Obituary for William "Bill" Newkirk, Jr.
William “Bill” David Newkirk, Jr., age 59, died 6th of December 2020.

Bill was born January 18th, 1961 in Kansas City, MO to Tonna Rae Lovejoy and William David Newkirk, Sr. He was educated at Winnetonka High School and Metropolitan Community College. He ran a successful flooring company, MoKan Carpet, for 40 years. He spent his free time enjoying music by the fire pit with a cocktail in his hand. Sundays were spent tailgating and cheering on his Chiefs, and summers at the lake. He was big on tradition and purchased Lifesaver candy books for everyone at Christmas. Although there were many times, he was forgotten in a text message or spoken over in a sports conversation to the extent that he named himself the “Invisible Man”; to his loved ones he was never truly forgotten. To everyone that knew him he was the kindest, most giving man in the world.

He is survived by his loving wife Barb; his parents Tonna Lovejoy and William Newkirk, Sr.; his brothers Jeff and David Newkirk; his daughters Morgan Newkirk, Miritza Millsap, Marci Wettstein, and Melanie Porter; his grandchildren Breanna Gartin, Tyler Jay Millsap, Tarin Millsap, JaCee Millsap, Eva Wettstein, Janie and Jolie Porter; his great grandchildren Brighton Millsap, Maesyn, Madison and Cooper Gartin; Tyler Michael Millsap and all his beloved grandpups. He was preceded in death by his daughter Jamie Lee Newkirk and grandson Michael Millsap.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Rose Brooks Center at
