Lindsay Crossett

On February 2, 2017, a day determined by God, Lindsay Crossett departed this life and joined Christ in a new phase of life.

Lindsay was born to Harry and Kathleen Crossett June 29, 1925 in rural Clay County near Kearney. He graduated from Kearney High School, and like many young men of the Greatest Generation, entered the military and served during W.W. II in the European Theater. On his return from the military he entered William Jewell College.

He met and married Lillian Niebrugge in 1947. He owned and operated a farm east of Kearney until 1958 when he moved his family to Liberty where he was the County Executive Director for the ASCS Office of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Linday served his community in many ways: member and elder and long-time adult Sunday School teacher at the First Presbyterian Church of Liberty, President of the Liberty Chamber of Commerce, Liberty City Councilman, Clay County Red Cross board chairman, William Jewell College alumni association Board of Governors, Liberty Rotary president and Paul Harris Fellow, and Chairman of the Liberty Planning and Zoning Commission.

In the early 1970’s Clay County prepared to celebrate its 150 year anniversary with year-long activities and events touching every part of the county. Lindsay served as the general chairman of this celebration. Lindsay also served on a national basis as the president of his professional organization for County Executive Directors of ASCS-U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Upon retiring from the USDA, Lindsay worked for over 20 years as Business Development Officer for Commercial Bank and Commerce Bank.

He is predeceased by his parents; sister, Helen; his wife, Lillian; and a grandson, Lindsay.

He is survived by his sister, Virginia; three sons, Joe (Bonnie), Tom (Ruth Ann), and John (Gretchen); nine grandchildren; and 21 great grandchildren.

Family will receive visitors at the First Presbyterian Church of Liberty, 138 North Main, Liberty, Mo., from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 25, 2017. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. at the Church. In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations to the First Presbyterian Church of Liberty.

Arrangements are through Fry-Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Kearney.
