Obituary for David Lindwall

We are completely heartbroken to share that on Friday 10 February 2023, David Lindwall, loving and much-loved husband, Daddy, and Old Granddad, left us with the dignity befitting a combat veteran.
Rather than waiting to be drafted, David eagerly and voluntarily enlisted in the US Army in 1966 as a paratrooper. He proudly served with C Company, 2/327th, 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam, 1966-1967. David separated from the US Army and began his career with NJ Bell while also serving with the US Army Reserves. He was exceptionally proud to have received the Ralph E. Haines JR. Award for Outstanding Drill Sergeant of the United States Army Reserves in 1974. David enjoyed a successful 34+ year career with NJ Bell/Bell Atlantic/Verizon, receiving numerous awards and accolades and retiring as a Training Manager, while also proudly (and humorously) serving 28 years with the US Army Reserves, retiring as a First Sergeant. He leaves behind his beloved and loving family, wife of 53+ blessed years, Kim, daughter Jenny Lindwall Spano (her husband Alex and step-grandson Christopher), two precious granddaughters, Katherine and Elizabeth, of whom he was exceedingly proud (daughters of Jenny and Bruce), and sisters Joanne, Joyce, Christine and Sarah, and many nieces and nephews.
Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday February 21st at 12PM at the Lee Funeral Home, 317 High St, Mt. Holly. Relatives and Friends may visit with the family from 5-7PM Monday evening February 20th and Tuesday February 21st from 11AM-12PM at the funeral home. Interment will be in The Washington’s Crossing National Cemetery. Arrangements were made with Ed Kaelin III at the Lee Funeral Home, Mt Holly.
In lieu of flowers, donations made to the General Anthony C. McCauliffe NY/NJ Chapter, 101st Airborne Div. Association, of which he was an active and lifetime member, would be much appreciated.

David, Daddy, Granddad, we very, very grudgingly let you leave us but we appreciate that you were able to leave us in peace, no longer fighting for every breath. Our grief is nothing compared to the joy and love we all shared, and we add the following just for you: Combat Vet—Vietnam I am an American Paratrooper If you are recovering my body, Kiss my cold, dead @$$!
