Lindy was my Wife's second cousin via Nelda Glynn Molloy Thompson. He visited us after Nelda's funeral and shared his scrapbook with us. He was a kind man and really loved the Lord. It breaks our heart to hear of his passing, especially during this time.

Love and prayers from Jon and Kathleen Jones

As being the youngest of the family and ofcourse the only girl, I am so thankful that Lindy set an example and the course to travel on in this world. He seemed to have the steadiness of our father and the graciousness of our mother. The one word I know describes Lindy to me is honesty, he was never afraid to tell you if he disagreed with you. Never did he compromise the truth he believed and I am very

Lindy meant a lot to our family as we benefitted from his support over the years. My word for Lindy would be strong. Not only physical strength for most of his life, but He was strong in the faith. His habits of reading, studying and writing benefited the church at Lavon. His application of that study as he counseled others showed his heart. We look forward to seeing Lindy again.

Inspiring service. One of the things on my bucket list was to meet and spend an afternoon with Lindy and hearing baseball stories including baptizing Felipe Alou, taking Mickey Mantle to church among other MLB players, unfortunately I never met him. It's a rarity for a member of the Lord's Church to play professional sports and especially keep his faith. I first read a copy of Lindy's publication in Yater Tant's Vanguard Magazine in the late 70's. I was a

When I think of you, I think of committed.
You were committed to God, your family & your baseball.
And will be remembered for all the love and care you showed
along the way.
So glad to have had the opportunity to know and enjoy your
your fellowship.

From the 1st time I ever heard of Lindy McDaniel he was one of my heroes. While attending David Lipscomb Elementary in the mid to late 50's, someone told me he was a Christian. From then on I was a follower of his career. I had the honor of 1st meeting Lindy in the 1990s, and after that meeting, we corresponded occasionally. I treasure and kept his letters to me and the encouragement he always provided with regard to life, following Christ, and being the best at whatever one does. Live with God Lindy. Tom

Lindy was a great example of a successful athlete who never lost sight of his allegiance first to Jesus Christ our Lord. He is an alumnus of Florida College from the year 1956 and because of his illustrious career we named our baseball field in his honor.

He will be remembered for his outstanding talent as a baseball player, but more importantly as a humble servant of our Lord. I am thankful to have had him as a dear friend and brother in Christ.

Marilyn and I send our love and condolences to Nancy and the whole family.

That was beautiful.
Glad that so many could come celebrate his life.
Loved the stories and memories shared.
I am thinking Von and Alice met him at the gate with Newell and Ada Mae.
Lindy will update them with all the news from here.
God is soooo GOOD to give us these gospel spreading farmers to plant seeds for the Holy Spirit to grow.
Praying for your comfort.
