Barry Wayne “Butch” Shook, 56

Barry Wayne “Butch” Shook, 56, Batesville, died peacefully Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, at The Waters of Batesville. 

The son of the late Ronald Shook and Rebecca (Webster) Shook was born Aug. 27, 1957, in Batesville. 

Although small in size, Barry accomplished many things in life. He graduated from Batesville High School in 1975, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in finance economics from Ball State University and a master's degree from Xavier University. 

He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 33. Barry went on to become a professional Boy Scout, retiring as the district executive in Kalamazoo, Mich. After retiring, he became the manager of the Batesville Knights of Columbus Hall. One of the things Barry liked the most was to cook and he was very good at it.

Barry was a very giving person his whole life and never did anything halfway. He always gave 110 percent. This is why his family was not surprised and very honored when Barry decided to donate his body to the University of Cincinnati for research. For Barry, it just seemed fitting.

Barry is survived by his brothers Joseph Shook and his wife Sue, Kevin Shook and Brian “Scott” Shook, Batesville; a sister, Teri Lyn Hughes, Texas; special family friend Charles Winburn, Batesville; and his nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

After a visitation from 1-2 p.m., a memorial service will be held Saturday, Feb. 15, at 2 p.m. at Meyers Funeral Home, 1150 State Road 46 E., Batesville, with the Rev. Charles Flory officiating. Memorials may be given to the Boy Scouts of America or Phi Beta Psi Sorority for cancer research. Online condolences can be posted at
