David Lee Milleret, 33, of Lawrence, Kansas died in his home on Thursday evening, March 19, 2015. Visitation will occur Wednesday, March 25 from 7:00-8:00 pm at the Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home. A memorial service for David will be held at 10 am, Thursday, March 26, 2015, at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home. Inurnment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.
He was born January 5, 1982, in Lawrence, KS, the son of Mark and Melinda Cain Milleret. He graduated from Tonganoxie High School in 2000. Shortly after graduation, David and his partner Kendra Mosier moved to Park Hills, MO, where he worked for many years as a craftsman for Ken Mosier Construction Inc.
David and Kendra moved back to Kansas where he worked for Hawks Pointe Apartments in their maintenance department. He did this until symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis overcame his physical abilities.
Mr. Milleret loved to spend time with Kendra and their daughter Kaitlyn. David was also an art aficionado with a vast knowledge and love for music, film, and literature. In the last few years of his life, the affliction limited his mobility but could not erode the love he held for his friends and family nor did it impact his wonderful sense of humor, which he held on to until the end.
David’s partner and care-giver Kendra Mosier, a trained LPN, provided around the clock care, ensuring that Dave was as happy and comfortable as possible as he struggled with Multiple Sclerosis.
Survivors include his partner Kendra Mosier and their daughter Kaitlyn of the home; parents Mark and Melinda Milleret, Linwood; sister Nancy Hultgren and her husband Brice, Commerce City, CO; grandmothers Martha Milleret and Roberta Cain, both of Lawrence.
He is preceded in death by his two grandfathers, L. J. Milleret and Donald Cain.
Memorial contributions may be made to Douglas County Visiting Nurses, sent in care of the funeral home.

Prayers and hugs,
Dear Mark, Melinda, Kendra and Kaitlyn,
I am so sorry and sad for your loss.
My favorite memory of David is once as a little boy, probably about 5. I was visiting and he showed me his room and things in it and just talked a mile a minute. I came down, bemused, and Melinda just shook her head and laughed “He’s a chatterbox!”
We will be thinking of you this week.
Susie and Sandy
So sorry, I remember David as a kind and fun cousin when we were kids. We’re thinking of you in England.
