Julian Ray Lindley

June 27, 1946 — February 13, 2022

 

Julian Ray Lindley was born on June 27, 1946 in Marked Tree, Arkansas to Hosie Daton Lindley of Vina, Alabama and Velma Lee Parks of Tupelo, Mississippi. Julian passed away on Sunday, February 13, 2022, at the age of 75; at his home surrounded by his loving wife and daughters. Julian is survived by his wife, Dely Lindley, whom he married on September 17, 1991.  Survivors include his 6 children: Allissa Lindley Wilson of Park Hills, Missouri; Matt (Danielle) Lindley of Little Rock, Arkansas; David (Brittney) Lindley of Sheridan, Arkansas; Kelley (Matt) Thrift of Carlisle, Arkansas; Samantha Lindley of Sheridan, Arkansas; and Iana Lindley of Olive Branch, Mississippi. 13 Grandchildren: Tyler Lindley, Faith Wilson, Mason Ashcraft, Elizabeth Ashcraft, Kylie Gilbreth, Blakely Lindley, Cash Lindley, Kaleigh Stires, Paige Lee, Tyler Thrift, Tyler Marie Lee, Alex Stripling, and Lane Stripling.  3 Great Grandchildren: Kane Lindley, Landon Stires, and River Chalifoux.  He is also survived by his brothers:  Jessie Daton Lindley of Proctor, Arkansas; Homer Ricky Lindley of Proctor, Arkansas; Robert Lindley of Millington, TN; Donald Glynn Lindley of Marion, Arkansas; and Ronald Lynn Lindley of Marion, Arkansas; and his sisters: Judy Lindley of Proctor, Arkansas; Patricia Louise Tacito of Marion, Arkansas; Mary Elizabeth Smithy of West Memphis, Arkansas; and Stella Cook of The Villages, Florida.  Julian is also survived many nieces, nephews, along with many other family and friends.  Julian is preceded in death by his parents:  Hosie Daton Lindley and Velma Lee Parks, along with his 3 brothers: Billy Joe Lindley, Junior Lindley, and Jimmy Lindley.

Julian grew up and graduated from Marked Tree High School, and later joined the Army in 1966, where he found his love for electronics and completed the U.S. Army’s Signal School.  He later went on to study Information Technology and began working during the pioneer age of computers with companies such as RCA and IBM.  He continued to work in IT until his retirement as a Novell Engineer. He loved archery in which he would join archery tournaments and hunting with his long bow.  Julian also had a passion for reading.  He could be found in Barnes and Noble for hours reading on his favorite subjects in which he would say, “knowledge is power”.  Julian had an immense love for “all of his people” and he was always willing to help anyone in need.  Some of his biggest passions were vacationing with his wife Dely and their daughter Iana, spending time with his family and friends; and making sure everyone knew the Lord.  He spent his free time volunteering at the VA with his best friend Don, and if you ever received a pamphlet on your car stuck under the windshield wiper asking if you were saved, it was probably Julian who placed it there.  He enjoyed sharing stories about the blessings he has received in life, along with debating on politics, and sharing with everyone the story of meeting his wife, Dely.  His favorite song was Filipino Baby, and he would sing it to her often.

He loved with all that he had to offer and was excepting of the love of “all of his people” in return.  His spiritual guidance, wisdom, and loving heart will be missed by many.  One day we will all see him again as we know he is rejoicing in heaven. We can all agree that when he greets us next, the first thing he will say is, “Glad you got to see me.”
