From Pasco, WA, US | Born in Henryetta, Oklahoma

Lindy Samuel Sandlin

Lindy "Sandy" Sandlin went to be with his Lord on Monday, April 6. He was born in Henryetta, Oklahoma on July 8, 1929. On May 15, 1948 Lindy married the love of his life and best friend, Norma Dean Bush. Later that same year they moved to Richland, WA to start a new adventure. Their three sons and daughter were born in Richland.

In Washington he started work as a construction time keeper followed by construction cost and schedule estimating, which developed and matured into project management and eventually self employment as Project Consultant for large-scale construction projects. His career took him all across the United States and as far as Australia and Spain. Lindy loved to work, but his passion and dedication was most evident in his love for his family. Camping trips to Bumping Lake, participation in sports activities, working with horses, fishing trips to Alaska and spending time with Dean at their cabin in Naches, WA provided some of his most cherished activities with the family. Lindy was best known for his love of God and family and dedication to serving others. His favorite "pastime" was building churches and homes for those he loved.

Lindy was an active member of Richland First Church of Nazarene. Memorial contributions may be made to Richland First Church of the Nazarene, Lindy Sandlin memorial fund.

Lindy is survived by his wife, Dean Sandlin; son Steve Sandlin; son Norm Sandlin; daughter Beverly DuBree; and son Don Sandlin; six grandchildren; Jason, Erin, Janis, Allison, Shane and Casey; two great-grandchildren, Rhyan and Maryjane; and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of his life will be held at Richland First Church of the Nazarene in Richland, WA on Saturday, April 11, 2009 at 1 p.m. Viewing will be held on Thursday and Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Einan's Funeral home in Richland and from 12:30-1:00 p.m. immediately prior to the service at the Richland Church of the Nazarene in Richland, WA.

  • Dean and Family:

    Words are hard to come by at a time like this. Although I knew Lindy for over 40 years and had many happy experiences, one thing he said to me recently that I will always cherish was: “you’re family”. Lindy’s strength came from the Lord, and you, Dean. With condolences,

  • I never got a chance to meet Mr. Sandlin in person, but heard many stories about him as told through his son Steve, who has become one of my dearest and closest friends over the years. Knowing Steve, and his generosity, kindness, and good-hearted nature, I can only imagine what the person he gained these virtues from must have been like. My deepest condolences to the entire Sandlin family, may peace be with you in this time of sorrow.

  • Dear Mrs. Sandlin, Steve and Beth Norm , Bev, Don and all the family. It’s ironic that “words” are among all that is left at such a time, when words are often so inadequate. We can only relay how much we care for so many in your family and some of you are considered part of my family and offer our sincere condolences and prayers for strength, in light of your substantial loss. We were fortunate enough to spend time with Lindy, and many in your family, typically while enjoying fishing in Alaska.I will always remember him enjoying thoses experiences around his family, that he obviously loved and loves, so very much. Our perception was always that Lindy knew what was most important in life, and he lived his life the same way. I suspect he was and is, very proud of his family. If there are any words that can help comfort and support you, please consider them said, because such words are intended. May God bless and assist each of you and may you remember all the good things and times of your lives with Lindy and each other. With all our love, Randy, Vicki, Jeremy and Cameron Coke.

  • Mrs. Sandlin,

    The sadness of Sandy’s passing is felt by me and so many I am sure. He was a great boss, and he was a great inspiration in so many ways, professionally and personally. Working for him at “N” Area and later at WPPSS were all great learning experiences. His strong faith was always evident, and all of these things have had a life long impact for me. I thank God for the privelage of knowing him. You have my heartfelt condolensces and my prayers for peace and comfort for you and all of the family.

  • Steve and family,

    I just wanted to send my condolences on the passing of your father. Although I never met him, I can only imagine what a great person he was to have raised a family with the values and generosity that you have shown to so many. Be assured he is in a far greater place and watching down over all of you.

    May God bless him and your family.
