William J. Lindala Jr., 66, passed away March 14, 2010, in Milan.

William was born Feb. 21, 1944, to William J. Lindala Sr. and Anna S. (Kahkonen) Lindala. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy as a submariner. He excelled in many business ventures over the years and enjoyed every minute of each of them. William was an avid lover of animals, especially his cats. William proudly reached sobriety in 1981 and celebrated it every day.

He is survived by his two children, Kathy (Mark) Ireland and William J. Lindala III; grandchildren, Kylie, Derik and Kimberlee; his mother, Anna S. Lindala; and by his loving companion of many years, Beverly Gilbert. The list of others he knew and loved is endless and too numerous to list, just know that you were always in his heart.

He was preceded in death by his father, William J. Lindala Sr., whom he admired and adored.

Visitation will be from 1 p.m. Thursday until the funeral service at 2 p.m. in Groff Funeral Home, 1 S. Main St., Milan.
