David Lindsay

AGE: 84 • Colts Neck

Dave Lindsay, age 84, died June 18, 2017, at Riverview Hospital in Red Bank.

Born in Wilmington, DE, Mr. Lindsay grew up in San Francisco and Wilmington, spending his most formative years at St. Andrew's School, Middletown, DE, (1951), where he enjoyed a variety of sports, excelling in football, track and field, and tennis. He attended Williams College (1955), where he played squash for 4 years and was involved in Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and AF-ROTC.

After serving in the U.S. Air Force in Texas and Hawaii, Mr. Lindsay and his young family moved to Pennsylvania briefly before settling in New Jersey. He lived in Colts Neck since 1964. He spent his working career as an executive in Information Technology at Bristol-Myers Squibb and, in administrative positions, at International Flavors & Fragrances.

In addition to being an attentive husband and father, Mr. Lindsay is remembered for his thoughtfulness, fairness and low-key yet competitive spirit. His greatest athletic passion in life was playing squash. He also enjoyed 50 years of tennis and, later in life, golf. He was captain of the Sea Bright Squash Club's C-Team for many years and ran the NJ Squash Racquets Association C-League for a few years during the 1970s. He won the state Squash Doubles Championship in the late 1970s. Beyond his athletic pursuits, Mr. Lindsay also enjoyed nature (dabbling in bonsai for a while), and had a lifelong love of a variety of music from around the world, especially tunes from the 1920s-'50s.

Surviving are his wife of 62 years, Constance Doyle Lindsay; a daughter, Diane Lindsay Waitt, and her husband William, of New Monmouth, NJ; a son, William Baker Lindsay, and his wife Phyllis, of Plymouth, MA; 5 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren; and 2 sisters, Margaret Lindsay Bergeron, of Dolgeville, NY, and Janelee Volkmann Hammerstrom, of Kingsburg, CA, and their families.

At the request of the deceased, there will be no viewing or memorial service. Donations in Mr. Lindsay's memory may be sent to St. Andrew's School, 350 Noxontown Road, Middletown, DE, 19709-1605.

Arrangements are under the direction of Waitt Funeral Home, 501 Hwy. 79, Morganville, NJ / 732-566-5300
