    Dear Shemwell family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Your family are in my prayers. I have known Harold from when we worked together at Lazarus/Macys to being a super fan of his band. He will be missed very much.

Harold Ray Shemwell, 56, of Evansville, IN born on September 16, 1965.

A proud graduate of North High School 1983. Harold was creative from the start as his first time on the drums was at age 10. While collaborating with friends to create Soulunique, he was able to display his singing talents and share his gift with the tri-state. Ever the competitive athlete, he sought to bring out the best and push you to reach for your full potential. He greatly enjoyed cooking and sports. Family and friends who became like family were of the utmost importance to him.

Preceded in death by his parents Virginia and Harrison Shemwell, sister Jeanetta Mimms, and brother Steven Shemwell.

He is survived by his loving wife of 26 years Frances Shemwell, (son) Darius, (his babygirl) Aaliyah and (eldest son) Lemarceo Shemwell – grandchildren Payton, Cameron, Caysen; Brother Harrison Edward Shemwell and Sister Jennifer Shemwell. A host of nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 11am until the time of service at 1pm on Thursday, April 28th, 2022, at Sunset Funeral Home with a burial to directly follow at Sunset Memorial Park.
