Will was born on August 26, 1985 in Cortez, Colorado, to Grant and Tammy Lindsay. He graduated from Montezuma Cortez High School in 2004 and joined the Army immediately after high school, enlisting on July 7, 2004. He married the love of his life, Sarah Unger, in 2010 and together they had four daughters. Sarah and their daughters were the center of Will's world. He was a devoted husband, a dedicated father, and a generous, trustworthy and reliable friend. A true Colorado native, Will loved to hunt and fish, and he liked to work with his hands, building projects around his house and finishing their basement all by himself. When he wasn't busy with work, family, or his other hobbies, he shamed friends on the golf course with his mid-70s game.
