David R. Beil of Leawood, KS, entered into his eternal reward on March 13, 2024 peacefully at home after courageously fighting multiple myeloma cancer.  David was born on May 9, 1939 and was raised in Oak Park, Illinois, the youngest child of Larry Nathan and Florence Beil. It was at Oak Park High School that he met and fell in love with his loving and faithful wife of 63 years, Sina A. (Belmonte) Beil, whom he leaves behind along with their children William (Desiree) Beil, Lisa (Kevin) O’Connor, Beth Anne (David) Deutsch, John (Lindsey) Beil, and Nicholas (Ashley) Beil, 13 grandchildren Rachel (Phil) Hartwell, Hannah (Grant) Dalbey, Andrew (Ciara) Beil, Lillian (Blake) Edwards; Neil O’Connor; Henry, Marcus, and Audrey Deutsch; Zachary, Luke, and Logan Beil; and Jordan and Ava Beil; and 6 great-grandchildren (Rebecca, Johnathan & Lydia Hartwell; Charles Dalbey; and Amelia & Charlotte Beil).  He was preceded in death by his father, Larry Beil, his mother, Florence Beil, and his brothers and sisters, Robert Beil, Frank Beil, and Marilyn Beil.   

The product of a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, David, along with his wife Sina, taught their children to respect all faiths and, in turn, all people. He was a man of faith, impeccable integrity, honesty, and hard work and imparted these qualities to his children and grandchildren. He worked tirelessly for 53 years as a manufacturer sales representative in the furniture industry, was salesperson of the year at the age of 79, and retired at age 81, instead of age 80 as planned, after being asked to stay on to train his younger replacement. 

He was a voracious reader, a walking encyclopedia of both world history and sports trivia. He was a lover of Blues and Jazz; his car perpetually tuned to BB Kings Bluesville on SiriusXM, unless there was a Chiefs or Royals game on. He lived his life to the fullest, indulging in a daily breakfast pastry (McClains or Fluffy Fresh) and nightly cocktail (Old Fashioneds or Deep Eddys Vodka).  He was an eternal optimist and touched countless lives with his acts of kindness and words of encouragement. Most of all, his joy for life and sense of humor were infectious and endeared him to all. He often said that his proudest achievement were his five children, the spouses they chose; his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  David leaves a legacy of joy, laughter, and love with his family and countless friends.  He was famous for his zany nicknames that he bestowed upon his kids, grandkids, and friends.   Above all, he lived a life of love and in turn, was loved by many.   

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held for David on Monday, March 18, 2024 starting at 11:00am at St. Thomas More Parish, 11822 Holmes Rd., Kansas City, MO 64131.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Catholic Charities of MO, PO Box 104626, Jefferson City, MO 65110, or the charity of your choice.
