Life Story for Lonnie W. "Dart" Lindquist

Lonnie (Dart) Lindquist unexpectedly passed away on Thursday, November 6, 2014, at his home in Ketchum, Idaho. He was 49.

Lonnie was born on Saturday, October 16, 1965 (on his Dad’s birthday), in Moscow, Idaho, and grew up there, except for the period 1974 to 1976 when he lived in Fairbanks, Alaska. He graduated from Moscow High School in June of 1984 and started college that fall at the University of Idaho, where he pledged the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. In May of 1988, just shy of earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting, he moved to Ketchum, Idaho, where he has resided ever since.

Lonnie loved the outdoors and for many years lived to ski. He also loved to play Ultimate Frisbee. Joining the Ketchum Ultimate Frisbee team in 1989 and playing through 2005, he helped lead the team’s progression through sectional’s, regional, and ultimately the sport’s highest level, the nationals. In addition, he was a passionate and quite successful Fantasy Football player.

He started working construction in Ketchum shortly after moving there in 1988 and continued to hone his craft while working for Gary Storey, a local contractor. As a master carpenter, he helped build numerous houses in the Sun Valley area, many of them luxury homes. After completing his last one, Lonnie was employed by the owners, Catherine and Bob Beyer, to look after their place and to keep everything running and in tip-top shape. Lonnie had spent most of this summer traveling back and forth between Ketchum and Petit Lake (close to Stanley) working on a group of cabins that his boss had recently purchased.

Lonnie was preceded in death by his father, Michael J. Lindquist, grandparents Willmer and Virginia Lindquist, grandfather Richard Reynolds, grandmother Anne Styer, uncle Mike Reynolds, and cousin Brent Reynolds. He is survived by his mother Patricia Lindquist-Hulett and step-father Joe Hulett (Lewiston, ID); his brothers Craig Lindquist (Boulder Creek, CA) and Christopher (Mary Jo) Lindquist (Richland, WA); nephew John Lindquist and nieces Keeghan, Katie and Julie Lindquist; bonus brothers Steve, Kevin and Christopher Hulett; uncles Rick (Lucille) Reynolds, Steve (Cindy) Reynolds, and Paul Lindquist; step-grandfather Stan Styer and step-grandmother Joyce Reynolds; step-aunts Annette Owen and Marie McCabe and numerous cousins.

Lonnie was especially proud to be Henry and Lilly Mahoney’s godfather. He had many, many friends and was especially close to Pat Benson, Jim Hart, Kalani Lima, Matt Mahoney, John Maury, Mike Neary, Eric Summel and Steve Thompson, who were like brothers to him…he was a great friend to all and he touched many other lives.

A memorial service for family and close friends will be held in Hailey, Idaho, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 15, at the Wood River Chapel, followed by a celebration of Lonnie’s life at 4:00 p.m. at Whiskey Jacque’s in Ketchum. A second memorial service will be held in Moscow, Idaho, on Saturday, November 22, at 11:00 a.m., at Short’s Funeral Chapel, followed by urn interment at Moscow Cemetery. A reception will be held following these services at the Best Western in Moscow.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, P.O Box 1496, Hailey, Idaho 83333.
