Mr Lindsay from Balloch was admitted to Monklands Hospital several weeks ago following complications with his hip. Sadly his health deteriorated over his stay and he passed away a day shy of his 88th birthday.
The life-loving pensioner who lived in Cairngorm Gardens was an enthusiastic herald for his area's many groups like its youth football team, toddlers group and after school club – and anyone who submitted their copy before 5pm on the Thursday would have it included in his reports.
Sprightly Mr Lindsay was until recently, a weekly visitor to the News office with his weekly updates, all of which were meticulously typed out on his computer. Age was never a barrier to his wholehearted embrace of technology.
Mr Lindsay is survived by his brother David and sister Elma who live in England plus the family in Cumbernauld - son Robert and daughter-in-law Joyce plus his grandsons Gordan and Craig.
His funeral will take place this Saturday at the Co-operative Funeral Parlour at 10.15am and Daldowie Crematorium at 11.15am.
