March 7, 1960 — December 3, 2021

David A. Mehrtens, 61, of Lenexa, KS, passed away Friday, December 3, 2021 at the University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City, KS following a two year battle with cancer.

David was born March 7, 1960 in Red Bud, IL, to Fred H. and Jessaline, nee Fritz, Mehrtens. He was raised on the family farm in New Hanover, IL, the youngest of five children.

In his teens, David met Robyn Wuertz, of Valmeyer, IL. They married on December 28, 1985, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Valmeyer. They then welcomed their daughter Ashley in 1988, daughter Brooke in 1990, and daughter Kirsten in 1997.

David has worked in the construction equipment industry for over 40 years, moving his family to the Kansas City area in 2001. In 2017, David accepted his dream job with Kirby-Smith Machinery in Oklahoma City, OK as Director of Remarketing & Used Equipment and continued his passion of selling used machinery.

David loved being a father to his three daughters and attended every sporting game and school event as they grew up. He also adored his grandchildren and loved spending time with them. David made everyone feel like family and never missed an opportunity to joke around. His positivity was infectious.
