      Lindsay Robert Vickress
       
        Sept. 15,1957 – Dec. 05,2021
“A Life that touches others goes on FOREVER”
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Lindsay, at home with his wife Susan and his children Ashley and Jason whom he loved more than anything in this world. He showed such courage, strength and heroic determination in his long battle with his illness.
Lindsay was our Rock, he lived such a full and wonderful life. He just got sick and left us too soon. He was such an enthusiastic sports fan. He loved all sports and played hockey for most of his life. He coached his son’s hockey and basketball teams and was forever involved in his daughter’s figure skating life.
Lindsay was a devoted father to his daughter Ashley and son Jason and could not have been a prouder DAD.
He loved the outdoors, swimming at the beach, camping and sitting around a campfire with his friends and family was his world.
He graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1981 with a Bachelor of Mathematics and enjoyed a very successful career in Computer Science from a Software Developer to a Systems Architect. He took great pride in his work, enjoyed tackling difficult and complicated problems and was never afraid to speak his mind.
Lindsay will be sadly missed by his loving wife and children, his brothers, and in-laws, his many nieces and nephews, his wonderful supportive family, friends and neighbours and his loving mother in-law and family overseas.
He will be re-united with his parents Vyvyan and Albert his father in-law Ray and his baby daughter Robyn.

    Only a few very special people come into our lives on just a few occasions yet leave us with so many wonderful memories. Lindsay, you were one of those special people. Your strength, personality, warmth, smile and humour always shone through. Our family times together in Canada and England amounted to just a few weeks over the years. But, quality is always better than quantity and you Lindsay were a quality guy.
    So yes Lindsay you did touch our lives, you will forever be in our hearts and yes we will miss you.
    Love to all our family in Canada.
    Led and Marilyn.

    Sending love to you all. Lindsay was a special guy and will be missed by his English family. I have strong memories of the times we were together both in England and Canada. He was the kind of guy that filled a room as soon as he entered with his smiling face and energy. I loved having in depth chats with him about many things but they always ended with laughter. Will miss him terribly, there will never be another Lindsay Vickress. Love you Lindsay till we meet again ❤

    Although I had not seen Lindsay for many years, he was an old friend. Sad news, indeed. My condolences to Susan and her family.

    Lindsay will be forever in our hearts!!! The memories we have shared with Lindsay from when we were all young and going to the city with coach. To when our group of friends settled down and continued our friendships with each other including spouses and children. We have had great times together over the last 50 plus years -from having our babies, celebrating all the special life moments and special holidays together. You will be missed Lindsay!! Love Trevor, Jane and Family xoxo
