Arizona native Lemuel Coover Shattuck, Jr. passed away peacefully on September 24, 2013, in Tucson. Born on October 13, 1928 in Bisbee, Arizona, he was the only child of Lemuel Coover Shattuck, Sr. and Mary Wilson Shattuck. Lem, as he was known to his family and friends, was a graduate of Bisbee High School and later graduated from the University of Arizona in 1951 with a B.A. degree in Business Administration. He served in the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations during the Korean War and as a First Lieutenant in the Air Force Reserves until 1958. In his formative years, Lem regaled family and friends by performing magic as "Lembardo the Great"! Lem was a lifelong businessman and owned the LCS Guest Ranch on North Oracle Road before opening S & W Motors on East Speedway, which operated for more than 20 years. He was a lifetime rancher and a dedicated member of the Tucson Rodeo Parade Committee until his passing. Lem was an accomplished aviator and deep-sea fishing enthusiast, and greatly enjoyed many weeks on his treasured Chris Craft boat in San Carlos, Mexico. With his easy manner and ready wit, Lem was adored by virtually everybody he came into contact with. He was a man of the West that he loved so much. He is preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Wanda Britten Shattuck, and is survived by his children, Lemuel Shattuck, III, Mark Shattuck, Melissa Shattuck and Pamela Shattuck Thyret; son-in-law, Russell Thyret and daughter-in-law, Cheryl Shattuck and his grandchildren, Heather, Shea, Sarah, Rebecca and Lemuel, as well as five great-grandchildren. He is also survived by nieces, Dorothy Fathauer Arnaud and Mari Fathauer Martin and their children. He is dearly missed by his beloved dog Sissy. His family offers its thanks to Lem's wonderful caregivers. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum, P.O. Box 14, Bisbee, Arizona, 85603 or the Tucson Rodeo Parade Committee, Inc., P.O. Box 1788, Tucson, Arizona, 85702. Arrangements by BRING'S BROADWAY CHAPEL. bringfuneralhome.com
