He was born at Rosemont on June 16, 1927, a son of the late Andy W. and Nita (Jones) Devart.

Mr. Devart attended Flemington High School and then served his country honorably in the United States Navy during World War II on the USS Basilan. He was a member of the Bailey Memorial United Methodist Church, a member of the Masonic Lodge of Flemington and Shriners, as well as the Eastern Star. Lindy was an avid gardener and loved the Washington Football (Washington Redskins) team. He was also very active with the Flemington Elementary School where he was the “Recycling Grandpa,” collecting things to be recycled and then donating the money back to the reading program for the students. Mr. Devart also served as Santa Clause at the school, for the Clarksburg Christmas events, and for many churches over the years. He was always the friendly face around town in his old green Ford pickup-truck and shared smiles and waves to everyone he saw. Over the years he also enjoyed his furry companions, “Ashes and Sheba,” and his most recent “Cocoa” who along with his family and many friends will miss him dearly.
Mr. Devart will be cremated, and a Celebration of his Life will be announced in June for his family and friends.
The Bradley J. Mayle Funeral Home is honored to serve the Devart Family during this time.
