Peter John Lashbrook

Peter John Lashbrook was born January 11, 1989, in Clarion, Iowa, the son of the Rev. Steven J. and Dr. Laurie E. (Hansen) Lashbrook. Over the years of his life he lived in Clarion, Iowa, Crete, Nebraska, Kent, Ohio, Manistee, Michigan, and Yankton, South Dakota. He attended Middle and High School in Manistee, Michigan, where he played varsity football and baseball and was active in musical theatre productions and music programs. He graduated from Manistee High School in 2007. Following graduation, Pete attended West Shore Community College in Scottville, Michigan for three years. He had most recently been enrolled in the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, studying Social Work and Criminal Justice. He was an avid, responsible hunter, enjoying duck, pheasant and white tail deer hunting. He was especially proud of participating in and completing three Tough Mudder competitions in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan and of being a Godparent to Quillen Hansen of Mankato, Minnesota. Twice he participated in mission trips to Haiti, with Helping Hands for Haiti, an organization begun and led by his uncle, Dave Hansen. The first trip was in 2010, just after the earthquake that rocked the impoverished island nation.

Pete was a member of the First Congregational Church of Manistee, United Church of Christ, and of two hunting conservation groups, Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever. He worked a variety of jobs following high school and particularly enjoyed working at Wahr Hardware in Manistee and at the South Dakota Human Services Center in Yankton, where he was a certified nurse's aide. He taught himself to play the guitar, banjo and ukulele and was a devoted Beatles fan. He enjoyed performing for the annual Manistee Rotary Show and at West Shore he participated in many musical theater productions and was a member of the Collegiates show choir. He died on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at his parent's home in Akron, Ohio after a long, draining battle with colon cancer. A Memorial Prayer Service for Peter will be held Sunday, December 27 at 1:30 P.M. at Calvary Lutheran Church in Irene, with Irene United Methodist Pastor Judy Sayler officiating. Services were also held in Manistee, Michigan and Akron, Ohio. Burial will be at Hillcrest Cemetery in Irene. Peter is survived by his parents, Steven and Laurie Lashbrook, his sister, Kirsten Lashbrook and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Kenneth and Mildred Lashbrook, and maternal grandparents, Earl and Edith Hansen. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Anthony Funeral Home in Akron.

Memorial gifts should be made to Helping Hands for Haiti, 45406 295th Street, Irene, SD 57037 or to the , for Lynch Syndrome research.
