Franklin J. Lind­say

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Obituaries -

Born in Cal­i­for­nia on August 1, 1925, Frank passed away af­ter a short ill­ness on April 5, 2019. He is sur­vived by his wife, Linda Cham­b­liss, sis­ter-in­law, Carol Spitzmiller, as well as his daugh­ter, Marta Lind­say, and grand­chil­dren, Danielle Liv­ingston, her fam­ily, and An­drew Brenkus and all his nieces, neph­ews and their de­scen­dants. Frank lived quite a life dur­ing his 93 years. He en­listed with the US Army Air Corp. late in the war (due to his age) and sub­se­quently re­ceived his bach­e­lors from UC-Berkley. He had nine lives and the tenth one got him. His nine lives are:

1) TB at age 12; 2) while in the ser­vice, he was in a hor­ri­ble car ac­ci­dent on base and the mil­i­tary doc­tors wanted to am­pu­tate his leg (com­pound frac­ture) but, a Priest in­ter­vened. He was hospi­tal­ized from his

19th Birth­day to his 20th Birth­day; 3-8) as an ATP Pi­lot, Frank had many ex­pe­ri­ences over his 50 years of fly­ing. He was, how­ever, in six air­plane ac­ci­dents. No one was ever hurt and all were due to me­chan­i­cal fail­ure; 9) the last of his 9 lives was be­ing clipped by a mov­ing train. None of the road sig­nals were on and a man in an­other van was killed; 10) which pales in light of the above, is the one that got him.

What a life, lots of travel, fun and teamwork. We’ll all miss you Buddy. Xxoo
