Timothy Luke Shanks, age 53, of Barry, IL passed away on Monday, August 30, 2021 at his home. He was born in Pittsfield, IL on November 13, 1967 to Paul and Judith Fuhrman Shanks. Tim married Precios Grace Cabodillo on March 22, 2016 and she survives.

He grew up in Milton, IL and attended East Pike and Pittsfield schools. Tim started out working in construction and worked at Pillsbury in Hannibal for several years. He later became a Corrections Officer for a few years and then became an over the road truck driver for over 20 years. Tim was of Christian faith and loved the outdoors; fishing, squirrel hunting and  he enjoyed mushrooming. He was a good husband and father who took pride in working on his house. Tim was kind and gentle with a big heart; he never met anyone that wasn’t a friend and was always there to offer a helping hand. He loved his children and worked hard to provide for his family. He was also great at helping around the house, happy to help with laundry and cooking, especially when it was time to BBQ. He was a perfect husband and father and will be deeply missed by his family.

Tim is survived by his loving wife, Precios Shanks; son, Timothy C. Shanks of Barry, IL; daughters, Aliaza Anuran Shanks, JaLisa Jean Shanks, Cheyanne Dawn Shanks and Jamie Lynn Shanks, all of Barry, IL; three grandchildren, Anna Joyce, James Dean and Jackson Dale; mother, Judith Shanks; two brothers, Paul Ledru (Carol) Shanks of Barry, IL and Shannon Dean Shanks of Louisiana, MO; and two sisters, Milissa Dawn (Ron) Bland of Brighton, IL and Charity Ann (Steve) Campbell of Quincy, IL.
