Robert J. Shumake Sr. - Obituary

Dallas, Texas - Robert J. Shumake Sr., a beloved member of the community, passed away peacefully at his home on December 21, 2023. Born on May 7, 1946, in Dallas, Texas, Robert led a life full of purpose and resilience.

Robert was a man of unwavering principles and integrity. He was known for his stern demeanor and his ability to "said what he meant and meant what he said". His straightforwardness earned him respect amongst his peers and made him a trusted figure within the community. Robert's presence in the streets of "Sunny South Dallas" was notable, and his impact on the lives of those around him will never be forgotten.

Throughout his life, Robert cherished the value of family. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife, two sisters, and one brother. He leaves behind a lasting legacy through his surviving family members: two children, three granddaughters, nine great-grandchildren (two girls and seven boys), as well as one great-great-granddaughter.
