Bill Shumway passed away June 22, 2019 at the hospital in Lovell, Wyoming. Bill was born in Lovell on January 2, 1930 to Willie and Ida Shumway. He joined the Wyoming National Guard in 1947 and graduated from High School in 1948. He was sent to Korea in August of 1950 and when he returned Bill worked at the Sugar Factory and drove truck for the Lovell Freight Lines. He married the love of his life, Mildred Kondelik in 1956 and to this union four daughters were born, Elma, Ann, Ranae, and Ellie. After his discharge, Bill and Mildred settled in Greybull, Wyoming and he worked at Hawkins and Powers Airport as a mechanic, drove truck, and was a mechanic at a gas station. His last job was working at Dresser Minerals until his retirement.

After his wife passed away, his new home became New Horizon Care Center in Lovell, where he resided until his death. He met many new and old friends at the Care Center and enjoyed being back in his hometown, Lovell.

Bill enjoyed talking to anyone who would listen about airplanes, as he had an interest in them from a very young age.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, his parents, and all his siblings.

He is survived by his four daughters, Elma Scheid of Salt Lake City, Utah, Ann Kniepkamp (Randy) of Lindsay, Montana, Ranae Shumway of Casper, Wyoming, and Ellie Ibarra (Ted) of Weiser, Idaho; fourteen grandchildren, 21 Great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
