Charles Adam Lindert

Charles Adam Lindert, remembered for his sparkling eyes, gentle demeanor, and devotion to luthier artistry, passed away peacefully and with family the afternoon of Thursday, August 9, 2018. He was 62.

Charles died in compassionate care at Confluence Health of Wenatchee, Washington, of complications to a stroke suffered late Monday evening.

A son, brother, husband, and father, Charles—”Chuck” to most, and “Dad” to a privileged few—lived a life of abundance through his passion and talent for creating, his patience, ingenuity, and dedication to craft, and the people who supported him. His designs, inventions, and artwork are dearly loved and cherished by many, and his influence on countless musicians stands as an honor to his name and life’s passion. He smiled far more than he frowned, and tirelessly observed for ways he could help and inspire. He exuded a gentle kindness that extended to everyone he met. To his children, he passed along a childlike curiosity and wonderment—emblems of a most honest and gratifying life.

Mr. Lindert is survived by his children; his son, William James Lindert of Manson, Washington, and daughters, Dianna Louise Clingan of Corvallis, Oregon, and Katie LaBelle Lindert of Los Angeles, California; his siblings, Roderick Lindert of Wenatchee, Washington, Stanley [and Marcella] Lindert of Manson, Washington, Christie [and Steve] Fry of Richland, Washington; his nephews Jason Stocker, Jacob Lindert, Justin Fry, Andrew Fry; and nieces Sybylla Lindert, Jenna Fry, and Rosellyn Lindert.

A memorial celebration potluck will be held with music in his honor on Sunday, September 16, 2018 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Grange Hall of Manson. All who knew and loved Chuck are welcome to come and share in his remembrance.
