Anon: Mystery vet likely Lindel rather than Findel Coomer

Looking for a WWII vet from Columbia: Findel Coomer

By Anon

I suspect the Coomer gentleman about whom Mr. Bruce Brown requested information was Lindel (rather than Findel) Coomer.

Lindel was born on January 18 (military records) or 19 (birth & Social Security records) January, 1920 in Adair County, Ky., the son of Lonnie and Kate Coomer and the younger brother of Mr. Obie J. Coomer. He married Lucille Borders in Cook County, Ill., on 25 April 1941; enlisted in the US Army on September 6, 1944 and separated out on March 15, 1946, grade Pfc; died in Illinois on December 27, 1995; and his remains were buried in Bethania Cemetery, Cook Co., Ill. Lindel's military gravemarker is viewable online at

Lindel and Lucille's son Herbert Ronald "Ron" Coomer passed in late 2003. Ron's obituary (viewable online) listed by name his survivors: mother, two children, three grandchildren, and three sisters. The obituary also stated that he was "uncle of many."

Lindel's name needs to added to the Adair County Veterans list.
