Bill David Lindsey

March 14, 1942 - April 3, 2021

Bill David Lindsey was born on March 14, 1942, in Jasper, Texas to Oscar David and Musie Mae Lindsey. He was raised in Pineland, Texas by his paternal grandparents, John and Kittie Lee Lindsey, along with his sister, Diana Lindsey Briener and first cousin, Sandra Lewis Easley. 

Bill graduated from Pineland High School in 1960. After working four years on the pipeline all over the country, he joined Southwestern Life Insurance company. He was the founder, President, and CEO of Greentree Administrator in Beaumont, Texas for forty years. He later sold the company and retired.  

His hobbies included golfing, woodworking, and traveling. He was a Christian man who always put God first in his life. In later years, his thirst for knowledge of the bible led him to reading scripture.  

He married Minnie Zummo on June 28, 1996. Having no biological children of his own, he embraced her children, many grandchildren, and great-grandchildren whom he dearly loved. Bill truly enjoyed his Sunday, “Mima and Papa Bill’s day” with the great-grandchildren. Bill would play every game from monopoly to soccer, and golf. He was the one who spent many relentless hours putting toys together, especially legos.  

Minnie and Bill loved all their wonderful trips to Europe, but most importantly sharing them with all their dear friends. The memories will be cherished forever.  

He is survived by his wife, Minnie Lindsey; her children, Frank and Cathy Zummo of Beaumont; Jolene Zummo Crawford and her husband, Hayden, of Corsicana; and Margaret Zummo Pigg of Dallas; grandchildren, Stephen and Lindsay Bennett Zummo of Beaumont; Ryan and Michelle Caron Zummo of Houston; Blair McCartney Nash and Tyler Nash of Fort Worth; Brooke McCartney of Dallas; Dr. Lindsay Pigg Fujawa and Dr. Douglas Fujawa of Santa Rosa, Florida; Catherine Pigg Harrison and Dr. Craig Harrison of Dallas; and Grant Pigg of Fort Worth; great-grandchildren, Stephen Bennett Zummo, Russell Wayland Zummo, and Franklin Reimers Zummo of Beaumont, and Enzo Edward Zummo of Houston; sister, Diana Lindsey Briener and her daughter, Deanna and Charles Wellis of New Caney; and many uncles, nieces, nephews, and fantastic friends. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Musi Lindsey and Oscar Lindsey; grandparents, John and Kitty Lindsey, and sister, Sue Hoffman, all from Pineland.

I had the pleasure of knowing Bill since the early 1980's. He was a part of my extended family then and after going our separate ways, we met up again when he married Minnie. I would share hugs, kisses and fond memories at church on the weekends. He was a great man who will be missed. That wonderful laugh and contagious smile will remain with me forever. May he rest in peace. Love you ... Uncle Bill.
