Obituary

Richard R. “Rick” Weeda, 60, of Lee’s Summit, MO passed away suddenly on August 6, 2020 from a heart attack. Visitation will be held from 6-8 PM on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at Langsford Funeral Home, 115 SW 3rd St, Lee’s Summit, MO 64063.

Formal message and graveside services will be held at 11:00 AM on August 12, 2020, at Floral Hills East Cemetery, 25203 E US Hwy 50, Lee’s Summit, MO 64086.

Rick was born on August 7, 1959 in Kansas City, MO to Ray and Karen Weeda. He lived his entire life in Lee’s Summit, MO and graduated from Lee’s Summit High School in 1977. He attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where he graduated in 1982 with a degree in finance. He worked 45 years in the banking industry starting at the age of 16 and continuing through August 5th of this year. The day he passed was his retirement date.

Rick married the love of his life, Susan, on November 2, 1991. They were inseparable until the end. Rick enjoyed golfing, hiking, and watching Chiefs football, always with Susan by his side. Rick and Susan went to Las Vegas more times than they could count. Rick’s pride and joy were his wife and his two daughters, Lisa and Jamie. He was their protector, biggest fan, and main source of entertainment. He humbly bragged on his girls whenever given the opportunity.

Rick was known for his kindness and calm nature, but especially for his quick wit and humor followed by that special grin, which will be sorely missed.

Rick was preceded in death by his mother, Karen Weeda; paternal grandparents, Irvin and Opal Weeda; and maternal grandparents, Jack and Trula Steen.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Susan Weeda; his daughters Lisa Morris (Todd) and Jamie Weeda; his father, Ray Weeda; his brother, Randy Weeda (Diane); his sister, Kim Weddle (Tim); as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends who adored him.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 7272 Greenville Avenue; Dallas, TX 75231 or The Michael J. Fox Foundation, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741.

Rick will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all those who knew him. Someday we will understand why this happened.

Condolences

I am deeply sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. May God Bless you all.

Rick was the loan officer when I started working for Coffman Associates and I remember him well. He was a nice guy to work with and his passing is much too young. My condolences. Steven gladstone.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Rick’s passing. Rick was the best banker we ever worked with for our company. Always responsive and interested in what we were doing, He went to bat for us with the loan committee on a regular basis. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this most difficult time..

Words cannot possibly express my shock and deep sadness for Rick’s unexpected passing. It was my privilege to work with him for several of his banking years, and I believe a finer, kinder man would be hard to find. Cherish your many wonderful memories.

I’m truly grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with Rick and become his friend over the last several years. His cheerful attitude, kindness, and good humor will not be forgotten. I am deeply sorry for your family’s loss. Sending love and hugs to you all during this difficult time.

We are friends of Kim and wanted to extend our heartfelt sympathies for your family.

Rick was my loan officer whom I consider a friend. We’ve known each other for over twenty years. I was shocked on learning of his passing, like the rest of you. I will cherish the long talk we had on Wednesday, Aug 5th. I know he was a good man, always sharing about his daughters and wife. I miss him. My prayers are w his loved ones.

Susan and girls. I’m so deeply sorry for this unbelievable tragedy. No words will ever be enough. Sending your family prayers of strength.

We are still stunned. Our sincere condolences, we will always think of you in Vegas.

Go ahead and cry. There is nothing wrong with shedding tears over the passing of a loved one, but Scripture says we are not to sorrow like those without hope. “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord” (Revelation 14:13). Those who have gone to Heaven in Christ are a lot happier than we are; they wouldn’t come back for anything in the world.
Rick would tell us,
“ Some day you will read or hear that Rick Weeda is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”

Hugs and prayers from our family to yours.
Dan & Dorothy Murfin

Susan, Jamie, Lisa and Todd,

We are so very sorry to hear of your loss and have been keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Love and Sympathy,
Mike and Vicki Coy

We have enjoyed being next door neighbors to both Rick and Susan! We will dearly miss Rick’s humble, kind, soft-spoken nature. I still remember when our kids did a lemonade stand outside our home a few years ago. They were trying to “earn money for Christmas to give each other gifts”. He came by and bought a lemonade, and paid them like $20 for the lemonade and told the kids they could keep the change! The kids were flabbergasted! 🙂 They couldn’t believe it! It was so kind of him. He made their day, and probably their Christmas! He was always a good, kind, generous neighbor. I am grateful that the day before his passing, I got to make eye-contact with him and give a smile and wave, as he pulled into the garage. I’ll remember his smile and kind ways! We are praying for you all. Our hearts go out to you!

Very saddened to learn of Rick’s passing. As a Class of 76 member with Randy and Diane, I wish to convey our condolences to all of the Weeda family. God be with you.

Susan, Lisa & Jamie,
So sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. He was such a nice guy and we always enjoyed talking with him at the softball fields. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
