Lloyd E. Shook, 93, Oblong, IL passed away Monday November 23, 2015 at Newton Care Center, Newton, IL.

Lloyd was born on June 20, 1922 in Jasper County, IL and was the son of Roy A. Shook and Pearl (Miller) Shook. On March 31, 1951 he married Dorla Dean Ikemire and they had been married for 64 wonderful years.

Lloyd started as an auto mechanic at Hughes Ford Auto Dealership in Oblong, IL, and then at Matheny’s Auto in Oblong, IL, where he retired in 1985. Lloyd served his country in WWII in the United States Army. He was a member of St. Valentine Catholic Church in the Bend Area of Jasper County, IL and also a member of the V.F.W. He enjoyed working on all types of electronics, mowing, planting trees and then cutting them down so mowing was much easier.

Preceding Lloyd in death were his parents; three brothers, Herman, Paul and Argo Shook; one sister Blanche Snyder; two sisters-in-law, Lillie Shook and Joan Shook; two brothers-in-law, Donald McCormick and Ralph Snider.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers an expression of sympathy may take the form of a contribution to the Oblong American Legion Post #219.
