Obituary of Carlton Tindley

Carlton Casher Tindley, AKA’s Pipe, Skace, was born June 11, 1933 in Selbyville. DE to the late Alice Tindley Truitt and Casher Williams.  He slipped away peacefully in his sleep on April 18, 2017.  He received his education at Selbyville #210C School. He was united in Holy Matrimony to Barbara Taylor on December 21, 1957. They were married 59 years.  They were blessed with three (3) sons and four (4) daughters. “Skace” retired from Bennett Security and Legislative Hall in the House of Representatives, after many years of service.  He served in the United States Army in Korea as a Quartermaster from 1950-1953.  “Skace” was a member of Zoar United Methodist Church in Selbyville, De.

“Skace” loved the Bible and he would debate with others about it.. “Skace” loved singing and writing his own songs like “It’s Revival Time”.  He loved making wreaths at Christmas time.  He also had a love for cars and had so many that we can only name a few-  Cadillac, Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Camaro, and many more.  He loved to dress from head to toe, he was a dressing man.  His daily routine was to go to the Food Lion in Selbyville and talk to people almost every day. When he would come home, he would sit outside or either in his car and smoke a pipe.  He loved his pipe and that became his nickname.  He acted as if he was the richest man in the world, because his ship was on the way in.  When the mail truck came he would go to the mail box because his check was sure to be there.

In addition to his parents, Carlton was preceded in death by two brothers, Clinton and Vernon Tindley, one granddaughter, Monique Gibbs and one great granddaughter, Kayla Purnell.
