June 13, 1951 - October 18, 2021
Richard G. Lindrup, age 70, went home to be with his Lord & Savior on Monday, October 18, 2021. He was born on June 13, 1951, to George and Althea (Emorey) Lindrup in Muskegon. On November 14, 1981, he married the love of his life, the former, Cynthia Graff, and they spent almost 40 years together. Richard lived a full life and loved people well. He was generous and kind and always willing to help anyone in anyway. He loved playing the drums with the Sons of Thunder and in worship occasionally at Crosswinds Fellowship. Serving others as a small group leader and an elder of his church brought him great joy. He simply loved people and especially loved his family. He found great joy in the times that they would gather together with lots of noise, fellowship and always plenty of good food! He loved to take his grandkids or other visitors for boat rides on White Lake. His many successful years in sales culminated in co-owning RW Bakers in Norton Shores. Building a successful business with his partner allowed them to serve their employees who they considered like family. They worked hard to support local business throughout West Michigan and donated to various groups in the area. Whether at work or church or at home Richard wanted nothing more than to live his life for the Lord and proclaim the gospel truth to all who would listen. That will be his lasting legacy. He is survived by his wife, Cindy Lindrup; children, Amy (Rob) Bouws, Amy (Roger) Hage, Chris (Jamie) Downing, Scott (Kendra Sands) Lindrup; grandchildren that brought him so much joy, Holly Bouws, Benjamin Bouws, Joy Bouws, Bradley Hage, Joshua Hage, Andrew Downing, Kate Downing, Joe Downing, Anna Downing; many nieces and nephews; mother-in-law, Bonnie Graff; brother, Tom (Jackie) Lindrup; and his four-legged faithful companion, Marley. He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, James Lindrup.
