Dallas Leon "Bud" Shively, 85, passed away peacefully at his home Sunday morning, March 17, 2013.

Bud was born June 17, 1927 on the family farm in Thorncreek Township, Whitley County to Murry and Eva (Strouse) Shively. A 1945 graduate of Wolf Lake High School, he was a member of the 1941-1942 Wolf Lake semi-state finals basketball team.

On December 9, 1950, he was united in marriage to June J. (Rarick) in the Wolf Lake Baptist Church. She survives.

Mr. Shively was engaged in farming and drove school bus until he built Wolf Lake Feed and Farm Supply, opening the doors November 11, 1956. The business expanded in 1983 with the purchase of Farmer’s Grain of Columbia City. Bud worked with his family before health issues forced his retirement in 2012.

Bud enjoyed baseball, basketball, and fishing. He coached baseball at DeVol field for many years and will be best remembered for his faithful, life-long attendance at Blue River Church of the Brethren and his dedication to his children and grandchildren. His grandchildren could always count on seeing Grandpa Bud cheering them on from the crowd.

In addition to his wife, Bud is survived by six children, Jerel (Deborah) Shively, Connie Dye and Terry (Jill) Shively, all of Columbia City, Dennis (RuthAnn) Shively of Churubusco and Mark (Lorie) Shively of Albion and Teresa (Scott) Perry of Wolf Lake; 26 Grandchildren; 7 Great Grandchildren; a brother, Larry (Sharon) Shively of Fort Wayne; and five sisters, Edith (Dale) Smith of Fort Wayne, June Targgart of Fort Wayne, Joyce (Paul) Munk of New Jersey, Lois Byer of Fort Wayne and Marcia (Russell) Wright of New York.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Glen Shively.

Services will be held at 11:00a.m. Thursday at Blue River Church of the Brethren, 3040 East 700 North, Columbia City with visitation one hour prior. The burial will be in Christian Chapel Cemetery, Merriam. Visitation will also be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the church.

Preferred memorials are to Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.

Arrangements are by Smith and Sons Funeral Home, Columbia City.
