John W. Cook, 83, of Rochester

John W. Cook, 83, of Rochester, was surrounded by his loving family when he passed away at 5:53 PM on Thursday, June 17, 2021 at IU Methodist Hospital of Indianapolis. 

 

On January 16, 1938, John was born in Peru.  He was a treasured son of Willard and Margaret Hall Cook. Growing up he shared his childhood with two brothers, Jim and Richard.   A proud Tiger, John graduated from Peru High School in 1956.  During his Tiger tenure he was a member of the cross-country team and ran the distance and endurance events for the track team.

 

In Peru, John and Sharon Kay Kunkle were married on May 28, 1958. They shared 53 years of life’s adventures. From their union came four wonderful children: Cindy, Ginger, Tim and Mark.  The family tree continued to grow with the added blessings of two more generations including seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

 

For many years the Cook family enjoyed their home on the tip of Wolf's Point Dr. situated on the SE shore of Lake Manitou. Sundays brought on the competition of the C-Scow sail boat racing.  John could be seen gliding across the lake always in a good position. He savored the times of tooling around with Sharon and the family on the pontoon or pulling the grandkids skiing and tubing.  

John also had a great love of flight. He took flight over the decades in his Cessna #182 airplane.  John hung up his headset, retiring in 1994 after 29 years of flying high in the blue sky.

 

After retiring as a plastic mold injection engineer, John enjoyed volunteering, giving back to our community.  For many years he volunteered at the Shafer Medical Center.  He also was a member of the valet team at Woodlawn Hospital.  John also drove a bus for Rochester Community Schools for 12 years, delivery precious cargo.

 

With great athletic prowess, at the age of 50 years old, John re-initiated his running activities with training and entering several area mini-marathons including the Blueberry Stomp.   He was also accomplished with ice skating, roller-blading and bicycling.

 

A man of great faith, John was a vibrant member of the First Baptist Church.  He was on the finance board, deacon and board of trustees. Sharon and John provided great support for the Boat Church Service held each Sunday at 7:44 am. They along with Gordon and Ruth Bohs were hosts for the event.  A red-orange canoe powered by John could be seen crossing the lake with boxes of donuts that the Cook's delivered to the floating boat church congregation as they anchored and were poised ready for the service. 

 

Left to cherish John's memory are two daughters: Cindy York of Fort Wayne, Ginger Liegibel of Indianapolis; two sons: Tim Cook and wife Velma of Empire MI, Mark Cook and wife Jamie of Waldo, FL; seven grandchildren: Melissa Jacobs and husband Derek, Krystal Buckley, Patrick K. York Jr., Andrea Barts and husband Landon, Brandon Liegibel and wife Grace, Nicholas Cook and wife Jannipher, Alex Cook and wife Samantha; nine great-grandchildren: Wyatt, Peyton, Mya, DeVonte, Lera, Owen, Nora, Garrett and Isabella; two brothers: James R. Cook and wife Cindy of The Villages, FL, Richard D. Cook and wife Jenith of Cypress, TX; brother-in-law Ed Kunkle and wife Judy of Peru; and several nieces and nephews.

 

Preceding John in death are his parents, Willard and Margaret Cook, and beloved wife Sharon Kay on September 21, 2011.

 

A celebration of the life of Mr. John W. Cook will be at 11:00 AM on Monday, June 21, 2021 in the Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 West 18th Street, Rochester. Dr. Mark Spencer will officiate.

Rusty Wire Shelburne, 61, of Scotts, MI and former Rochester resident

Rusty Wire Shelburne, 61, of Scotts, MI and former Rochester resident, passed away June 11, 2021.  His tragic unexpected death resulted from  injuries sustained in a fall at his home on May 7, 2021.  

 

On August 3, 1959, Rusty was born in Noblesville.  He was a treasured son of Howard Dale and Rebecca Jacquelyn "Jackie" Wire Shelburne.  Growing up as the fifth of the eleven Shelburne kids, Rusty shared his childhood with 6 brothers and 4 sisters. During his high school years Rusty worked at Kentucky Fried Chicken. A young businessman, he was appointed as assistant manager his junior and senior years. He also worked at the Rochester Sale Barn on Saturday's as well.  With great Zebra pride, he graduated from Rochester High School with his class in 1977. 

 

In Kalamazoo, Rusty married the love of his life and best friend Miss Laurie Drenth on  June 3, 1978.  Together they shared 43 years of life's adventures.  From their union came a handsome son Derek.  The family tree continued to grow with the added blessings of three grandchildren.

 

Continuing his studies at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Rusty earned an Associates degree in law enforcement.  After his graduation in 1980, Rusty went to work as a member of the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department.  His career spanned nearly four decades.  He initiated his career with the marine division, then moved to court security, jailer, road patrol, worked in dispatch and concluded his career with transport.  His badge # 131 was retired in October of 2018.  Officer Shelburne enjoyed serving his community, with a huge heart, he was always there to help anyone in need.  Rusty was revered by his colleagues and appreciated by the citizens of Kalamazoo County. 

 

 

 As an American outdoorsman, Rusty took Laurie riding on the Honda Goldwing for many adventures over the years.  He was a member of the Honda Goldwing Club.  In 2016, he purchased his first Harley - Davidson Motorcycle and got bit by the bug.  In May of 2020, Rusty purchased a Harley - Davidson Ultra-Limited shiny two-tone green that he and Laurie rode over 9,000 miles.  They enjoyed many daytrips or long weekends around Michigan or cruising the highways of Arizona.   

 

A camping enthusiast,  since his retirement,  Rusty has wintered near Apache Junction, Arizona where he and Laurie could be near Derek and the grandchildren. They also cultivated many friendships while riding the ATV around the scenic mountains and across the picturesque deserts in Arizona.  Rusty enjoyed the competition of racing his remote-control car.   He thoroughly loved the game of golf and managed to get in some games with Derek.

 

Rusty's greatest attribute was his love, compassion and desire to help others.  He would be consistently checking in on friends, neighbors and his family to assist them with fixing things or solving problems.   Paramount in Rusty's life was his family.  While Derek was growing up he was a 3-sport athlete thru his school years, playing golf, baseball and basketball. Rusty was always there in the stands or gallery to support and cheer him on.  Along came the grands and it was Grampa Rusty and Grandma Laurie ready to take them to the park for a day of great fun.
