Obituary

Valentins Alksnis III was born on January 30th, 1967, and passed away April 24th, 2022. 

His life began in Des Moines, Iowa where he spent all of his formative years until graduating from high school in 1985.  While going to college he met his devoted wife of 32 years, Yevette. They were married in 1990 in Ankeny, Iowa. The dynamic duo of Val & Vette later moved to Manhattan, KS where Alec was born in 1993 and Brent followed in 1996. In 2014, his grandson, Gavin was born. His joy and love grew even more. Val continued his education while furthering his career in Health Care Administration and completing his Masters's Degree in 2006 from Regis. Val was very humble but demonstrated his honor and commitment in his actions, work ethic, and love for his family. 

Over the past 28 years, Val worked in various hospitals in Manhattan, KS, Texarkana, TX, Wichita, KS, Belton, TX, Pickerington, OH, and Mars, PA. In 2021 Val achieved his lifelong goal of becoming a Vice President in the Washington DC and Baltimore, MD areas. This great opportunity was found at MedStar. 

Val was the most doting, loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He would send daily messages to his sons - “Have a great day Sir!! Love you!!!” He watched the weather channel for all his loved ones and called to warn or check on them on a regular basis. Val never left the house without a “Love you” and a kiss goodbye to Vette, followed by a kiss hello in the evening. 

And our story would not be complete without his furry friend and companion Lulu. She would stand waiting for him at the back door for her hug and kiss each evening.  

Val never showed signs of slowing down. Living life to the fullest, he could be found singing karaoke, and going to concerts with Vette. Even relaxing at home or waiting in an elevator, Val made the little moments special.  His compassion for helping others and problem solving are unmatched. “Val-isms” are a real thing with quick wit, outside-the-box thought process. He shined in his brilliance yet would always choose to shine the light on others. He always remembered to recognize a good moment when it happened. 

Val is survived by his wife Yevette, sons Alec and Brent, and grandson Gavin. Val is also survived by his mother, Linda Clarkson, brother, Travis (Kate), sisters, Valerie Alksnis (Brian), Lori Clarkson, and Yvonne Spratlen (Slade). During the yearly visits, there was nobody more loved cherished and worshipped than Uncle Val. His nieces are Emily, Kennedy, Avery, and Brylee. Val’s are nephews, Bryan, Zach, Trevor, and Brody. 

So no other family suffers a tragic loss like ours, in lieu of flowers, please consider purchasing a sign for motorcycle awareness.

It is our wish that no other family suffers a tragic loss like ours. 

The family would like to thank you for all your love, support, prayers and acts of kindness during this difficult time.
