Richard D. Lindsay was born the second youngest of five boys to Donald and Sigrid Lindsay in rural Ogema, MN. Richard graduated from the Ogema-Waubun School District. After graduation Rick worked for Dynamic Homes on the set up crew. He then worked for Ernest Anderson Sand and Gravel and later for STS Trucking of Detroit Lakes. He loved driving trucks, and saw a lot of gravel pits, construction and resurfacing of roads, and hot plant companies. The biggest part of his career was spent in the Dakotas, with a lot of it being in the “Oil Patch”.
After a long summer away from home, seasonal employment was always his way of life. His off time was spent cutting a little wood and pursuing his love of hunting and fishing. Richard spent a lot of time fishing and took every opportunity he got to get a kid hooked on the “great sport”. He lived in the strawberry lake area all his life, making the woods and lake his home. Rick didn’t leave much of a footprint but will be missed by all who knew him!
Rick is survived by his brothers, Jim (Ermina), of Ogema, MN; William (Joan), of Richwood, MN; and Scott (Ruth), of Long Prairie, MN; his mother, Sigrid Lindsay, of Detroit Lakes, MN; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father and one brother.
Memorial Services will be on Wednesday July 20, 2022; 2:00 p.m. at the West-Kjos Funeral Home in Detroit Lakes, MN. Interment will be in the Strawberry Lake Mennonite Cemetery, Ogema, MN.
