Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
James Bedsaul, 74, of Independence, MO passed away Thursday, December 9, 2021 at his daughters home in Blue Springs, from complications from life’s B.S. Celebration of Life will be held from 4:00pm – 7:00pm, Friday, January 7, 2022 at Bobby Bakers Lounge, Waldo, MO. James was born, February 13, 1947 in Kansas City, KS.
James “Jimmy” Bedsaul prided himself in being a father of two and ex husband to many. He spent 38 of his 74 years as a bartender in midtown. Some of you will remember him from The Club Royal, Jimmys Jigger, Twin City, and Westport Flea Market just to name a few. Most of you will remember him for his sarcasm and quick witt. With his contagious, ornery grin, he always had a joke or story to tell and made sure those in his presence were smiling too. Jimmys presence will be greatly missed but not forgotten.
He was preceded in death by: father, Wade Henry Bedsaul at age 74.
Survivors include: first born and daddy’s little girl, Joey Phillips, 43, of Blue Springs, MO; only son and arguably his clone, Wade Bedsaul, 38 of China, Maine; brothers, Robert Yazel of Kansas and Randall Cross of Texas; sisters, Elsie, Jackie, Tammy, and Patty; 7 grandkids (from oldest to youngest) Jenna, Austin, Paris, Haylee, Kyle, Leyton, and Jaxxson; and one great-grandson, Landon.

Jim is one of the few men that I have true respect for. Prior to Wade’s birth, daughter Joey (burger butt) is pretty much what his life revolved around. I’ve always admired Jim and he will be missed.
Cindy Chowning says
Jimmy entered my heart and he will never leave. When I met Jim he kelp me laughing. You can’t have a bad day around him. He told a lot of jokes and some went over my head cause I am so short. Lol he said this to me. I’m just smiling typing this. He will forever be loved and carried in my heart and memory.
