Richard Lee Shoenfelt
January 06, 1939 ‒ August 23, 2017
MANSFIELD: Richard “Dick” Shoenfelt went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 in Morrow Manor Nursing Center surrounded by his family. He was 78.
Dick was born January 6, 1939 in Stubenville to parents Guy & Ruth (Zeger) Shoenfelt. A young lady named Peggy Lee Fendley caught his eye and the pair married on May 17, 1969. He was a truck driver for many years, most recently at Con-Way Central Express for 15 years.
Three things were most important to Richard: number one was God, number two was family, and number three was golf. Dick had a heart for the Lord and an evangelical spirit. A gentleman to his core, Dick truly loved his family and always looked for the best in others. He enjoyed hot rod car shows and deer hunting, but golfing was his passion and he was blessed to golf all across the USA.
Richard was a member of Calvary Baptist in Ashland where he enjoyed fellowship with his church family—especially his Sunday school classmates.
He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years Peggy Shoenfelt of Mansfield; daughter Jill (Paul) Reynolds of Cadiz, KY; grandchildren Evan Werner, Michaela Werner, Damon Reynolds, Justin Reynolds, Blake Reynolds, and Caleb Reynolds; siblings Janet Griffeth, Jim (Nancy) Shoenfelt, Linda Black, and Ruth Ann Wilson; sister-in-law Vilena Shoenfelt; along with many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Richard was preceded in death by siblings David Shoenfelt, Joe Shoenfelt, and Jeanne Miles.
His family will receive friends Sunday, August 27, 2017 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. A private graveside funeral service honoring Richard’s life will be held in Oak Grove Memorial Park near Lexington. His son-in-law Paul Reynolds will officiate before the burial.
