Obituary for Peter Ray "Pete" Jaynes

Peter (Pete) Ray Jaynes loving husband and father of three of Independence, Missouri passed away Sunday, September 9, 2018 surrounded by his family. Pete was born January 7, 1968 in Kansas City, Missouri. He was adopted by parents, Edgar Francis Jaynes and Gertrude Enoi Foo who both preceded him in death. Pete was a lifelong resident of Independence, graduating from William Chrisman High School in 1986 and raising his family here with the love of his life, Gayle (Shaw), whom he married July 21, 1990.
After attending University of Missouri Kansas City and earning his Bachelor of Business Administration from Baker University, Pete he enjoyed a successful career in Information Technology. He was a Legal Practice Support Specialist with Kutak Rock and was previously employed with Sprint for several years. Outside of work, Pete had a passion for politics and working in his yard, but he dedicated his time to the thing he loved the most, his family. He was a man of faith who, in his own words, believed “with a strong foundation you are all set to meet the challenges of the world.” Pete was known for his witty sense of humor, infectious laugh, and crafty ability to “tell it like it is” with friends and family.
Pete is survived by loving wife, Gayle; son Graham and wife Laura; and daughters Olivia and Isabelle. Pete and Gayle’s children were the center of Pete’s life, and his pride and joy. Pete was happily anticipating the birth of his son Graham’s first child this fall and was thrilled with the prospect of being a grandfather.
Pete is also survived by his siblings, Francis Jaynes Hammond, Lois Jaynes, Aaron Jaynes, Scott Jaynes and Jared Jaynes, as well as in-laws Koye Shaw (Diana) and Jake Clemons (Michele), nephews Dean and Nathan, and niece Averi.
The family is hosting a memorial service for Pete on Friday, September 14, 2018, 2:00pm at Speaks Suburban Chapel 18020 East 39th Street S, Independence, MO 64055. Pete was charitable in death as he was in life by being an organ donor. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jaynes family in care of Speaks Suburban Chapel.
