Danny Ray Shumway


Danny Ray Shumway, 64, is home with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as of Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016.

There will not be a funeral at this time, but at a later date, a celebration of his life on earth, and his moving to heaven. He believed in the scripture that states, "Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord." (2 Corinthians 5:8 NLT)

We, his family, are writing this in present tense as we know Danny is alive, well and having the time of his life now in his heavenly home. As Danny came to know Jesus, he became a very loving, humble, tender and a Godly man who loved the Lord.

He was born to Herman and Marlene Shumway in San Diego, Calif., while his family was stationed there for the U.S. Marine Corps. He and his family later moved to Wolf Point, where he would grow up and meet the love of his life, Linda (Sibley) Shumway. They were married in 1980 and had two children, Sanders and Sloane.

He is a dedicated worker and spent over three decades working as a parts man at Fox Ford in Wolf Point with great knowledge and expertise.

He is a kind and generous man, always willing to lend a helping hand where needed. He has a great, original sense of humor, and is referred to by his family as their "human google" for his wide knowledge base of anything and everything. He has enjoyed every moment of his life, his time outside, his dog Faith, mowing and working in the yard, and his many times with family and friends, especially his two beautiful granddaughters.

He is a great husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend. We love you Danny, dad, grandpa Danno, and are excited to see you again when we join you in heaven. Until next time ...

Survivors include his wife, Linda; a son, Sanders and his wife, Alicia; granddaughters Liberty and Melody; a daughter, Sloane and her husband, Rod Glasoe, and children Mahaila, Mikel, Dalton, Zoe and Toby; his parents, Herman and Marlene; three brothers, John and his wife, Rhonda, and Steve and his wife, Tonya, and Bill; one sister, Sheila Woods and her husband, Joe; and many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Minot Youth for Christ at 318 5th Avenue NW, Minot, ND 58703.
