Here is the obituary:
“Marco Shemwell, 4, passed away on Monday, September 17, 2018 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He was born in Lexington, Kentucky, on August 25, 2014, to Benjamin David and Elizabeth Gilpin Shemwell. He attended preschool at Flutterby Discovery Center, and was a member of Calvary Christian Church in Winchester. Marco had a big personality and smile that wouldlight any room. His spirit was full of joy and captivated anyone that had the pleasure of knowing him. His love for life, family and Jesus was infectious. Marco spent most of his time playing Legos and cars with his big brother, as well as dance parties in the kitchen. Marco enjoyed music, singing and playing his guitar. He also loved Batman and Kentucky Football, always cheering for the blue team. He will be truly missed.”
Kentucky football head coach Mark Stoops and other members of the team/coaching staff will be honorary pallbearers.
“Honorary pallbearers will be Coach Stoops and the University of Kentucky Football Team and Coaching Staff, officers Montoya and Taylor and other members of the UK Police Department, UK Health Care and PICU team and all other first responders who helped in the families’ time of need. The Shemwell Family would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response of prayers, support and love during this difficult time.”
Once again, prayers from the KSR family during this absolutely devastating time.
