Lindel Monroe Bryant, 88, passed away peacefully at his home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri on February 21, 2017. Lindel was born on December 16, 1928 the sixth of ten children in Acorn, Missouri an unincorporated area of Ripley County in southern Missouri.
In 1936 the family moved to a farm outside of Auxvasse, Missouri where he attended Concord School and Church. In the late 1940’s he relocated to Kansas City, Missouri and went to work in the flooring industry and eventually opened a flooring business with his brothers. He served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War period. After his time in the Army he returned to Kansas City.
On June 13, 1957 he married Brenda Joyce Hamilton in Kansas City, Missouri and they had three children together. In the early 1970’s Lindel purchased some acreage outside of Strasburg, Missouri, built a new home, and moved the family to the country. Lindel enjoyed gardening, mowing, cutting wood and other outdoor activities on the property. In 1987 Lindel retired from the flooring business and moved to Deer, Arkansas. While living there he and his brother Frank along with their two sons owned and operated a hog farm for ten years. After selling the hog operation Lindel and Brenda moved to the Lake of the Ozarks where they owned a vacation home since the 1960’s. In 2014 they moved to Lee’s Summit, Missouri because of Lindel’s declining health.
