Obituary

 

Kevin Donald Massey, 55, of Blue Springs, Mo. Passed away on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 unexpectedly while on vacation with his wife Kim Massey of 27 years in Colorado. Kevin was born July 9, 1964 to James and Margaret Massey in Dubuque, Iowa. He was preceded in death by his grandmother Ida Muenster. He is survived by his wife Kim Massey, sons Zach (25) and Jared (21) Massey of the home.

Kevin graduated from Hempstead high school in Dubuque, Iowa. Kevin worked at Hy-Vee while in high school, and continued working for Hy-Vee and most recently worked at the Hy-Vee store in Blue Springs as the bakery manager. Kevin didn’t know a stranger, and was very well liked by his colleagues and customers.

Kevin was exceptionally handy and could do just about anything. He was never too busy to help his family, his sons, their friends, and anyone who needed help at the drop of a hat. Kevin loved people and was always joking around living life to the fullest.

Kevin was so happy the day he and his wife Kim purchased motorcycles. Kevin had a love for riding his motorcycle. Kevin and his wife took many unplanned daytrips together to ride their motorcycles, really enjoying the open road. Kevin had many different hobbies, and also enjoyed time at the shooting range.

Kevin was a wonderful husband, father, and friend to everyone. He will be greatly missed.

Kevin was a great guy, I was very shocked at the news of his death. I’ve known Kevin since ’96. He has always been a very up beat person. We talked back-and-forth about bakery business and he always had a smile.
I recently saw Kevin last Spring, when he got several of us “old timers” together; Norm, John, Kenny and I. We had a great time. Kevin truly cared about other people, and he will be dearly missed by Rick Whyle.

To my sweet niece!!! Aunt Jeannie’s heart breaks for you!!! The pain I truly know is unbearable to stand!!! I do know you have an awesome mom there to help you and guide you hon!!! My thoughts and prayers go out for you, your sons, your family and Kevin’s family!!! May GOD be with you all and give you all comfort!!!! Aunt Jeannie loves you dearly!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤

I just find it hard to believe, life‘s too short. Kevin worked for us at Dubuque Save U More which later became Hy-Vee. He was always reliable and hard-working. I am sure he will be greatly missed. Prayers to the entire Massey family God bless.

The news of Kevin’s passing came as a shock. I always enjoyed our visits, his sense of humor, and his down-to-earth nature. He had a youthful spirit, never taking himself too seriously and appreciating the many thrills that life had to offer. My heart goes out to Jared, Zach, Kim, and the rest of Kevin’s family—may love and support shower upon you all as you move through this time of grief and healing. God bless…

Kevin did so much to help me w my schedule 24 years ago when I needed to work around a very sick child. I worked with him at hy-vee and Hockenberg, I guess for more years than I thought. I’m grateful to have known him and shared so many laughs. Condolences to you all on your loss of a dear loved one.
