Lyndon Paul Abran, 63, of Princeton, IN, died suddenly after suffering an accident while playing softball. He was born January 31, 1958 to Walt and Rhonda Abran in Princeton, and was an only child growing up, but spent many days and nights with cousins.
Lyndon graduated from PCHS in 1976 and went on to become a talented tool and die maker. He worked at Hurst Mfg, now known as Nidec, Hansen Motor Corporation, and more recently, Holzmeyer Die and Mold Manufacturing, all in Princeton. There weren’t many things Lyndon was not able to do. He used to say he didn’t really understand it himself, how he could just pick something up and know how to fix it.
He was an avid reader and loved fast motorcycles and cars, always a daredevil. As a child he and his cousin, Gary, played a game of chicken, on their bicycles, neither chickened out. He loved his cats and took in any stray that came to his door. He had a heart of gold and always wanted to help and protect those he loved, when he felt they needed it. Family meant everything to him. A country music enthusiast, Lyndon joked about dressing like Porter Wagoner. He loved making people laugh with corny jokes. He always had a pocketful of new ones to share, and would laugh right along with you, at their humor.
Lyndon, at the age of 21, was preceded in death by his father, Maurice Walton Abran, at the age of 34, his mother, Rhonda Rae (Wright) Abran. He has grieved those losses all these years, since. He has now, finally, been reunited with them in heaven. Also, preceding him in death were a special grandmother, Pearl Wright, as well as maternal grandfather and paternal grandparents, several cousins, aunts and uncles.
Lyndon is survived by his first cousin, Anita (Hurst) Simpson, of Owensville and Wonga Maurice Hornback, of Princeton, and a very special friend, Jamie Bredemeier, of Francisco.
