Jeffrey J. Shore, Sr.
Nov 16,1947---May 05,2017

Jeffrey J. Shore, Sr., 69, of Kansas City, Mo., passed away May 5th, 2017, after making his peace with the Lord.  He passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones.  He was born November 16th, 1947, to Jay and Nell (Whitsett) Shore. 


He was preceded in death by his parents and his grandparents, Athol and Allene Shore. 


He is survived by his two sisters, Jennifer (Rodger) Parker and Anita Shore; five children, Shelly Wade, Natalie (Darrell) Bowles, Lauren Shore, Jeffrey “Jason” (Megan) Shore, Jr., and Preston Shore with fiancée Ariel Haggerty; seven grandchildren Joshua and Micah Kays, Sophia and Silas Bowles, Levi Shore, and Scarlet and Ella Shore. 


Jeffrey graduated from Westport High School in 1965 and attended the New York Institute of Art.  He later founded and successfully ran Shore Painting Company for several decades as an independent contractor and, in his later years, sincerely enjoyed teaching a new generation of individuals the wisdom of his finely-tuned craft that had taken a lifetime to acquire. 


Jeffrey was self-described as a “social chameleon” who could blend in with any crowd – regardless of class, ethnicity, or political preference.  He was an amazing story-teller and had a great sense of humor.  He enjoyed a wide-assortment of music and he loved to play his tunes loud while encouraging others to dance alongside of him.  He was also a sports-enthusiast and never wanted to miss a game involving the Kansas City Chiefs or KU Jayhawks. 


However, Jeffrey professed he was his “best-self” when he spent time with his children and grandchildren.  He enjoyed playing video-games, coaching softball, constructing legos, attending sports venues, and taking fishing and canoeing trips.  In his last days, he was actively involved in making sock-puppets for his grandchildren.   He was very much loved by all and will be greatly missed until we meet again.
