Dr. Lingenfelter was an incredible person who will be sincerely missed by fellow board members and members of the Arizona Geriatrics Society. A long-time member and board member of AzGS, he helped guide and build the organization and constantly demonstrated his love for geriatrics. It will be impossible for anyone to fill his shoes!

His AzGS legacy is the John G. Lingenfelter Geriatric Research Scholarship he established in 2007. His memory will live on in the memory of AzGS members and his scholarship recipients. He would have really loved our upcoming Fall Symposium and we will all miss re-connecting with him this year.

The Az Geriatrics Society extends their heartfelt sympathy to his family and all those he worked with over the years. We have all been blessed by his involvement in our lives.


The Arizona Geriatrics Society Board of Directors, staff and members.

Dr Lingenfelter played such an important role in our lives and we have benefitted greatly from his kindness, generosity, and tenacious service to the people and community of kingman. From his role as our doctor, in the founding of the dolphins swim team, school board, and bulldog boosters, our lives were directly affected by him. Well done good and faithful servant!

I had the pleasure of working for Dr. Lingenfelter from 1999 in Visalia Ca when I managed the Visalia Branch of Stockman's bank until it was sold. My sincere condolences to the family. Diana, his wife, was a beautiful person as well. I am sure the stars in Kingman will be brighter at night as Doctor is welcomed home.
