Lee Shroyer, 76, passed away May 4, 2019, at Zionsville Meadows.

Lee was born July 7th, 1942. He was the son of Scott and Florence Shroyer (Thompson). He was the husband of Judy C. (Ebert) Shroyer and the father of Allyson (Shroyer) Gutwein. He was father- in- law to Andrew Gutwein, step-grandfather to Jacqueline Gutwein and Tyler Gutwein, and step- great-grandfather to Diana Lyons.

Lee loved his family and engaged fully in hobbies like sailboating, watching the Chicago Bears, golfing, photography, the symphony and knitting. He enjoyed traveling in his motor home with his family to the Grand Canyon, National Parks and Canada. He loved to help others and often knitted many scarves just to give them away to nurses, doctors, girls home residents, family, friends and even strangers.

Lee worked for International Harvester near Chicago before moving to Springfield, Missouri where he was a founder of SRC- Springfield ReManufacturing Center. Lee, Judy and Allyson were members of Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, Missouri before Lee retired to Jamestown, Indiana to be near to family. Lee was a graduate of MacMurry College in Jacksonville, IL. Lee and his family founded a toy drive for Walter Reed Army Hospital and took toys to Washington DC for the children of wounded soldiers.

Lee cared for his family intensely and took great care to engage in the activities of his wife and daughter, including being a proud Delta Gamma father, putting his daughter through Indiana University, traveling to numerous camps and competitions, and much more. He attended activities of both his wife and daughter with unwavering support. Lee loved dogs and often showed his dogs in competition. Lee was preceded in death by his father, mother and brother, Larry Shroyer. Lee was well loved and will be greatly missed.

Graveside services will be held at 11 am Tuesday, May 7th in Jamestown, IN at the Jamestown IOOF cemetery. Strawmyer & Drury Mortuary, 2400 N. Lebanon Street, Lebanon, has been entrusted with the arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Humane Society of Boone County (boonecountyhumane.org) or the Herman B. Wells Chapter (Boone County) of Indiana University Alumni Scholarship Fund (myiu.org under IU Alumni Association Funds).

So sorry to hear of the passing of long time Indy Admirals member Lee Shroyer. You could not find a kinder man and more helpful member than Lee. Always generous with his time and willingness to help the club or a fellow member. Lee loved RC sailing and was a regular at our regattas and other events. We will miss you Lee. We are all better people for knowing you and the example you set.
