Lincoln, Lennis L.

August 13, 1957 — October 8, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Lennis Leon Lincoln, Liberty, MO, announce his passing on October 8, 2021 at age 64 after several bouts with esophageal cancer. He passed peacefully at home surrounded by the love of those that have visited, called and messaged him over the past several weeks and months.

Lennis will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 22 years, Jill; step-son Patrick McDowell; father Herschel (Penny); sisters Sharon Lincoln and Lori Murphy; many nieces and nephews and countless other friends and relatives that will forever cherish the memories of his life well-lived. Lennis was preceded in death by his mother Phyllis.

A 1975 graduate of Liberty High School, Lennis went on to become a professional house framer and carpenter, having his hand in the construction of many homes and projects in the area and becoming known as “Mister Fix-it” to many of his friends and family. Lennis enjoyed playing softball for many years with his closest friends on the Raleigh Hills All-Stars team, part of the Sunday Night League at Liberty’s City Park. He was often seen driving around town in his pickup truck with his four-legged friend hanging out the window. Lennis will be remembered as an incredible husband, step-father, and friend who made a lasting impact on those in his life and the community he lived in.

A celebration of Lennis’ life will be held at 2pm on Sunday, October 24th at Heritage Hall, 117 W. Kansas St in Liberty. Casual dress is appropriate and masks will be required. The Chiefs game will be made available just as Lennis would have wanted. Attendees will be given the opportunity to share their favorite memories and are encouraged to enjoy a celebratory beer or beverage following the ceremony at home to honor his life.

Special thanks to Crossroads Hospice Care for their exceptional care and support during Lennis’ final days.

Lennis was always such a welcomed sight when he would pop by to say hi to my sister Dawn whenever I was visiting in Liberty. Lennis always had a smile and such a warm greeting for me. We will very much miss his joyful spirit and great sense of humor. My condolences to Jill and the family. We have lost one of the truly good guys. But we will never forget him.
