Bradley Basketball was his passion that he shared with his wife and family. They were season ticket holders for over 50 years, often traveling with the team and making sure to be at every tournament. He was also a season ticket holder for the Indy 500 race. For many years, he and his son went to see the event. He also rooted for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Bears.
Lyndell was a true family man. Nothing was more important to him than his family. His family described him as the best father and grandfather on earth. He was compassionate and kind. He taught them that a handshake is as good as your word. He never knew a stranger and made a friend wherever he went.
