Stephen Adlington 74, of Overland Park, Kansas went to be with His Heavenly Father on August 11th 2014. He died peacefully at home in the arms of his loving wife, Jeannie Matson Adlington. He enjoyed a long successful career in the automotive industry with Kenning Car Mart Ltd (London), from which he retired in 1999 when he moved to America. In his free time, Stephen enjoyed listening to and making music, often surprising people with clarinet serenades by phone and in person. He also entertained people with his warm wit and charming personality, often referencing his love of all things British. He was known for not merely thinking of acts of kindness but for actually carrying them out. He was preceded in death by his parents Ernest and Christina Adlington and his brother Mark Adlington, of Chesham, England. He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Jeannie; also Simon Adlington and his wife Penny of Nelson, New Zealand and grandchildren Ben Stephen and Finn Peter; and by his daughter Sarah Adlington Crow and her husband Marcus of Sydney, Australia and grandchildren Jamie William and Toby Marcus.
