He is survived by the love of his life & wife of 64 years, Patricia (Miller) Shutler; sons, Robert M. (Margaret) Shutler and David L. (Mary) Shutler, both of Moundsville; a sister, Virginia (Frank) Pethtel of Fish Creek; step-siblings, Richard and Barbara Maine; grandchildren, Sara (Samer) Melhem, Emily (Josh) Daugherty, Cindy (Dylan) Mercer, Brad (fiance’ Laken Jones) Shutler, Tim Shutler, Greg Shutler and Samantha (Garrett) Meggs; great-grandchildren, Ava “Poppy”, Nikelle, Katherine, Hallie, Lincoln and Graham; several nieces and nephews; and Bob’s favorite cat, Ozzie.
