Rodney Alan Weary, 69, Gardner, Kansas passed away Thursday, July 9, 2020 at his home. Cremation with inurnment at a future date in Richmond Memory Gardens, Richmond, Missouri. Condolences may be left at Arrangements: Bruce Funeral Home, 106 S. Center, Gardner, Kansas 66030 (913) 856-7111.

Rodney was born on October 27, 1950 in Henrietta, Missouri to Franklin Grimm and Sarah Jane (Denning) Weary III. He was raised in Richmond, Missouri and graduated from Richmond High School in 1968. After graduation, Rodney attended University of Missouri-Columbia for two and a half years, majoring in business and psychology. He quit college to start pursuing his business career. Keeping in line with the Weary family history of owning and operating businesses in the entertainment industry, including his grandfather’s silent picture house and his parent’s drive-in movie theater, he successfully built businesses in the cable TV and paging industries before turning to satellite TV. His biggest success was building one of the country’s largest DirectTV satellite television distributors, Golden Sky Systems, which he owned and operated as CEO. He ultimately sold his company to a competitor and was regarded as one of the most outstanding entrepreneurs in Kansas City. Outside of his business career, Rodney was also a pilot and loved to fly. He enjoyed traveling and spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks with his family and friends. In his retirement, he enjoyed simply spending time with family and especially enjoyed gardening with his daughter, Jade.

Rodney was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his children: Franklin Grimm Weary V, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Jade Weary, Gardner, Kansas, and Tristan Alan Weary, Kissimmee, Florida; brother Franklin Grimm Weary IV, Houston, Texas and grandchild Marin Christopher.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Rodney for a number of years in the 1990's. He had a knack for spotting new ideas, and was really gifted in working with all types of people. Rodney was devoted to his family. I am very sorry to be sending my condolences so long after his passing and service. My thoughts and prayers to Frank, Jade and Tristan.

It was great to speak to Rodney the past few years when I visited uncle F.G., and Rodney chimed in with his own stories from the past and our family history. I'm sad I didn't get to speak to him more about the past.
