James Paul Lindsey Jr age 59 passed away peacefully at home during the early hours of April 11th, 2021. Paul was born in Hobbs New Mexico on August 6th, 1961, to Jim and Betty (Males) Lindsey. He was the only son and the youngest of three children. He graduated Hobbs High School in 1979. During his teenage years, every summer Paul would travel to Soper OK staying with his Uncle Walter, Aunt Bernice and cousins, working the family ranch. His love for Oklahoma led him to continue his education at Wilburton, attending Eastern Oklahoma State College on a bull riding scholarship. Paul remained in OK after School, Soper became home to him. Paul enjoyed spending time with family, telling stories, riding horses, working cattle, hunting, fishing, camping, boating and sports. As a father of three boys there were a lot of summers spent at the lake camping, swimming, fishing and skiing. For many years he traveled to ball fields near and far. He was very passionate and vocal about watching his boys play ball, and rarely missed a game! When the grandkids came along, he took on the role of a fun papa, teaching them to ride horses, play baseball, shoot guns, and so much more. He always grilled at the grandchildren's birthday parties because everyone loved his bbq burgers. He was an avid Dallas Cowboy fan sometimes running others out of the room if they didn't take the game as serious as he did. Paul is preceded in death by his parents Jim & Betty Lindsey and son Spencer James Lindsey.
