Gary Edward Lindstrom

January 8, 1944 - January 10, 2022

In Loving Memory

We were so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. He was a dear friend and colleague of my parents, as well as our mutual friends Betty and Elliott Organick. I've posted a couple of photos of him, helping Betty with her " first hot tub fill", back in the 80's... Sincere condolences to your entire family.

A loss like this is felt by all who knew him. Gary was a very special, kind and unique person. He touched our hearts. Always quick with a smile, a silly new joke or an insightful comment, he will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences.

It was very deverstating that Professor Lindstrom passed away. He is the best professor I ever had. I worked for Professor Lindstrom for two years as a research assistant. He was very kind and patient to me. I learned a lot from him.

When everyone uses kind, funny, intelligent, and friend, you know that you've lost a bright light and a wonderful man.  I would add interesting and inclusive to that list of adjectives. He truly lived life fully.  

Our hearts are reforming around life without Gary and he leaves a big hole.  He was a good friend and bellwether to so many of us.  The world is a better place because of Gary. 

Our most sincere condolences to Shirley, Janice, his family, and many friends who feel his loss so acutely.

Always loved talking cars with Gary on all the great BMCU rides. Gary loved sharing his love for his two unique British cars, his Aston Martin and his Alvis.

Here is talking to my wife Arlene about this DB5.

We will miss having Gary on future rides.

Gary, you were one of the best. Intelligent and charming. What you didn't know about LBCs, no one needed to know. You were kind and welcoming, with the finest wines always on hand. You made me laugh with your silly jokes and wild stories.

I will miss you, but like to think of you, Sandy and the sheepdogs driving among the stars.

Gary was a great and kind friend to many in Salt Lake City. Ever cheerful and upbeat, even when circumstances should suggest otherwise. Great colleague at the University of Utah; great having as a near neighbor in the Avenues; great friend on the squash court. I will miss this colleague of several decades.   - Thure Cerling

I am shocked and saddened, as I've known Gary since I joined Utah over 30 years ago. He is the kindest of souls, a terrific engineer (cars, programs, ...), had inimitable wit that will be sorely missed, and a downright humble and caring person. My entire family in India (parents, brothers) bonded with him, as Gary and Sandy graciously agreed to once stay with them during their India trip. It is a huge loss for many in my family now! But thinking of Gary, I can't help but smile like he always did.
