Billy Lindsey

September 13, 1956 — February 6, 2023

Joshua 1:9
"Do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Billy Dale Lindsey went to be with our Lord and Savior on Monday, February 6, 2023. We were not ready for him to leave his Earthly home, but find peace knowing he had an army of angels waiting to greet him.

Billy was born to Wanda and O.M. Lindsey on September 13th, 1956 in Abilene, Texas. He graduated from Cooper High School in 1975. He attended TSTC in Waco and worked for Texas Instruments in Temple. In the early 80's, he came back to Abilene and started work in the music world for more than forty years, helping thousands of young people start their musical journeys, most recently at N-Tune Music and Sound.

He was introduced to the drums at Jefferson Jr. High. Billy believed that music was the universal language of all mankind from then on. He was in a band called THREE-TWO-THREE, which to this day still keeps in contact. The band was invited to open for the Oakridge Boys, and played many sets all over Texas. Anyone who knows Billy well could tell you a story from one of those nights! He was a fisherman, poker player, prankster, and a party thrower. He was a little country, a little rock and roll, mixed with a little ornery streak at times.

Billy married Angela Simpson in 1990. Together they had a son, Banning Lindsey. He was a proud father of the man Banning has become. Billy and Banning raised each other over the years. He was a great father, mentor, friend and teacher. Two years ago, Banning and his wife Brittney gave Billy the title of Granddad. His granddaughter Maycce was the light of his life, bringing him the joy and love that a first time grandparent finds. He was looking forward to meeting a new grandson, due soon, with a heart full of love.

The simple pleasures of life brought great joy to Billy. He loved a quiet evening at the lake with a pole in one hand and a cold drink in the other. He would look forward to the next hunting trip with his late brother, poker nights with family and friends, bowling leagues, and fishing club outings. He was Uncle B to some and friend to many. Neighbors and friends, Margaret and George Niedecken were a treasured part of his daily life in the later years. From drinks on the porch, to kids birthday parties, it was a bond of love he shared with them.

Billy was preceded in death by his parents Wanda and O.M. Lindsey and his brother Mike Lindsey.

Billy is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Brittney and Banning Lindsey; grandchildren, Maycee Lindsey and baby boy due any day now. His sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Steve Cook of Pflugerville; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins who all loved him dearly.
