Loyd Ray Lindsey of Galt California who was born January 14, 1937, passed away on July 21 2018 peacefully surrounded by his family.  Raised as a dairy farmer, Ray was a marine reservist, a BYU graduate, and a long-time eight grade math teacher with the Lincoln Unified School District.  He was a scoutmaster and explorer Post Advisor for many years and inspired the lives of many young men. In college he was mountain rescue and a surveyor.  His greatest joy was telling stories to his scouts, school kids, and family.  He was preceded in death by his parents Oden T. Lindsey and Stella Mae (Taunton) Lindsey, sisters Juanita Lorimer, Mary Lou Lehr , and Helen Thomas, and his wife of 56 years Dawnyse (Summerhays) Lindsey.  Ray has left us to join his wife, which bring his children great comfort at this difficult time.  He is survived by his four sons Rodney, Jeffery, John, and William, three daughter-in-laws, (who he always viewed as his own), fourteen grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.  He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and attended the Twin Cities Ward in Galt.
