  5. My deepest sympathies to his family. I am so very sorry for your loss. I first met Lindsay when I was a student at Clear Creek High School and he was an officer with LCPD. Our paths crossed a few times since then but he was always a kind hearted man. I know he will be missed by many.

  9. I worked with Lindsey for several years at LCPD and flew with him a few times. He was a great cop and pilot, but most of all he was a wonderful human being. I am flooded with warm and fond memories of our time together.

  11. Hi Cathy and family.

    I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Lindsay. He was a great man and pilot. Especially a jump pilot flying the Twin Otter for us at the old Spaceland which he took over after the passing of Mr. Boatman and allowed us to continue our weekend enjoyment. Lindsay also designed the jump pilot training program for the Twin Otter that is in use today. He was just a wonderful caring man. Take Care and may God Bless You.

  12. Cathy, thank you for sharing Lindsay with us for all these years. Lindsay was a sweetheart and a heck of an Otter pilot. No one can fly a 20 way like Lindsay. Rest in peace old friend. God Speed, until we meet again. Jim and CJ Parker
