David Lee Vos

April 7, 1942 — September 22, 2023

Kansas City

David Lee Vos, 81, of Kansas City, Missouri, peacefully passed away on Friday, September 22, 2023.  He was born on April 7, 1942, in Lebanon, Indiana, to the late Richard Vos and Mary Jane McBane Keim.

David led a life of dedication and commitment.  His professional journey spanned two decades in the restaurant business and fifteen years in the parking management industry, taking him from Indiana to Illinois, Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and finally to Missouri.  His retirement in 2015 marked the culmination of 17 years of service as the Facilities Manager at Antioch Bible Baptist Church.  David was a 1960 graduate of New Ross High School in New Ross, IN.

In the summer of 1974, David’s life underwent a profound transformation when he placed his faith in Jesus Christ.  His spiritual journey led him to serve his churches in various capacities, from Sunday School Teacher to AWANA Club Leader and door greeter.  However, his most enduring legacy lies in his fervent desire to introduce others to a personal relationship with the Savior.  David’s passion for sharing the Gospel leaves behind a multitude of believers and a legacy of unwavering faith for his cherished family and friends.

David is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Hester Brandenburg Vos, his daughter, Tamara (James) Collingsworth; and his son, David Andrew (Tammy) Vos.  He is also remembered fondly by his grandchildren:  James Collingsworth III, Annette (Scott) Myers, Lauren (Kyle) Reedy, Crysta (Austin) Harris, Sarah (Anthony) Cusumano, and Andrea Vos.  His great-grandchildren, including James “JC” IV, Lucas, Alexa, Levi, Noah, Emma, Faye, Charles, and an anticipated baby girl, held a special place in his heart.  David is also survived by his brothers, Phillip Elliott and Robert Elliott.
