Dale Davis Shewmaker, a kind and gentle person, died Monday, September 25, 2017 in Decatur, Illinois.
Dale was born in October of 1933 in Decatur, Illinois. He was a lifelong Decatur resident and a senior who was
victimized many times due to his disability of being a deaf-mute; for financial exploitation and then again in June of
2017, Dale was the victim of a hit and run which hastened his death. Thanks to all those who returned Dale’s
kindness on numerous occasions.
Dale was preceded in death by his father and mother, John and Martha Shewmaker and one sister.
He leaves behind his good friends and fifteen year caretakers Charles Allen and Mary Bullock of Warrensburg, and
his buddies at McDonald’s West.
