Levingston, Wesley H.

September 5, 1925 — June 25, 2022

Wesley Henry Levingston, 96, passed away June 25, 2022.  Wesley was born on September 5th, 1925 in Zelma, Mo. He joined our lord and savior in Heaven on June 25th, 2022. He was proceeded in death by his first wife Maxine Jewell, His parents Andrew and Myrtle Levingston, His brother Willard Levingston, His sister Fern Hinkle, and his daughter Nancy Wilson. His survivors include his wife Janet Levingston, daughters Penny Nystrom, Sheri Plummer, 12 grand children, 24 great grand children and 2 great great grand children.

Wesley was born hearing but became deaf at the age of 10 due to an illness. He attended Missouri School for the Deaf where he graduated in 1946. There he met his first wife Maxine Jewell Parsons. They were married on Feb 14th 1948. Together they had three daughters that they raised in Independence Mo. in a home he built from the ground up with his two hands. Wesley and Maxine were married for 41 years until her death in 1988.

In May of 1994 Wesley met Janet Reynolds at a deaf camping event in Noel Mo. After a few months of courting they were married on September 10th 1994. They were married for 28 years when he passed. Their union brought him 2 wonderful step children Cindy Volk and Carl Ellerman Jr.

Wesley was a jack of all trades and worked several jobs during his lifetime. He worked as a Tailor, Welder, Woodworker, Painter, Upholsterer, and a lineman at General Mototrs where he retired.

Since Wesley and Janet had a love for camping and adventures they spent alot of their retired years together traveling the U.S. in their RV. One of their favorite destinations was Hawaii. There Wesley found a fondness for wearing Hawaiian shirts and wore them quite often to family events. We thought it fitting that we bury him in a Hawaiian shirt.

One thing stands out most about Wesley and that was his deep love for God. He never missed an opportunity to preach the gospel. He would preach for hours if we let him. He would talk often of heaven and how he couldnt wait to go. It was his final vacation destination. We will miss him so much but rejoice that his soul has finally met Jesus.

Visitation will be 12PM, with services to follow at 1PM, Friday, July 1 at Park Lawn Funeral Home, 8251 Hillcrest Rd., Kansas City, Missouri; burial in Memorial Park Cemetery.
