Every now and then you get the opportunity to meet a true hero and Lindsay Chatterton was just that man. He passed on February 27, 2023. He lived in Winlock for nearly 40 years and served as a Fire Commissioner for 18 years. He had a combined service in the fire departments of well over 50 years. It wasn't just his time in the fire departments in Kelso and Winlock that made him a hero, he was also a WWII veteran.
He gave selflessly as a soldier and as a fire commissioner, but he was just as selfless as a neighbor. I didn't know him as a fire commissioner or EMT, I only knew him as our neighbor who would help at the drop hat. For years, you would see Lindsay walking every day down the Winlock Vader Rd. to have coffee with the guys. He kept cows on his property until just a few years ago, always offering a side of beef. Lindsay was always kind, never saying a harsh word about anyone.
