Donald Carl Lindgren

Lindgren, Donald Carl

Donald Carl Lindgren of Briarcliff Manor, New York passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on November 26, 2013 following a courageous yearlong battle with brain cancer. He was seventy-eight.

Don was born on May 20, 1935 in New York to the late Richard and Ida (Thal) Lindgren. He was raised in Yonkers, attended Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, and received a B.A. from Manhattan College in 1957 where he was a member of Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. Don served in the United States Army Reserve stationed at Fort Dix.

Don began his life-long career as a Certified Public Accountant (AICPA, NYSCPA) in New York City at Arthur Young & Company. He was then Director of Finance and Administration for the Corporate Systems and Communications Group at American Express Company, and later Treasurer at Buck Consultants.

Given a strong interest in engineering, a career high point for Don was serving as Executive Director of Finance and Administration at Pei Cobb Freed & Partners (aka I.M. Pei & Partners) during the extension and modernization of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France which culminated with the opening of I.M. Pei’s Glass Pyramid in 1989. He later accepted the position of Director of Finance and Administration with Watson Wyatt & Company. After his retirement in the late 1990’s, Don continued to work as a finance and administration consultant on numerous projects.

Don was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was always supportive of his children’s activities including camping and canoeing with Boy Scout Troop 394 in Briarcliff, and cheering his daughter ringside at horse shows. He was an avid gardener, zealous fan of the N.Y. Giants, and loved to walk on the Rockefeller trails with his wife of 53 years and their dogs.

Don is survived by his wife Janet (Kennedy) of Briarcliff Manor, his son Don and his wife Samantha, his daughter Catherine and her husband Fred Flores, his granddaughters Emma and Maya Flores, his brother Robert Lindgren, his sister-in-law Jean Kennedy, brother-in-law John Kennedy and his wife Mary, and numerous nieces and nephews. His brothers Richard, ODC and Thomas predeceased him.

In accordance with Don’s wishes, the Funeral Mass in his memory was private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Don’s memory to the Briarcliff Manor Volunteer Fire Department Ambulance Corps, 1111 Pleasantville Road, Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510.

Thanks for posting Charlie Sie’s (Class of ’57) obituary. Charlie was my manager’s manager at Xerox for a number of years in the 80’s and a good friend as well, initiated by being fellow Manhattan alumni.
