    It was an honor to have been grades 7-12 principal at Naylor High School when Ron served as basket and baseball coach as well as a very motivational classroom teacher!!! He was tops!!! No one knew the fundamentals of those two sports better than Ron Shemwell, and no one was better at teaching those fundamentals than Ron!!! The students and staff loved Ron, and we all knew immediately that he was one among when it came to his dedication to his profession!!! He was a great role model for students and their parents, and was held in high esteem by the entire citizenship of the Naylor community!!! Ron Shemwell was a gifted human being and a man with many skills and talents which he wisely utilized to teach, lead and honor those he knew and those with whom he worked!!! To those of us who knew and worked with Ron Shemwell, it quickly became evident that only our Devine Creator could fashion such a person!!! It makes us, now, believe, too, that that Devine Creator has called Ron home to lead and teach His legions of Angels how to fly and involve themselves in Heavenly Sports!!!

    Ron made a huge impact with his warm and friendly personality. He was a true gentleman. We will miss him at The Village on the Park Bentonville!

    Ron Shemwell will be missed by so many people. He touched so many lives as a teacher and a dear friend! I addressed him as Mr. Shemwell because he was my teacher, and I thought he was one of the best, he always treated everyone with deep respect! My family always addressed him as Ronnie! Our families spent some very special times together!
    Cindy and Steve, I know that you now have lost both of your parents, but the legacy they left for you is so wonderful!! All of your families will be in my thoughts and prayers!

    So sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. He was a student athlete and coach that I looked up to and enjoyed visiting. His mother was my teacher and his dad our cotton gin manager. Great guy and great family. Sam Atwell

    I will miss Ron and he always seemed happy whenever you saw him. I talked to him on the phone 2 months ago and he wanted me and Becky and I to drive down to Bentonville have lunch with him. I told him we would try to do that after the first of the year but we didn’t have enough time to make it. He was a great couch and a very caring person. Praying for comfort for his family during this sad time.

    I knew you through Neelyville schools and your mom and dad cotton gin. Always so nice. I know mom and dad ( Harry and Anna Kimberlin thought the world of you and your family, through their time in Neelyville on the farm raising cotton and beans. Great times but hard times too.
    So sorry for your loss.
