David E. Nunez of Gardner Kansas passed away on Tuesday January 12th, 2021 in Overland Park Kansas at the age of 83.

In 1937, David was the first son born to his parents David Nunez Quintero and Ana Maria Elizondo de Nunez (Anita). Along with three sisters, David was educated in Monterey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He attained a Bachelor’s degree in pre medicine from the Universidad de Nuevo Leon. By the age of 20 David moved to the United States and enlisted in the U.S. Army where he served 2 years in active duty and 4 years in the reserves. After his active military service, David moved to Kansas City, MO, married, and he is the father of four children. David loved his work as a financial services wholesaler where he traveled throughout the country in this career. He was gifted with a creative mind which he used to develop a new distribution center for the financial products he was wholesaling. At the time of his death David was married to his best friend and long-time companion, Barbara Johnston. David and Barbara were married in December 2018.

A life long learner, David was always looking for more education. Over the years he took classes at Rockhurst College and Johnson County Community College. He loved reading and he had hundreds of books in his home and hundreds more in his eBook (history was always a favorite). He surrounded himself with music – loved many types from classical to pop, rock and jazz. Most importantly, he loved the Lord, and he loved his family and friends whom he always remembered and requested blessings for in his daily prayers.

David is survived by his wife Barbara, his children, Jeff Nunez (Angela), John Nunez (Anna Marie), Jennifer Eklund (Steve) and JoAnna Swinney (Dan); his grandchildren, DJ Nunez, Meaghan Payne, Amy Gunther, Alexis Nunez, Christian Nunez, Sophie Nunez, Isabella Nunez, Madison Eklund, Mackenzie Eklund, Reid Eklund, Emma Swinney, Oliva Swinney, Sally Swinney, Elliot Swinney and Sean Swinney: his four great grandchildren; and his two sisters, Teresa Nunez Elizondo and Rosa Nunez Vilchis.
