Warren Lloyd Shuck, 88, of rural Baldwin City, Kansas passed away at home on Saturday February 5, 2022.
Warren was born on Sept 14, 1933 at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Lawrence, Ks to parents Lloyd and Lillian (Brohammer) Shuck.
He married Elsie Shively at the Elmer Shively home in rural Rossville, Indiana on July 18, 1954 at 2 pm. Besides the blessings of offspring the couple enjoyed nearly 67 years together working together at whatever task needed to be done.
At a young age he was baptized into the Old German Baptist Church at the Willow Springs District. He served his conscientious objector (CO) work at the Larned State Hospital, Larned, Ks from March 1953 to March 1955. In 1960, he and Elsie were elected to the church office of deacon, to which they provided years of faithful service.
Dad lived on a farm his entire life starting with his parent’s dairy farm. Over the years he was employed off the farm while still farming parttime. After 32 years of driving a rural delivery feed truck for the Baldwin Feed and Grain Company, he retired in 1997. After retirement he became even busier with farming and various truck driving ventures. Besides his love for farming Dad loved to attend farm auctions and tell stories – several of his grandkids have their favorites.
Survivors include children – Mary (Mike) Tye, Margaret (Fred) Clark, Mark (Kathy) Shuck, and Marcia (Galen) Peters, 13 grandchildren, 8 grandkid in-laws and 16 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife of 66 years, Elsie, in April of 2021.
