Alfred M. Kindle

Alfred M. “Al” Kindle, 77, of Sedalia, passed away Friday, February 8, 2019, at his home.

He was born January 17, 1942, in La Monte, son of Homer Thomas and Myrle Josephine (Poynter) Kindle.

On a beautiful Monday night in Kansas in May of 1964, he was married to Edna Vale (Gilmore), who preceded him in death on February 15, 2017.

Al’s two specialties in life were horse training and storytelling. He trained racehorses the majority of his life and had his best year just last year. He and lifelong friend and horse partner in crime, Patty Wagenknecht, had their most successful year ever. He was a jokester and spent countless hours having breakfast and playing liar’s poker with his friends. Al and Edna loved kids, and were parent figures to many over the years, opening their home to countless people. He loved life on the farm, and hosted many charity events to support the community. He rarely missed one of his grandkids’ ball games. He will be remembered for his generosity. Al was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church.

He is survived by four children, Shannon Zerilli (Martin), Tom Kindle (Cassie), Jason Kindle (Kim), and Nicole Ramey (Tyler), all of Sedalia; ten grandchildren, Dominic, Colton, Madeline, Brody, Brandon, Eli, Brandon (Nikki), Joshua (Anna), Kaylee and Lacy; one great-granddaughter, Aveline; two sisters, Nadine Klein and Kathy Martin (Corbett); and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Brad Clouse; two brothers and nine sisters.

A celebration of life will be held at the farm at a later date.

Memorials may be given to the Association for Persons with Disabilities, in care of Heckart Funeral Home.
