John Rains, 25, of Independence, MO passed away suddenly on Monday, April 1, 2019. A visitation will be held from 4-7pm on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at Speaks Suburban Chapel 18020 E. 39th St, Independence, MO, 64055. A service will be held on Monday, April 8th at 10am at the chapel.

John was born on February 18, 1994 in Blue Springs, MO to Michael and Tonya (Wiley) Rains. He attended Truman High School then went on to work for the family company, Action Alarm Inc., in Independence. He liked anything on wheels and couldn’t help himself from upgrading his cars. From stereos, to painting them, and changing the exhaust – if it had wheels or a motor, he had to get his hands on it. He enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, and shooting guns. John loved his family. He had hoped to one day take over the family business. Most of all he loved his daughter and his niece.

He will always be remembered by his daughter Lillian Lee Rains of Independence, MO; his parents Mike and Tonya Rains of Independence, MO; sister Jessica Kelly and husband Kevin of Independence, MO; niece Sophie Diane Due of Independence, MO; grandparents Danny Rains and wife Sharon of Independence, MO, Candace Smith and husband Paul of Green Valley, Arizona, and William Smith of Independence, MO; best friend Tyler Richardson; Kortni Milton, and Angel Williams; his dog Jack; plus several other extended family members and many, many friends.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents.

Dan & Sharon I wanted to express our sympathy to you and the family. We will be praying for you. Take Care.

My heart was caught when I read you lost your son Johnathan and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have him in your life once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔

Love, Family. I have no words that can speak to the overwhelming loss of Johnathon. Mike, Tonya, I can only say that I love you very much. Love, Family. Two words that keep coming to me. I am so very, very sorry for your loss.

A young man with a big heart. I always enjoyed giving you a hard time and seeing you look at George and grin.
We appreciated the times you came down to our lake house to help us with our projects and George enjoyed the times you worked for him at his shop or just came by to visit.
You were an AWESOME father and it showed in the smile on your face seeing you with your daughter.
It breaks my heart knowing she will grow up without you by her side. Rest in peace, you will be missed.
To the parents and family you are in our prayers.
George and Barbara Lafal
