James Kevin Sherry (known as Kevin), 63, of Grain Valley, Missouri, passed away on July 8, 2024.

Kevin was born on October 10, 1960, to Michael and Mary Sherry in Harrisonville Missouri.  After Kevin graduated from Lone Jack High School in 1979, he worked for his father in construction, later moving into several similar fields including property maintenance, working for Jackson County, and working for the city of Lee’s Summit.

In 1981, Kevin started a family with his first wife and went on to have three children, Maria Stanley, Jessica Mathews, and Kevin Sherry II.

Kevin enjoyed being active over the years and especially enjoyed playing golf, basketball, and volleyball. He loved music, nature, and having a good time with friends.

In 2011 he met his wife Donna Michelle Sherry (known as Michelle) and they were married on August 17, 2013.

In 2023, Kevin retired from Blue River Maintenance as a Field Supervisor and spent time at home enjoying nature off his back porch with his wife Michelle and cheering on the Chiefs and Royals from his favorite seat in the house.

Kevin was predeceased by his parents, Michael and Mary Sherry, his older brother, Michael Sherry, and his niece, Mary Gordon.

He is survived by his wife Michelle Sherry, and her daughter Megan Wallace and her husband Tom, his first wife Dolores Sherry and their three children, Maria Stanley and her husband Wil, Jessica Mathews and her husband Mitchell, Kevin Sherry II and his wife Elizabeth, his brothers Greg, Dennis and Chris and his sisters Katie (and her husband Tim) and Trisha, his sister-in-law Lisa and her partner Barbara, his brother-in-law Jason, and his 10 grandchildren Kennedy, Anthony, Duncan, Jake, Greyson, Kylie, Emma, Silas, Everett and Ellie.

I am so sorry for your loss. This world was a better place with Kevin it, I was blessed to have known Kevin as a great friend, we played a lot of sports together, basketball, softball, and we fished together. Kevin also worked with me at Unity. I will miss this friend and I will keep him in my heart and fond memories forever.

Most people in the family know that Kevin came to us on my 6th birthday, my birthday present.. which I think is pretty cool. We called him Kevin from Heven. In life he was not just my brother but also we were the best of friends. We worked hard and we played hard. I will miss with every breath!

So sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing. Spent a lot of time with him at school and on the basketball court. Rest well old friend.

Kevin was a great person and a very good friend I worked with Kevin at ls water debt you will be missed my friend rip brother

I worked with Kevin at Lee’s Summit Water Utilities from October 2005. I had a lot of respect and admiration for him. I knew him to be honest and forthright. A great guy and really a pleasure to work alongside. Sometimes he could be a little blunt, not unlike myself. That’s ok, a feller knew where he stood with Kevin and I appreciated him. I really missed working with him the past few years. I’m sorry for your loss, but I do believe Kevin is with our Lord Jesus in paradise.

I am so sorry for your loss. Kevin and I went to school together in Lone Jack and worked together at Lee’s Summit Water Utilities his entire career. He was very respected by his coworkers and an outstanding worker himself. He will be missed by all that knew him
