James R Lindley of Cedarville passed away early Saturday morning,
August 6th, 2022 at Inspira Medical Center, Vineland with his family by
his side. Although his health was declining, his death was unexpected.
He was 84 years old.
Born in Paramus NJ, he was the son of Thomas Sr and Margaret Lindley.
He had been a Cedarville resident most of his life.
James worked for Remmert Warner and Pratt & Whitney in Florida
several years prior to relocating his wife, Connie and three daughters to
Cedarville to take employment with Airwork Corporation where he
remained for 40 years and until plants closure in 2004. He went onto
working for the next 14 years for Sheppard’s Farms where he retired at
the age of 80. He established his business J&D Lawnmowers in his
brother in-laws, Doug Bowman’s Sunoco station and later moved his
business to his current residency. He ran his lawnmower business along
with his wife Connie for 45 years. In addition to his lawnmower
business he also opened a gift shop, Covered Bridge Gifts with his wife.
They were not only a strong marital couple but also a wonderful
business team for most of their married lives.
James was a devoted and dedicated husband, father, and grandfather.
He had strong work ethics and was generous to many. He was a master
at repairing small engines and there was nothing he couldn’t repair. He
had a love for antique vehicles which led him to purchase and restore a
1929 Chevrolet flatbed truck to its original status with his son in-law,
Surviving him is his wife, Constance (Bowman) of 62 years, daughters
Pamela Ossiboff and her husband Robert of Upper Deerfield, Deborah
