Herbert Lintz, 79, Bendix Radio supervisor

October 11, 2004

Herbert Lintz, a former supervisor at Bendix Radio, died of pancreatic cancer Oct. 4 at Mercy Medical Center. He was 79 and had lived in Phoenix for most of his life before moving to Eustis, Fla., in 1990.

Mr. Lintz was born in Phoenix and attended Towson High School, graduating in 1942. He then joined the Army and was assigned to the 11th Airborne Division. He served in Japan and the Philippines, where he was wounded and received a Purple Heart.

After being honorably discharged in 1946, Mr. Lintz returned to the Baltimore area and eventually began working two jobs. He was a line supervisor at Bendix Radio, retiring in 1971. He also worked for the U.S. Postal Service as a mail carrier and retired in 1990.

When he worked two jobs "he never got a lot of sleep," said his wife, the former Marian Leone. "If he slept more than four hours, he said he would get sore."

After retiring from the postal service, Mr. Lintz moved to Eustis, where he was involved in the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Memorial services have been held.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Lintz is survived by daughters Michelle Fitzsimmons of Newport, Ore., and Cynthia Reynolds of Woodlawn; a son, Ronald Lintz of Largo, Fla.; and five grandchildren.
