David D. Handy, 62, of Blue Springs, MO, passed away surrounded by his loving family on December 24, 2014. He was born to Albert and Mabel (Kipp) Handy on October 19, 1952 in Independence, MO.
David was an active member of the Grain Valley RLDS church as was ordained as a Deacon of RLDS on December 7, 1975. His love for the Lord was strong and he loved to share the love of Jesus with others. He never met a person “unworthy” of sharing the love of Jesus with. His generosity and compassion for others was one of his most admirable traits. David would help anyone in need without a second thought and never once asked for anything in return. After his family, David’s second love was his beloved garden. David was the owner and operator of David Handy construction. He was an Eagle Scout and brave in the Tribe of Mic O Say.
Survivors include wife, Laura of Blue Springs, MO; daughter, Adriane Howe of Blue Springs, MO; sons, Christopher Handy and wife Aimee of Grain Valley, MO, Aaron Handy of Blue Springs, MO; 10 grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews.
