchased real estate as part of his retirement strategy. He provided low income housing for those in need. He was extremely forgiving in regards to unpaid rent and was a mentor to the children.

Surviving are his two children, Steve and Diane Lindsay; five grandchildren, Chenoa, Jesse and Matthew Lindsay, and Rusty and Lindsay Repman; and nine great-grandchildren.

Floyd was a “diehard” Eagles fan. He could not believe they actually won the Super Bowl and he stroked out!

He enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Floyd was a philanthropist and contributed annually to over a dozen local non-profit organizations. He was very compassionate and always tried to put a smile on your face.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at 484 Sylvan Dell Road, South Williamsport, with the Rev. Lindsay Repman officiating.

The family will provide flowers in his memory.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to the SPCA.
