David “Dave” Jolliff, 61, of Guthrie Center, IA, formerly of Gardner, KS and Lawrence, KS, passed away Sunday, April 10, 2022 in Des Moines, Iowa.


Dave was born May 25, 1960 in Smithville, MO, to Elmer Finas Jolliff and Sandra Sue (Harder) Jolliff.


Dave had been employed by the City of Gardner, KS before moving to Iowa to live in the country.  It was in Gardner where he met Linda Bell.  They were married September 14, 2002 in Gardner.


He was a proud 15 year veteran serving in the Marines, Army, and Army National Guard.  Dave loved the simple life and was happiest living in the country with Linda and their animals.  He never met a stranger and definitely had the gift of gab.


Dave is survived by his wife, Linda; daughter, Danielle (Andrew) Carey; son, Troy Rousello; step-sons, Kevin (Kari) Bell, Aaron (Amanda) Bell, and Jason (Brooke) Bell; 11grandchildren.  Also surviving are siblings, Nora, Exie, Patty, Leonard, Roger, Jimmy, Betty, and Bobbie; along with several nieces and nephews.


A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held at a later date.
