Bob Lindsey was a kind, gentle, sincere and generous man
whose smiling face brought joy and relief to those he touched. His love
for others was very often put into action as it is shown in the following
article that appeared in the Athens Banner-Herald:
I would like to compliment the service I received from
Mr. Bob Lindsey, pharmacist at the Eckerd Drug Store in Athens Square on
the Atlanta Highway. I was seriously bitten by a dog on Saturday, May 5,
while outside Bogart. I wrapped my foot in paper towels and began the drive
into Athens to seek treatment. I stopped at Eckerd's to purchase some peroxide
to rinse my wounds. As I approached the pharmacy to briefly discuss my
problem and ask the location of peroxide, Mr. Lindsey, pharmacist on duty,
immediately came out from behind the counter, kneeled on the floor and
put my foot on his knee. After examining the wounded area with concern,
he sat me down and went behind the counter. He returned within seconds,
cutting a clean plastic jug in half with a knife. He placed my foot in
the jug and began rinsing the wounds with peroxide. After thoroughly cleaning
my foot, he got gauze, scissors and tape out of his first aid kit and bandaged
the affected area. Mr. Lindsey warned me about the danger of infection
from a bit and reminded me several times that the bandage was in no way
intended to be treatment but was merely to keep the wounds clean until
I could secure medical services in Athens. When I was seen at Gilbert Health
Service at the university, about an hour later, the attending physician
said that the wounded area was very clean and well cared for. I would like
to commend Mr. Lindsey on his dedication in the field of medicine. His
service to me may have made the difference in the onset of infection. Thank
you, Mr. Bob Lindsey. Signed, A Reader.
Bob Lindsey was loved by many, many people. He will be
missed by all.
