Michael C. Shane


Michael C. Shane, age 73 of Connersville, died Monday, July 29, 2019, at University Hospital in Cincinnati. Born October 9, 1945, in Batesville, he is the son of Delores (nee Bruns) and Carl Shane. He never got to know his natural father, who was killed in World War II prior to Michael's birth. His mother would remarry and he was raised by his stepfather Cletus "Poppy" Kellerman.
He worked at the Ford factory in Connersville 32 years before retiring in 1999.
He was very proud of his daughters. They spoke of how he liked sharing stories with them about his life adventures, had a wonderful sense of humor and was a bit of a jokester. He was an exceptional athlete who prided himself in excelling on and off the ball field and liked sharing those accomplishments with them as well.
A life well lived, he developed many enduring friendships that lasted a lifetime.
Michael is survived by his daughters Danielle Shane of Oldenburg, Chantel (Bob Jr.) Weiler of Batesville, Mandy Shane of Metamora; sister Becky (Lloyd) Schutte of Batesville; brothers Ronnie (Ginger) Kellerman of Milhousen, Dave (Brenda) Kellerman of Texas; and 11 grandchildren.
At Michael's request, services and burial will be private. For online condolences, go to www.weigelfh.com.
