Francis Lindholm Obituary

Francis Craig Lindholm, age 78, passed away on January 18, 2024, in Coral Springs, Florida. He was born on January 20, 1945, in Queens, New York, to the late Francis Ian Lindholm and Edith Jacqueline Lindholm.

Craig, a mild-mannered man with a mind that would not stop creating and was always challenging others to think outside the box, was a great conversationalist and could talk about anything with background knowledge to support his thinking. He loved spending time with his family and adored his granddaughters, Anastasia and Athena Morales Lindholm, more than anything else.

Craig was a licensed architect for 42 years, with a career spanning three states: New York, North Carolina, and Florida. He was highly influenced by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and often emulated his designs in his own architectural style. Notably, Craig redesigned the library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during the early 1980s. Throughout his career, he designed numerous residential and commercial projects.

Craig was an avid collector of memorabilia, coins, comics, and books. He loved to spend his time with family and enjoyed traveling.  At an early age, he showed great talent in art and throughout his formative years.  He attended Music and Art High School in New York and graduated from Pratt University in Brooklyn, NY with a bachelor’s degree in architecture. He was a dynamic artist and in his later years his passion grew for abstract drawings, pastel portraits of people and animals, and creating multi-media works of art.

In addition to his professional endeavors, Craig proudly served in the Army Corps of Engineers during the Vietnam War from 1967 to 1969. His dedication and commitment to his country were commendable.

While he did not commit to a specific religious faith, as a young child he was a member of the Lutheran Church.  As an adult he supported his wife and children with their faith as members of St. Mark Greek Orthodox Church.

Craig is survived by his loving wife, Joanne, his two daughters, Alexis Lindholm (Jermaine Nixon) and Alexandra Lindholm (Ernesto Giovanni Morales), his granddaughters Anastasia and Athena and his brother Ralph Lindholm (Karen) and several in-laws, nieces, and nephews.
