Roy William Lindsey, 87, of Townsend, TN moved to his new home on higher ground, Monday, August 9, 2021. Having led music in several Blount County churches; and, having sang in a quartet with his brother and sisters in earlier years, was just a warm up for the praises he now sings to his heavenly father as a part of God’s choir. Roy was a member and deacon of Bethel Baptist in Townsend. He served our country as a member of the US Army near end of the Korean War in the 50’s and was a proud Veteran. He worked for Harrison Construction before retirement and enjoyed working part time after retirement for the Maryville Chambers of Commerce at the Townsend Visitor Center where he joked about loving to tell people where to go; but, the job he loved most was as music director where he could praise his heavenly father and enjoy helping others do the same.
