Richard Lindwall, Jr. Obituary

Richard Levern Lindwall, Jr., age 68, of Asheville, NC, passed away peacefully, on Thursday, November 23, 2023, at Mission Hospital in Asheville.

Richard was born on February 25, 1955, in Atlanta, Georgia, to the late Dr. Richard Lindwall, Sr. and Iva Bea Paulk Lindwall. He attended North Springs High School in Atlanta and Kennesaw Junior College.

Richard had a wonderful wit and he brought happiness to those around him. He loved hunting, fishing, beautiful and luxurious cars, and he was very mechanically gifted.

 In 1975, Richard suffered a traumatic brain injury, which changed his life. In 1998, he moved to Asheville, NC where he lived in a home for adults with disabilities, overseen by Liberty Corner Enterprises.  Through the love of his parents, family, church, care-givers, and faith, Richard experienced a life of joy.

Those left behind to cherish the memory of Richard are his loving brother, Reverend David Lindwall and his wife Stephanie; and nephew and nieces, Jack (wife Morgan, and their daughter Ruth Eileen), Grace, Hannah (Casey),  and McKinley (husband Will and their daughter Ruth Ann).
