September 18, 2013 


Kylan Paul Farris, 21, of Lee’s Summit was called home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sept. 14, 2013.

Kylan was born August 5, 1992 in Sedalia, Mo. to Christian and Sherry (Holman) Farris. He graduated from Lee’s Summit North High School in 2011. Kylan had a contagious smile that lit up the room. He worked for the City of Lee’s Summit Water Department where he enjoyed his work and loved the many friendships with his co-workers. Most of all, Kylan was a proud father to his son, Cohen!

Kylan is survived by his son, Cohen; mother, Sherry McGrath (Tom), father, Christian Farris; maternal grandparents, Nina & Will Tobaben, Nolan & Gail Holman; paternal grandmother, Barbara Farris; step brother, TJ; step sisters, Caitlin & Sarah; and by a host of special aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many friends.
