John F. Shuman, age 92, of Mesa, Ariz., died April 4, 2008, at his home.

He was born on Jan. 21, 1916, in Plains, Kan., to Frank and Etta Shuman.

John married Bonnie Lucas on Dec. 7, 1936. They made their home in Byers, Colo., with their two sons, Ronald and Conald (C.B.) He had been married to Bonnie for 50 years when she passed away in 1986.

He later married Sharon Keller on Sept. 13, 1988. He had lived in Mesa for the past 20 years.

John Shuman will be remembered as one of the coutry’s most prominent Shorthorn Cattle Breeders. His ranch, Colomeadow Farms, was highly regarded as an agriculture industry leader. He was inducted into the Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame in February of 2008. He was equally dedicated to his community and other agricultural pursuits, including a tree nursery, golf course, and champion Quarter Horses.

John served on numerous boards and committees throughout his lifetime, and was an avid philanthropist. He was a Master Mason for over 60 years. Among many honors, he was past president of the American Shorthorn Association and was presented with the Byers Man of the Year award in 1970 by the Byers Commercial Club. John’s success in all of his endeavors was in direct proportion to his sharp attention to detail and commitment to excellence.

John was an avid golfer and enjoyed the excitement of hitting a hole-in-one on May 28, 1992, at Fountain of the Sun in Mesa. But perhaps the greatest basic secret to his success was his treatment of his fellow man. His passion was treating everyone with honesty and integrity. His life and accomplishments are a testament to this philosophy.

He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Sharon; two sons, Ronald and wife Mary Ann, and C.B. and wife Shirley; and extended family, Lance and Glenda. He will be lovingly remembered by 8 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one sister, Helen, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services were held on April 19 at the Byers Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be sent in John’s name to a charity of the donor’s choice.
