Canon L. Roper Shamhart

January 29, 1926 - July 30, 2017


The Rev. Canon Lewis Roper Shamhart entered into eternal rest on July 30, 2017 at the age of 91.

Rev. Canon L. Shamhart served faithfully for many years in our diocese, perhaps most notably at St. Mark's in Jackson Heights where he was the rector from 1960-1991. He was active on diocesan committees and commissions, including the Board of Examining Chaplains (1962-1980), and served as interim priest at several of our parishes after his retirement.
