Robert Edward Shumaker

Published in Akron Beacon Journal on October 19, 2012

Robert Edward Shumaker, 91, left us to be with his Heavenly Father and to be with his wife, Jeanette, of 68 years on October 17, 2012.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing and played with the Cincinnati Reds farm team after graduating from Garfield High School. He was an avid fan of the Ohio Sports teams. He retired from Goodrich and enjoyed traveling. One of his joys was teasing with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was their biggest fan at many softball, basketball and volleyball games, tennis and wrestling matches.

He was a member of the Akron Baptist Temple and Coventry-Akron Masonic Lodge.

He is survived by his daughters Sheryle (Dale) Cochrum, Nancy (Tom) Krampe and Diana (Gary) Props; grandchildren Julie, Lori, Amy, Dan, Kerry, Jackie and Jamie; great-grandchildren Tiffany, Zachary, Caden, Carson, Camryn, Josh, Matt, Mikey and Jayden.

Our family would like to thank the staff at St. Luke Lutheran Community for his care the last 3 years.

Private family services and burial will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2012.
