Lewis M. Shinaberry, 93, of Champion, Ohio, went home to be with his Lord, and his loving wife, Barbara, Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at his home, surrounded by his family.
Born January 16, 1929, in Cass, he was a son of the late Edgar Shinaberry and Mary Burns Shinaberry White.
Lewis was a graduate of Green Bank High School. After graduating, he was drafted into the United States Army in 1951 to serve his country until he was honorably discharged in 1953. After serving in the United States Army, he attended a business college in West Virginia. He then moved to Ohio where he met the love of his life, Barbara Soliday, and they were married July 26, 1954.
Lewis was a foreman for 34 years at American Welding. After retiring, he did numerous side jobs to keep busy.
Lewis helped break ground for Grace Baptist Church where he was very much a big part of the church. At one time, he was head deacon, head usher and Financial Treasurer. He and his wife were members for more than 40 years.
For enjoyment, Lewis loved spending time with his family and grandchildren. His biggest hobby was going squirrel hunting with his brother, Tom, and his nephew, Lawrence. He would always bring home the tails for his two younger daughters.
In addition to his parents, Lewis was preceded in death by his loving wife, Barbara, who passed away August 1, 2021; brothers, Ted, Gale, Tom, Danny and Ronnie; and son-in-law, Scott Worron.
Lewis will be deeply missed by his four daughters, Mary Lou (Tom) Killeen, Cindy Worron, Patricia (Benjamin Rowe) Fennell and Twila (Ted) Zandarski; sister, Rebecca (Phil ) Evans; 11 grandchildren, Dawn, Ann and Lewis Killeen, Michael, Kayla and Billy Frazier, Ashley and James Reed, Nicholas Fennell, Noah and Adam Worron; 21 great-grandchildren; and one great- great-granddaughter.
Lewis is one man who will never be forgotten. A man that so many looked up to and loved.
Funeral service was held Monday, November 7, 2022, at Grace Baptist Church of Champion in Warren, Ohio with Rev. William Sprague and Lawrence Shinaberry officiating. Entombment was in Crown Hill Burial Park in Vienna, Ohio.
The family would like to thank all the private caregivers who had so much love for our dad. We couldn’t have done this without all of you.
