Mason Edward Shrewsbury, Jr. age 50, of Kokomo Indiana, formerly of Elkton, MD passed away peacefully on Saturday May 16th 2020, surrounded by his family after a long battle with kidney cancer. He was born May 20, 1969 in Union Hospital Elkton, MD. He was the son of Mason Edward Shrewsbury Sr. and the late Anita Lynda (Angeletti) Shrewsbury.

Mr. Shrewsbury was a 1987 graduate of Elkton High school. Following graduation he attended Cecil Community College and went on to graduate with honors from Delaware State College in 2005, obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. In 1989, he began his career at Chrysler Corporation in Newark DE as an assembly line worker. He was a volunteer EMT / Firefighter in Middletown, DE from 1996 until 2003. In 2005 he was promoted to management. In 2007, he relocated to the Kokomo Indiana Transmission plant where he was promoted to Production Control Area Manager. In 2019, after 30 years of service, he retired from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) as a Logistics Technical Planner. He was a member of the Indiana Freemasons belonging to lodge #82 located in Russiaville, IN and a 32° Scottish Rite Mason of Indianapolis. He attended church at Oakbrook in Kokomo, IN. He recently started attending church at Bridgeway church in Kokomo, In.

Family was a very important part of his life and he loved spending time with his wife, daughters and their pets. Mason was known for his quick wit, Facebook memes, strong trivia knowledge (where his wife would call him Jeopardy), and his willingness to debate politics which he inherited from his grandfather Fred (he also hopes that he doesn’t vote Democrat this year since he was a staunch Republican). He had a love of sports, some of his favorite teams were the Baltimore Orioles, Miami Dolphins, Notre Dame and the Kokomo Jackrabbits. In addition to his Mother, Mason was preceded in death by his daughter, Scarlet Paige Shrewsbury, his grandparents Fernando “Fred” and Elizabeth Angeletti, Carney and Aileen Shrewsbury.

Survivors include his wife of 16 years and the love of his life, Jennifer Shrewsbury; daughters, Cheyenne Shrewsbury and Cameron Shrewsbury; Father, Mason Shrewsbury Sr.; Brother Bryan Shrewsbury and his wife Angela; Niece Melissa Shrewsbury; Nephew Tyler Shrewsbury; and multiple Aunts, Uncles and Cousins whom he loved dearly.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Mason's passing. We got hired together back in 1989, & became fast friends. Mason was liked by everyone. We stayed in touch throughout the years. We shared laughter, pain & tears. He was a Good Man, a Better Friend, a Great Husband & Loving Father. He will be missed. To his family I say: "stay encouraged, stay together & stay strong"
MATTHEW 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Amen

Pucci,
You will be missed by so many people. You have always had such a bright smile, even in dark days. You used laughter to bring joy not only to yourself but to others. Growing up you were more like a brother than a cousin. I will never forget the impact you have had on my life. I cherish the Shakespeare books you gave me when I was young, and will never forget all the wonderful times we have shared together. I pray you are at peace with your Angel. Love you, Always have, Always will.

I met Mason 10 years ago when I started at Chrysler. He taught me WCM and was a helping hand at all times. Over the years we kept in constant contact, always talking about politics and family. I consider myself fortunate to have Mason as a friend and visiting him during his sickness. He will be truly missed by everyone he met.

I’ve shared with Mason and Jennifer before our paths did not cross by accident. I met mason and Jennifer a few years ago when circumstances brought us together and feel blessed to have known him and the family. Such a good person and caring. I loved the political talks and won’t ever forget the day I Stopped by and he was sitting in his chair with his Trump flag draped over himself (like I would not notice). We thought a lot alike politically. His wit and knowledge and love for his family was admirable. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. He will surely be missed.

Sending my best wishes & the most peace to you and your family. You are such a beautiful person. Thank you for always bringing your family in to brighten up my day and I am looking forward to seeing you again and I would love to brighten up your day as you have done mine so many times. Namaste.

I had the pleasure of working with Mason Sr. For 30 plus years and then i was introduced to and worked with his son Mason Jr. What a great friend and co worker who was always quality oriented and concerned with the feelings of his co-workers. He excelled in everything he undertook and deserved all the promotions he achieved throughout his career. He was a loving family man who left us too soon. God keep you in his loving arms.

I met Mason soon after coming to work at Chrysler 10 years ago. He was one of the first to befriend me. He was such an all around good guy. He always talked about his family & clearly loved them fiercely. I admired his work ethic. He was one of the most determined people I’ve ever met. I got to work with him on his last assignment and it was so good working with him again. I am praying for comfort during this time of incredible loss.
