In Memory of

Larry R. Shingleton

July 2, 1943 - July 4, 2020


Larry R. Shingleton died on July 4, 2020 at the age of 77. He was born on July 2, 1943, to Hershel and Dorothy (Pritchett) Shingleton  in Los Angeles, CA.

Larry worked as a Diesel Mechanic for 36 years for Cummins. He was a Navy Veteran, serving from 1960 to 1964. Larry was a proud father of 5 and a great husband.

Larry was a man that enjoyed life. He was a good cook and we spent a lot of time cooking together. We made quite the team. He liked to take long driving vacations seeing America. He enjoyed seeing the National Parks, the Southwest, and historical sites. We collected cookbooks from all the areas we visited and friends brought us cookbooks from their travels. So, we ended up with a very large library of cookbooks.

He appreciated art and supported me in all of my artistic endeavors. We had a very good life together. I will miss him with all of my heart.

Larry was preceded in death by 2 sons, Jason A. Shingleton and Curtis Lee Shingleton and a brother, Hershel “Sonny” Shingleton. Survivors include wife, Myrl-Ann Ransom; daughter, Sheryl Shingleton; son, Larry Shingleton Jr.; daughter, Rebecca Barnett (Brian); granddaughter, Mikayla Barnett;  grandson, Jason Barnett, and his dog Lady.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Alzheimer’s Association

Myrl- Ann– my memories of Larry were when Don was still alive and we would all go out for a bite to eat at a restaurant in Lee Summit, fun and great conversation and then the one year we shared a tent at the Lee summit Art Festival , and the men helped hang our art and keep us company at the fair. He had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us in good humor even though it was pretty warm and very few sales. I want very much to be at the memorial service for Larry to support you but cannot because of my circumstances. Love you very much, Cheryl

Words cannot express how sorry I am in your loss of Larry. My prayers and hugs go out to you and your family

Myrl-Ann, Mike and I often talk about how nice it was to spend time with you and Larry at the Raytown Art Show dinners and the Summit Art Christmas parties. We truly enjoyed visiting with Larry. Mike loved sharing stories with him. We will miss him.

Thank you for giving my dad a good life. Wish I could have been there for both of you

Larry will be greatly missed. The Lunch Bunch has lost it’s most loyal escort. He exhibited great courage by putting up with our woman talk at all those lunch meetings.

I always envied the many enjoyable trips you took. You saw a lot of magnificent sights together. I know you have lots of pictures to accompany your memories of those trips.

I know how hard this is for you and kids. You are in my prayers. Please take care of yourself love to you.we will miss Larry forever

So very sorry for your loss, Becca. Rejoice in the knowledge your children got to know him. He is never far away….just look into your heart!❤

Aunt Myrl-Ann, He will be very missed! He had a great life with you by his side. Sending you all prayers of peace and comfort. Love you!

Myrl-Ann, we are thinking about you and your family at this time. We are very sorry that we can’t be with you and the family at this time. Linda has to be careful after her heart problems, but we will be thinking of you and Larry on Tuesday. Love to all.

It sounds like you have many wonderful memories from your years together. So sorry for your loss.

I have learned that though you cannot express as well as you like memory issues do not affect your love for family members. That love increases. When the love is already there the increase for family members as well as the afflicted is monumental. All of the good moments are what is remembered.
I am sure your dad is at peace. The moment when you fully realize that during your grieving, give a small private smile. Move on with your life.
again my condolences to you and Larry’s family.
