BLACK CREEK -- Kenneth Deal Shuman, 84, of Black Creek, passed away Tuesday, February 8, 2018, after a short illness. Kenneth was born August 12, 1933, to Leon and Florence Shuman in Bulloch County, Ga., the third of four children. Kenneth served in the U.S. Navy from March 1953 thru 1957. He also served in the Air Force Reserves until December 1, 1990. He had an extreme respect for all forms of military and was always quick to salute, stand or respectfully acknowledge any military officer or event. Kenneth was married to Jeanne Smith from June 14, 1959, until her death on February 16, 2002. He married Margatene "Margie" Pevey on October 1, 2007, and enjoyed the rest of his life with her.

He was elected as a director on the Canoochee EMC board in September 1999 and enjoyed serving on this board through December 31, 2010. He had a strong work ethic, strived to do his best on every job he undertook and expected his children to do the same. When he got older and turned his ventures over to his children, he encouraged them to always develop businesses that would benefit the community. Kenneth loved the Lord and joined Fellowship Primitive Baptist Church on December 11, 1960. He was baptized a few days later in the Ogeechee River on Christmas Day.
