King Roland David


King David, 59, Overland Park, KS, passed away on November 22, 2023 due to a combination of serious underlying medical issues, surrounded by family and friends. Despite the pain and his own stubbornness, King fought hard until the end because “why wouldn’t ya?”.


King, fondly known as KR, was born on November 17, 1964 in Amarillo, TX to Kingsford and Beverly David. He graduated from Shawnee Mission West High School in 1983. KR married the love of his life, Lyn, on August 21,1993. The story of their famous date at Johnny Cascone’s Italian Restaurant, where KR had to briefly escape the restaurant while on a “bathroom break” to go withdrawal money from the bank in order to pay the bill after Lyn recanted her original offer to pay, was still commonly told. Together, they had two children: Jordan and Jessica. For the past 39 years, he enjoyed working at Capitol Federal Savings Bank. 


KR was a devoted father, always the man with the camcorder recording each and every family event and holiday. KR was an avid “sports dad”, spending many years as the head coach for the Margarita’s Mustangs; cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, Kansas Jayhawks, and Arkansas Razorbacks. KR spent many Sunday mornings golfing with his buddies; “I’ll tell ya right now”, it took a lot of balls to golf like he did……“that’s funny right there”, as he would ordinarily say (loudly). KR was the man of many iconic phrases. 


“Rick Flair……WOOOOOOOO”.


KR is survived by his two children, Jordan David and his fiancée, Kenna; and Jessica Habiger and her husband, Austin. KR was preceded in death by his wife, Lyn David; mother, Beverly David; and father, Kingsford David.
