In Memory of

Jack Randal Lintz

August 7, 1932 - July 25, 2023


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Randal Lintz, a beloved Husband, devoted father, grandfather, great grandfather, Army veteran, and cherished member of Our Lady of the Presentation Catholic Church. Jack left this world on July 25th , 2023, leaving behind a rich tapestry of memories that will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Born on August 7, 1932, in Tecumseh Nebraska, Jack was a man of strong character and principles. He lived a life guided by faith, kindness, compassion, and a genuine curiosity for everything in life. In 1957, after a 7 year courtship(mostly long distance), he joined hands in marriage with his beloved Dorothy Hessel, and together, they built a foundation of love and togetherness that endured throughout the years. Jack and Dorothy’s marriage of over 65 years was a shining example of true love and commitment. From the moment they married, their bond only grew stronger with each passing year. Their love was a beacon of light, guiding not only their family but also everyone fortunate enough to witness it.

As a father, Jack was a true pillar of strength and support to his six children: Mike (Kimber) Lintz, Peggy (Kevin) Christie, Paul (Linda) Lintz, Eileen (Kurt) Fratzke, Kathleen (Bill) Galloway, and David (Susan) Lintz. Furthermore, Jack was grandfather to 19 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. He instilled in them the values of family and faith and his dedication to their well-being was unwavering. Jack was most proud of the fact that his children all loved each other and always enjoyed being together.

Jack is preceded in death by his father(Elmer) and mother(Laura) , his sister Sally (Gary) Jones and grandson Tyler Fratzke. Jack is survived by his brother Tom (Connie) Lintz.

Professionally, Jack found success as a graduate of the University of Nebraska where he earned his degree in Pharmacy. Jack’s first job was as a practicing Pharmacist in Lincoln, Nebraska before moving to Kansas City and spending 33 years with Eli Lilly in pharmaceutical sales. Jack went by the CB radio handle “Medicine Man” which he used often to communicate with friends and colleagues during his professional career. He garnered the respect and admiration of colleagues and associates alike, leaving a lasting impact on the company.

Beyond his work, Jack embraced life with a zest for adventure. He enjoyed spending time with his wife and large family as well as traveling, volunteering, making/eating ice cream, and church – creating many cherished memories that will be treasured for generations to come.

In his free time, Jack pursued various hobbies and interests including flying drones, landscaping, volunteering, and always demonstrated his intelligence by his ability to fix or work on practically anything from cars to computers. Jack constantly demonstrated a passion for life that was contagious. Additionally, he touched the hearts of many in his neighborhood where he was commonly referred to as the “Mayor of Winterset Gardens”.

Jack leaves behind a legacy of love, compassion, and a life well-lived. Though he is no longer with us, his spirit will forever reside in the hearts of his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched.

Jack’s warm smile, sincerity, humor, and kindness brightened the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him. When asked recently about the key to life, Jack responded with the simple answer “choose to be happy”.

May his soul find eternal peace, and may we find comfort in the memories we shared with him. Jack will forever be remembered and dearly missed.

A memorial service to celebrate Jack’s life will be held on Friday, July 28th at Our Lady of the Presentation Catholic Church (Lee’s Summit, Mo) between 5-7pm(Rosary at 4:45). Funeral services will be held on Saturday at Our Lady of the Presentation Catholic Church, July 29th at 10am, followed by a family burial and then open reception at Holy Spirit Catholic Church (about 5 miles from Presentation Church) starting at 12pm. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Jack’s honor.

We lost a good friend and neighbor on Tuesday. Jack was so kind, thoughtful, a great friend, always willing to help anyone, and card playing partner. We will miss him so much. Jack and Dorothy were one of the first people to welcome us to the neighborhood. Our sincere condolences for the whole Lintz family in the days ahead.

I was sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I had the pleasure of spending a large part of my 22 year career with Lilly with Jack! I can’t add anything to the lovely tribute that you provided. That is the Jack Lintz that I knew and loved. I learned a lot from Jack as to how to do a respectable job with Lilly and also having fun doing it. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

Sorry Lintz family members for your loss of what surly was a great family man. Amazing to read about his life and seeing he fathered a wonderful family. Even though haven’t seen him in many years I remember how nice he was. He was blessed with great kids and wow you added a few grandchildren, wonderful. Sure you all gave him a full and joyous life. My heart and thoughts are with you all in your loss, and I bet he’s smiling about his life achievements and love.

I’m sending my condolences to the Lintz family. I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort Dorothy in the homegoing of her beloved Jack. May our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ be with you all.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. May he rest in peace.

Dorothy & family;
I am not good with words but what Jack meant to me as a friend I will never be able to put into words. Having you both as friends makes us the luckiest people people alive. I have known Jack since 1964. All these years of friendship will never be forgotten. We have always considered you as part of our family. I can only imagine how much you will miss him. I am so sorry we won’t be able to attend his services. I know you understand. Please stay in touch! Sincere sympathy goes out to your whole family.
All our love,

I am just now seeing this obituary for my friend, Jack Lintz. Jack was a cherished friend and colleague of mine for some 20 years. Our territories with Lilly were such that we would meet for lunch on many occasions. My deepest condolences to Dorothy and the family
