Raye Lindsay Obituary, Death – Raye Lindsay, an 81-year-old Kitchener native who has also lived in Truro, Scarborough, Thunder Bay, Flin Flon, Winnipeg, Maple Creek, Toronto, and many other cities, has passed away. He was the devoted spouse of Sandra Lindsay (née Keddy) for 57 years before she passed away. Father of Ian (Kelley) and Bruce (Dana) of Andover, Ontario, Dawn (Phillip Dykeman) of Truro, Nova Scotia, and Heather (Derek Whitehouse) of Bradenton, Florida.
He is the proud grandpa to Eleanor, Isabel, Clifford, Emma, Sarah, Thomas, Samuel, Lianna (Nathaniel Singer), Elijah, Victoria, Connor (Kelly), Adrianna, Laura Grace, and Carson. James Keddy was the beloved brother-in-law of Carol Simunic, Jim Keddy, and the late Robert Keddy’s (surviving) wife, Eva (Emil). The surviving child of Dorothy Martin. Doug and Sandra met at the Toronto campus of the Salvation Army College, where he later earned his degree. After finishing school, he was sent to minister to a church in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. He started dating Sandra, who was stationed in Tweed, Ontario, despite the distance.
After being hitched, the couple moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where Ian was born to work as assistant pastors. There were numerous occasions when Doug and Sandra prayed for guidance, and each time God answered their prayers. Bruce’s parents moved from Manitoba to the city of Flin Flon to serve as pastors there. Dawn and Heather were born in Thunder Bay when they were pastoring there. Doug hosted a call-in Christian radio show while he was there, and it was a huge success.
In addition, he took up ventriloquism and welcomed “Ronny” into the fold. The next stop for Doug and his family was as pastor in Scarborough, Ontario. Eventually, Doug became the Dominion Commissioner for Crusaders at PAOC’s headquarters.
