    I worked at the JCC back in the 70's and met Lindsey during my time there. We would laugh every day about the employees and especially the person I had to report to. He loved going to the 711 store up the street for lunch and if I had the time, I would drive him there so he didn't have to walk. I have been in Wisconsin for a few years and every so often, I would think of Lindsey and have a smile on my face. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great person!

    I met Lindsey when I started at Jewish Family Services in 1980. He always brought me the Sunday New York Times when Mr Engel or who ever read it at the JCC was done with. I always appreciated his efforts and kindness. RIP.
