Obituary For James "Jimmy" Richard Larkey

James "Jimmy" Richard Larkey, 47, of Sedalia, MO, passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2024, at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, KS. He was born on June 14, 1976, in Butler, MO, the son of Grover William Snow Jr., of Edwards, MO, and Marilyn Louise (Webb) Shafer, of Holden, MO.

As a child, Jimmy grew up in foster care. He was placed into multiple different homes. He was later adopted by Elmer and Judy Larkey. After turning eighteen, he reunited with his biological parents and family. Not knowing how to deal with life's traumas, Jimmy turned to the "party" lifestyle for comfort. During this time, he became addicted to drugs and alcohol. Sixteen years ago, he surrendered his life to God and became sober. Since then, he has dedicated his life to helping lead others with addiction to the Lord.

Jimmy worked as a delivery truck driver for A&S Express in Sedalia. He was a member of Liberty Life Center, Sedalia. Jimmy was very active in his church. He was very involved in the Celebrate Recovery program and became involved in prison ministry at Algoa and Tipton Correctional Centers. Jimmy was part of the DML News Group, connecting with people worldwide to help change political policies.

Jimmy was an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan and enjoyed watching NASCAR. Jimmy loved serving his community, church, family, and his Lord. Most of all, Jimmy was a loving father, brother, and PaPa.

In addition to his parents, Jimmy is survived by a daughter, Whitney Jones (Kyler) of Sedalia; five sisters, Anna Miller (David) of Sedalia, Elizabeth Friend (Lonnie) of Sedalia, Michelle Hall (James) of Sedalia, Jeannie Bain of Ozark, MO, and Heather Bryant of Edwards, MO; two brothers, Jeffrey Bain (Jaime) of Branson, MO, and Louis Heinking of Lake City, FL; three grandchildren, Kya, Kayce, and Kinsley; and numerous other loved ones.

Jimmy was preceded in death by a nephew, Caleb Lewis.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, April 1, 2024, at Liberty Life Center, Sedalia, with Pastor Gary Smith officiating.
