OBITUARY

Benjamin Cole Mundy

October 28, 2002October 12, 2020

Benjamin Cole Mundy (Ben), 17, Kansas City, MO. Ben passed away on October 12, 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri. Ben was born on October 28, 2002 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Parents: Sarah McDavitt Beers and Michael & Sabrina Mundy. He leaves behind 6 siblings Noah Beers (8), Samuel Mundy (15), Ashly Seoane (20), Areos Seoane (23), Brandon Alcocer Seoane (26) and Axel Seoane (28).

Ben attended Franklin Elementary, Warren Hills Elementary, Heritage Middle School, and Liberty High School, all in the Liberty, Missouri School District. Ben was currently working at Jiffy Lube, and loved his job there. He enjoyed sports, and played football and rugby for Liberty High School.

Ben loved working with his hands, which he learned from his dad. He built and created things with wood, which he would often gift to others. He taught himself how to turn wood on a lathe and to weld. He enjoyed helping others with welding projects, especially if it was helping a buddy modify his exhaust for maximum volume when revving the engine. He loved being with friends.

Ben had a beautiful singing voice, and was learning guitar to accompany his love affair with country music, founded in his childhood passion for cowboy movies.

Ben was quick to help in any situation. He loved to feel needed. He found a way to smile in the most difficult circumstances. He was a protector. A gentle giant. A brother to many.

Ben is survived by his parents, Sarah Beers, Michael Mundy and step-mother Sabrina Mundy; his grandparents, Bob and Cindy McDavitt, Lylene Dolen, Wes and Debbie Mundy, and Ruth Davila. He is survived by all of his siblings (listed above), and a long list of loving cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

He is also survived by a group of very dedicated friends who have become like family to us. You kids know who you are.

Ben will be laid to rest on October 17, 2020 at New Hope Cemetery in Liberty, Missouri following a funeral service at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 6751 NE 70th Street, Kansas City, Missouri. His burial site is located near a wooded tree line (Ben loved to be in the woods with his buddies), and near enough to an operating train track to hear the train passing occasionally (Those who knew him as a preschooler remember his obsession with trains).

A Big Brother Memorial Fund has been established for those who would like to make a donation in Ben’s honor. The fund will be used for the benefit of his two surviving younger brothers. More details can be found here on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/benjaminc.mundy.1

Ben, we love you. Our world won’t be the same without your smile, your love, and your energy. We anxiously await a future glorious reunion with you.

Whenever Ben entered a room it brightened. He always had a story and talked with everyone. He was never rude always had respect for everyone. We will all be affected by his passing. I wish I had more of a chance to talk to him. I wish his family well and grace in this tough time.

I was so blessed to meet Ben but on top of that to become friends with him. He was one who never held a grudge or could never be mad at anybody. I went to elementary school with Ben and him and I were inseparable in 5th grade. We always stood in line with each other and went to the computer lab with each other. we grew apart but in highschool I saw him playing rugby and knew his teammates since I played girls rugby at LN. I feel like I just saw Ben running around making tackles and making everyone laugh. May him rest in piece. I know he’s making everyone smile up there like he did down here.

Through my daughter, Mya Young, I have been blessed to have known and enjoy Ben. He was always one to make me smile, so caring, always there for his friends. When I would volunteer at school Ben was the first one to give me a hug. I am so very sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
