Klahr L. "Red" Shellhouse, 61, of Fostoria, died Saturday morning, Sept. 25, 2004 at Fostoria Community Hospital.

A native of Tiffin, he was born July 3, 1943 to Kenneth and Vera (Heyman) Shellhouse. On Oct. 3, 1964, he married Lorraine J. Wright in Youngstown and she survives in Fostoria.

Red was an easy-going, fun-loving, and giving individual who had a great sense of humor. He was an avid golfer, bowler, and fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes, and liked playing cards, mainly euchre. He found his greatest enjoyment in spending time with his loving family, especially his pride and joy, granddaughter Lara.
