Jack Dean Munkers

July 24, 1941 — September 2, 2023

Independence/Florida

 

Jack Dean Munkers passed away at his home in Independence, Missouri on September 2, 2023. He turned 82 on his birthday on July 24th. Jack was born in Kansas City, Missouri to Everett and Mary Louise Munkers. He thanked the Lord every night for another day.
 
Jack attended Father Flanagan’s boys town in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 9. He was very involved in every sport he could play and earned a college scholarship for football. That only lasted one quarter and then he decided to come home and start his family. Even as an adult, his ability to play racquetball, softball and snow skiing, were a big part of his life. Jack had a career as a four-color pressman lithographer at Clark printing company for over 40 years. He took pride in making sure everything he printed was just right. After jack retired, he enjoyed doing projects around the house and would always say “not bad for a pressman”. He took numerous road trips to countless places he wanted to see. Some of his favorite trips included his sister, Sharon Perrine and some of his grandchildren. After enough of Missouri’s cold winters, Jack decided to Snowbird to Winterhaven, Florida, where he spent six months of the year for the last 17 years. He met many new people from different states that he called friends. He enjoyed the warm weather and many wonderful sunsets. Jack leaves behind lots of wonderful memories for his family members. The family recalls the “no radio on method”. 
 
Jack is survived by his two daughters, Pamela Green (Jim), and Janet Norton (Kip); grandchildren, Sadie Wamsley (Luke), James Green (Melaine), Nicole Yoakum (Dustin), Cody Munkers (Katie), and Pyper Munkers (Brandon); great-grandchildren, Landon , Weston, Kahli, Kaden, Emma, Wyatt, Ry, Jax, Skylar, Ryder and Elizebeth and nephews, Chris, Sean and Michael Perrine. He is preceded in death by his son, David Munkers; sister, Sharon Perrine; brother-in-law, Jerry Perrine and his ex-wife, Sandra Sewell Munkers. 
 
Because he was a simple man he has requested no service, and for his family to take his ashes to Colorado and spread them on the mountain side.
