Randall Lewis Shambarger, 60, of Rochester, passed away Friday, November 20, 2020 at the VA Hospital of Fort Wayne.
In Kokomo, on December 25, 1959, Randall Lewis Shambarger was born to Charles K. Sr. and Carol A. Crousore Shambarger. Randy graduated in 1978 from Rochester High School. He played varsity football and baseball.
Patriotism beckoned and Randy answered the call serving with the United States Army. During his service stint he was stationed in Germany.
Returning stateside Randy went to work at Moore's Business Forms. More recently he was a professional truck driver for Prime, Inc.
A founding member of the L.Y.M. Gang, Randy took his leadership role seriously. He was lifelong athlete either playing sports, watching his favorite teams or coaching youth leagues, especially when Jordan was playing. He especially enjoyed little league umpiring or coaching.
When the diamond was not in use, a perfectionist, Randy was the field master grooming the diamond, outfield and base paths impeccably.
He was also a member of the LeRoy Shelton American Legion #36 Rochester.
Left to cherish Randy's memory are his mother, Carol A. Bahney of Rochester; daughter, Kayla Ewing and significant other, Michael Smith of Peru; son Randall “Jordan” Shambarger of Rochester; five grandchildren: Damion Ewing, Draevin Smith, Draeah Smith, Aurora Shambarger, Alice Shambarger; seven siblings: Kelly Shambarger of Centerville, OH, Lela Nash and husband Gordon of Warsaw, Charles K. “Chuck” Shambarger and wife Robin of Jackson NJ, Lory Headdy and husband Joseph of Wheaton, IL, Jill Pugh and husband Kevin of Rochester, Martin Bahney and wife Kathy of Warsaw, Ty Bahney of Rochester; and several nieces and nephews.
