Gospel preacher.

He was married November 23, 1893 to Mary Ann Lindsey who preceded him in death May 10, 1950. They have one son, Claude Shook of Charleston, Miss. On March 6. 1952, he married Allene Mathis who still resides at their home In Belmont. Brother Shook was a businessman, teacher, preacher, and elder of the church at Belmont. He attended David Lipscomb College in the early years of his life. Most of his preachIng was done in and around Belmont. He was loved, highly esteemed and respected In that area and in other places where he had worked. He had come in contact with many of the great preachers of his lifetime. It was a pleasure and an Inspiration to me to have known Brother Shook and to have worked with him the last two years of his life while I preached at Belmont. I will long remember the many nights I sat in his room and we studied together the word of God. W. C. Quillen, Roy Vaughn, and W. J. Johnson made the remarks at the funeral service in the presence of a host of brethren and friends. His body was laid to rest in the Belmont Cemetery. Survivors Include his wife, Allene Mathis Shook; one son, Claude, and three grandchildren. May we live faithful and true to our God as did this brother. --- James D. Burns, Gospel Advocate, 1957, 350.
