Paul Henry Lindquist, 86, of Shadyside Rd., Lakewood, NY and New Port Richey, FL, passed away Monday, March 22, 2021 in UPMC Hamot, Erie, PA. He was born on January 18, 1935, the son of the late Gunnard and Ruth Anderson Lindquist. Paul was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church, graduated from Jamestown High School in 1952 and attended Jamestown Community College. He served in the U.S. Army active duty and reserve unit as a staff sergeant E-6. A lifelong area resident, Paul and his family lived for 33 years in the house he built in 1959 on Westman Road, Bemus Point. He retired in December 1996 after 25 years of service at the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities, Electric Division, as an electric meter serviceman and served as a federal credit union officer and a member of the retirement committee.

A man of strong faith, Paul had a close relationship with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He enjoyed golfing, gardening, carpentry, and auto repair. He enjoyed spending the winter months in New Smyrna Beach, FL and recently purchased his own place in New Port Richey. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
