Vincent "Vince" Stonestreet

Kansas City - Vincent "Vince" Stonestreet, 80, passed away on November 17, 2021, his birthday, at his home in Kansas City, KS surrounded by his family and his beloved cat, Socks.

Vince was born in Kansas City, KS and was a lifelong resident of Wyandotte County. With only a high school diploma (Wyandotte High School) he was a successful businessman and a wiz with numbers. Vince worked for Railway Express, Wonder Bread, Andrew Jergens Company and eventually was the owner of L&V Outlet in Leavenworth, KS for 35 years. He was funny, fiery and never the fool. He was generous with his family and quietly generous to many others. He loved his wife Jamey and she remained his number one priority up until his death. He always had his kids' back, no matter the circumstance. To meet Vince was to know Vince. He lived his life with a true compass of right and wrong and treated people how they treated him. He instilled a strong work ethic in all of those around him and worked hard for everything he had. He loved cows and pigs and was an avid supporter of 4-H. He was a collector of many things, but most notably of Native American art, a passion inspired by his uncle, the late Father Niles Kraft.

Vince is preceded in death by his father and mother, Leonard and Louise Stonestreet.

Vince is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Jamey; children, Paul (Donna) Stonestreet, Mauria Stonestreet, and Eric (Lindsay) Stonestreet; grandchildren Morgan, Garrett, and Brooke; brothers, Leonard (Delores), Paul (Jan), his favorite sisters, Martha and Jeanie; and his caretaker and right hand man, Darcy.

And shocker, in true Vince fashion, he didn't want any services and let's be honest, he'd be irate we even put this in the paper. Rather, his hope was you'd gather family, put a bouquet of flowers on the table and share stories about your friendship with him.

Vince was so appreciative of the doctors, nurses and caregivers that took care of him the last four years. In lieu of flowers, his family ask that donations be made in Vince's name to University of Kansas Health System Cancer Care Center or Kansas City Hospice.
