Tony Lindsay passed away Sunday morning, October 22, 2017. Tony was born in 1938, London, UK
Whist was his introduction into what is known as Bridge today, learned during times spent in the bomb shelters as a youth. His engineering career took him around the world; for half his life he lived in Germany. He moved to the US where he played a key role in bringing the BMW plant to Greenville SC.
His passions were Bridge (Bronze Life Master), exquisite woodworking and furniture making, and the WNC mountains. His wife Sheila, son Sean, and daughter-in-law Jen, will scatter Tony's ashes in the place he never wanted to leave, these mountains that surround us.
Tony loved being a mentor and felt that the Hendersonville Bridge Club was his second family. For 19 years he took the trek down the Brevard's Connestee mountains to play every M/W/F regardless of the weather.
There will be no services.The Lindsay family asks that it in lieu of flowers, a donation be made on his behalf to a youth bridge group that encourages the youth to learn this wonderful 'sport'. WNC Youth Bridge is a 501.c.3 charitable organization; tax-deductible donations should be given to any HBC director or mailed to Sherry Sims, 107 Little Cherokee Ridge, Hendersonville 28739-8976.
