Gary Wyatt, 68, of Independence, Missouri passed away December 26, 2019 following a battle with cancer. A visitation will be held on Sunday, Dec. 29 from 5-7pm at Carson-Speaks Chapel. A funeral will take place on Monday, Dec. 30, at 11 at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Independence. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the funeral. Gary is preceded in death by his father, Keith Wyatt; his step-father, Warren “Pete” Hollopeter; and his son, Nick Wyatt; and widowed by Carolyn Wyatt.

Gary was born on July 3, 1951 to Keith Wyatt and Betty (Jobe) Hollopeter in Kansas City. He was a life-long resident of the metro area and graduated from Van Horn High School in 1969. Gary was a 25-year veteran bus operator for the city of Kansas City. He enjoyed camping, cheering on the Royals and Chiefs, watching NASCAR, and spending time and traveling with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Gary loved riding his BMW motorcycle and attended numerous rallies over his life. He could often be found on a hot summer afternoon on the back porch watching the Royals.

Gary’s memory will be kept alive by his mother Betty of Independence; wife of 32 years, Dolores (Gripka) of the home; daughter Christy (Sang) Burton of Independence; son Andy (Monica) Wyatt of Lee’s Summit; son Frank Wyatt of Independence; grandchildren Charley and Garrett Burton; brother Ryan (Corina) Wyatt of Independence; step-brother Mike of San Antonio, Texas; step-children from a previous marriage Dennis, Chris, Christine, and Jason as well as a large group of Gripka in-laws. Gary will also be remembered by many cousins, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and friends.

Gary will be greatly missed, but we are grateful to have had a chance to love and be loved by him. Online condolences at (Arr: Carson-Speaks 816-252-7900) (Arr: Carson-Speaks Chapel 816-252-7900)
