He was the beloved husband of the late Dorothy A. Lindsay for 63 years. Devoted father of Dorothy L. Kelley and her husband Christopher of East Bridgewater, James C. Lindsay, Jr. of Weymouth, Thomas F. Lindsay of Weymouth, and Joseph A. Lindsay of Hingham. Proud “Pa” of Dr. Sean P. Kelley and Lindsay E. Kelley. Brother of Marion Karakozian of Quincy, Mary Heirty of Florida, the late Stephen “Sonny” Lindsay, the late Richard Lindsay, the late Catherine Heffernan, and the late Charles “Tiny” Lindsay. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Born in Roxbury, James lived in Dorchester and South Boston before moving to Weymouth, where he resided for 68 years. James C. Lindsay served in the United States Navy during WWII and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan at the young age of 17. Upon discharge he was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, Asiatic Pacific Area Medal with one star, and the American Area Medal. Upon his return home, he became a member of I.B.E.W. Local 103, and was employed by the James Sugden Company. For the remainder of his career, he worked as a cable splicer for the MBTA until his retirement in 1989.
