Officiating, Monroe McVey and Dr. Cheryl Benson.

Oscar was a native of Forsyth County, a longtime resident of Snow Camp and a member of the Hickory Grove United Methodist Church. He was a proud and decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps, serving during World War II on board the U.S.S. Wichita in the European-African and the Pacific Theater of Operations. Oscar was a longtime member of the American Legion and worked at the Liberty Drive-In where he loved to cook and entertain all the customers, young or old, with his lively conversation. His witty sense of humor kept him young at heart and his kind and caring personality made him loved by all he met. Oscar touched so many lives and he will be missed by all. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Eleanor Williams Lindley, son, James Ronald Lindley, and parents, A.O. and Annie Daffron Lindley.

Survivors: his loving step-son and family, of Texas and many loving nieces, nephews and special friends.

The family would like to express a special thank you to the loving staff of Hospice and Palliative Care of Alamance-Caswell.
