Tuesday, March 29, 2022

With great sadness, we announce that Roger Lynn McKlintic, age 64, of Nevada, Missouri passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at Research Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., while bravely battling COVID.

Roger was born on June 4, 1957, in Neosho, Mo. He is one of four children born to the late Willard Evans McKlintic and Esther Pearl (Bennett) McKlintic. He grew up in Neosho, Mo., and graduated with the Neosho High School Class of 1975 and then attended Missouri Southern State University.

After working for Consumer's Market for several years, he moved to Nevada, Mo., as a sales rep for Nabisco Food Company, he then worked at 3M until his retirement, but his main passion was always his children and his grandchildren.

Roger will be sadly missed by his children and grandchildren he shared with his friend and former spouse, Frankie McKlintic. He is survived by his son, Taylor Evans McKlintic and wife, Sara, of El Dorado Springs, Mo.; grandchildren, Taylie, Maddox, and Beckett; his daughter, Tiereney Beth McKlintic Spratt and husband, Tyler, of Philadelphia, Mo.; grandchildren, Cutter and Catcher. Roger is lovingly remembered by three sisters, Glenda Kay Lasswell, of Joplin, Mo., Wanda Jaimez and husband, Alfredo, of Carl Junction, Mo., and Kim McKlintic of Springfield, Mo.

In the words of Roger, "I'm a simple man; just give me a cold beer, a cigar, and a lawn chair". So, it is no surprise that Roger requested a private family service, and his children plan to honor his request. They will have a private celebration to honor Roger's life. The family wants to thank everyone for their support and prayers during this difficult time.

Cremation services are under the special care of Ferry Funeral Home, Nevada, Mo.
