"So sorry to hear of his passing. I began working for him in the 80's and he taught me the tool and die trade as a 20 year old and continued in the trade until I could no longer work. He was a great person, fun to be around, and a great mentor, as well as a wonderful friend. He will be sadly missed."

"So sorry to hear of this. Lyndy was a great person. I always enjoyed talking with him especially about the drag strip. I will miss not seeing him there. I will also miss not being able to crack jokes with him at the dental office. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. "
