In Memory of
Alan James Lindhorst
-

Alan James Lindhorst passed away peacefully at his home in Richmond TX on Wednesday, January 17 surrounded by his family. He was born on October 8, 1941 in St. Louis, Missouri to Alfred and Verna Lindhorst as the oldest and only son. 

Alan graduated from Missouri School of Mines and enjoyed a long career as a mechanical engineer working for several firms including Litwin and Mustang Engineering. He married his high school sweetheart, Bonnie, on June 6, 1964. They settled in Katy, Texas where they raised their three children. His free time was spent restoring cars (including frequent salvage yard expeditions), camping, fishing and spending time with family and friends. Alan was a life-time learner and enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others. He was always ready to help friends or family with a project such as landscaping, car repair or swing set assembly, but because Alan was a consummate engineer everyone expected to hear his trademark assessment, “Maybe we should do a little more planning before we get started.” Alan began to question his convictions as an agnostic when he was challenged to investigate the reliability of the Bible and the historicity of the resurrection. After thoroughly annotating the works of Josh McDowell and other authors with sticky notes, found that he could not dismiss the evidence. In 1989 he became a follower of Jesus. He and Bonnie faithfully attended Katy’s First Baptist Church for nearly fifty years. Most of all, he deeply loved his family and his Lord.

Alan is survived by his loving wife, Bonnie as well as their three children, Vicki (Charlie) Brent, Keri (Loren) Jones, and Bill (Kasia) Lindhorst, his sister Susan Kilo and twelve grandchildren: Christoph, Lukas, Joshua, Ansley, Avonleigh, Araceli, Jacob, Amberly, Abi, Emily, Rachel, and Hanna. 

He is preceded in death by his parents Alfred and Verna Lindhorst.

Services will be held on Friday February 2, 2024 at Katy’s First Baptist Church. Visitation will be at 9:30 am with the service following at 10:30 am. Burial will follow at Katy Magnolia Cemetery.
