Rusty Shomaker

Roger Merrill “Rusty” Shomaker
Birth: Mar. 3, 1969 Ogden Weber County Utah, USA
Death: May 12, 1990

From Travis Higley
Rusty was killed in a headon collision while doing what he loved most, at that time. It happened in Sardine Canyon on his way to ref is first cycling race, around 7AM in the morning. Back then this was a 2-3 lane road, and was notorius for accidents of this nature. He had been riding bikes for a couple years, then decided to get into ref’ing the local events. He has been missed by all of us.

From Klayne Palmer
I wanted to say a word in remembrance. Rusty was a good, kind and fun person. It makes me smile to see a picture of him. That is how he always was–smiling.

He spent many hours after school on the south field at the request of Coach Flint, learning how to throw a javelin (occassionally John Jeppson would show up to investigate after finishing his own workout with the discus/shot). They were fun times. Rusty got pretty good at “throwing a stick” and he competed well at the track meets. Coach Flint was pleased. That year Clay Singley took state in the javelin for DHS. It was great. I remember Rusty well and I am grateful for those enjoyable memories. I reverently give my condolences to his family and loved ones. He was a good, fun person.
