Mr. Enloe was born Aug. 20, 1957, in Hillsboro, to Ivan Kenneth and Dorothy Mae (Ingles) Enloe. He married Sheila Jean Holmes on Sept. 22, 1979, at Assembly of God in Sorento, and she survives.

He graduated from Greenville High School with the class of 1975, and then worked for Roller Derby for many years. He was currently employed by Eaton Corp. in Troy.

Mr. Enloe farmed the old family homestead, and he especially loved the animals that he raised.

He had a great sense of humor and was a great storyteller. He had a passion for raising Border Collies, and he traveled around the U.S. competing in many dog trials. As he said, “I was the Michael Jordan of sheep herding!” He also loved traveling in the mountains and listening to “The Hayride” on WGEL.

In addition to his wife of 40 years, Mr. Enloe is survived by his daughters, Jenny (husband Aaron) Allison of Charleston and Justine (husband Bob) Gamblin of Festus, MO; his grandchildren who adored him, Eleanor, London and Violet Allison and Hunter Gamblin; sister, Dena (husband Kenneth) Smith of Sorento; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Memorials may be directed to Sorento School, 510 South Main Street, Sorento, IL 62086.
