LOWVILLE-Ronald Duane Lyndaker passed unexpectedly on Friday, May 31st 2013 while working in Reinholds, Pennsylvania. He was the Operations Manager for Skyhook Inc. It is with a heavy heart and so much love that we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother. He will be greatly missed.

Ron was born to Helen Widrick Lyndaker and Earl Alvin Lyndaker on August 4th 1956 in Lowville, NY. He lived on Ridge Road in Dadville and attended school in Lowville, graduating from Lowville Academy and Central School in 1974. Ron was always known as a hard worker, running a bulldozer during his high school years while working with his father. Following graduation, he moved to Hazleton, PA where he built towers with Dell’s Tower Service. He married Francine Maher on August 28th, 1976. In 1977, Ron was employed by Skyhook Inc. as an Iron Worker. He and Francine lived in Sheppton, PA until they moved to Weatherly, PA in 1979. Ron joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on April 19th, 1994, serving the Church in many capacities including Branch Presidencies and Bishoprics. His favorite callings were in Young Men’s and Primary. Ron and Francine raised their four children in their Weatherly home until 2002. After losing their home to a house fire, the Lyndaker family moved to Cedar City, UT to be closer to their grandchildren. After moving to Utah, Ron continued to work in the construction field for Brianhead Township, Orton Erections, Bullock Construction and most recently for Schultz Construction. He had recently returned to work at Skyhook Inc.
Ron was able to experience the blessings and joy of 10 grandchildren, whom he loved dearly, Victoria, Christiana and Grant Roscoe Fairall, Ethan, Aurora, Emmalene, Olivia and Ellianna Hall and Alexandra and Jack Tierney.

We take comfort in knowing that Ron is with his grandson, Aiden Robert Tierney, his sister, Judy Leddy and his parents Earl and Helen Lyndaker.
