Robert J. Tishner

Robert J. “Bob” Tishner, age 84, of Tipton, Indiana passed away on Monday October 12, 2015 at his home. He was born on September 7, 1935 in Tipton, Indiana to George and Eva (Day) Tishner. Robert married Adrienne (Townsend) on June 27, 1959 and she survives.

Robert proudly served his country in the National Guard as well as the United States Air Force. Robert worked for Coca Cola for many years in Elwood and eventually transferred to the Kokomo location. He also worked for Townsend Tree Company and the Stokley Canning Factory. In his free time he enjoyed being able to relax out on the water while fishing. Robert took great pride in gardening and shared that love with his wife. He was always thrilled to be surrounded by family; his grandchildren held a very special place in his heart.

Robert is survived by his wife, Adrienne of Tipton, IN; his children Denise Hittle (Bill Jenkins) of Goldsmith, IN, Melissa (Jim) Pilakowski of Yuma, AZ, and Richard Tishner (David Briscoe) of Largo, FL. Also surviving are his grandchildren Robin (Steve) Fendley of Prescott Valley, AZ, Sami (Tim) Holmgren of Kokomo, IN, Vincent Robert (Ashley) Pilakowski of Stafford, VA, Zane Pilakowski of Yuma, AZ, and Kara Murray of Goldsmith, IN as well as Great-Grandchildren Jayden and Donovan Fendley of Prescott Valley, AZ, and Ella Jo Holmgren of Kokomo, IN. He is survived by his siblings Barbara Tishner, Patricia Lukens, Peggy Tishner, and James Tishner all of Tipton, IN; and his very special friend Betty Jo Heath that always gave her time to help Robert and his family in any way that she could.

Robert is preceded in death by his parents, and siblings; Mary Tishner, Martha Lujon, George Tishner Jr., Jean Alice Tishner, Lucille Tishner, Betty Hause, Helen Moore, Jerry Tishner; great-grandson Ethan Fendley; and two sons Robert Scott Tishner and John W. Tishner.

His family wants to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the nurses and staff at I.U. Hospice. They were a godsend to the family in their time of need.

Shawn E.

McLochlin

Shawn E. McLochlin, age 42, Logansport, passed away at 3:25 p.m., on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, in his residence.

Born in Logansport on October 5, 1973, he was the son of Donald E. McLochlin and Brenda Berkshire (McLochln) Clark.

On September 5, 1998, in Logansport, he was married to Kim Carroll, who survives, in Logansport.

A 1992 graduate of Lewis Cass High School, he was a certified welding instructor at the Century Career Center at Logansport High School. He and Kim were also the former owners of Bolin’s Donut Shop.

He attended Life Gate Church.

Shawn was the most wonderful husband and an incredible father, never wanting to be a ‘good daddy’, but instead, a ‘Godly daddy”. He was a friend, on call 24/7. He attended the Great Banquet #27 in 2010, loving his relationship with the Lord, and encouraged others to follow the way.

He enjoyed “ice riding” at Lake Cicott, deer hunting, boating, bass fishing, and camping with his family and friends.

Hundreds of kids would say he was their “coach” in football, baseball, or softball. His time was spent on the field, not in the stands. To his beloved students at the LCSC Century Career Center Welding Program, Mr. McLochlin wasn’t your “coach” or “teacher”, he was the Instructor of Life Lessons.

Shawn loved to ride and fly, participating in, and following, the AMA-Motocross Circuit.

Kim knew that Tuesday, October 20th would be the day he would join her mom, Carol; exactly three years to the day of her passing.

Above all, his relationship with the Lord was of utmost importance. Welcome to heaven, #839.
