He was preceded in death by his father.

He grew up in Roscommon, Mich., and attended Ferris State University. He later received an associate degree from Lincoln Land Community College.

Living in Bears country, Bob was proud to admit he was a Lions fan, and he became a true Lincolnite when he moved to Lincoln.

Bob felt that his family was his greatest accomplishment in life. Golf and his golfing family became his devotion. His loyal golfing friends became a solid support team who practiced God's love through their great compassion as they helped the family through his two years with cancer.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to cover his medical expenses and for a memorial at the Lincoln Elks Golf Course may be made to the Robert Shattuck Benefit Fund at Logan County Bank, 303 Pulaski St., Lincoln, IL 62656.
