Arthur "Art" Kirkendoll


Arthur (Art) Kirkendoll, passed away on December 16, 2022, in his home. Arthur was born on December 8th, 1958 to Lesley Kirkendoll and Anna Davis in Independence, Missouri. 

He relocated to California for many years. He graduated high school and attended school for computer programming. 


Art had numerous skills/interests over the years. He was a skilled guitarist for many different bands (his last was Beyond Vengeance), and a black belt in karate. He was the most caring person you could meet. He would do anything to help others.


Art was a single father for many years and worked multiple jobs to provide for his son Kevin. He married the love of his life Sharon in 1995. Art then stepped in as the father of John and Ashley. If you asked Art what his greatest accomplishment was in life it would have been being a fantastic father and grandfather. You always see him in the stands cheering on his kids and grandkids. When he wasn’t with family you would find him strumming his guitar, rooting for the chiefs, and watching history movies.


Arthur was predeceased by his wife Sharon Kirkendoll, father Lesley Kirkendoll, mother Anna Davis, and son John Finn Jr. He is survived by his son Kevin Kirkendoll, daughter Ashley (Cameron) Reynolds, and seven grandchildren Aiden, Brianna, Cameron, Hailey, Kayla, Kylin, and Logan. His siblings Dennis (Cindy) Kirkendoll, Doug Long, and many nieces and nephews. 

There will be a celebration of life announced at a later date.
