PRICE - Robert Anthony "Rev" Lindsey, 68, was called home to Our Father on Feb. 13, 2010 at his home.
He was born June 30, 1941 in Price to Odell and Robert "Birdie" Leger Lindsey.
At the age of 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and after many voyages on the seas of the world, he returned home after 20 years of service.
On Aug. 13, 1981, he married the "LOVE" of his life, Toni Maye Nielsen in Price, and they were blessed with 28 years of marriage.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He shared a deep and abiding love for his family, grandchildren and his great-grandson. One of his greatest enjoyments was meeting weekly with the coffee group at Ricardo's. Over the years they mined a lot of coal, B.S., and solved many problems. Rev always had a warm welcome and a new joke to share with everyone. He never met a stranger and never repeated the same joke twice.
He spent many years in the coal mining industry in Colorado and Carbon County where he made many lasting friendships. Whether he was called upon to marry a couple, help someone in need, decorate a cake, or demonstrate his cooking skills. You always knew you could count on "Rev".
His passions included collecting guns and knives and riding his Harley with the wind ruffling in his beard. Rev was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend who will be dearly missed by all that knew him.
He is survived by his "Love", Toni Maye Lindsey; children, Robert Anthony (Misty)Lindsey II, Shane Clarence (JaiLene) Odell Lindsey, Robyn Annette (Robert) Tipton, Stacy Lee Lindsey, Jenalee (Jason) Ward, Maleah Shantell Lindsey, and Anthony Ray Lindsey; brothers and sisters, Ronnie (Phyllis) Lindsey, David (Bonnie) Lindsey, R. Maxine Lyon, Kathy (Bob) Donathan; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Gordon (Paula) Nielsen, Kathy (Gary) Birch, Ralyn (Denny) Carter and Wayde (Tracy) Nielsen; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Timothy.
