H.W. (Bill) Shuler was born January 27, 1938, and grew up on a farm South of Corning, Iowa. He was the son of Myron and Gladys (Brown) Shuler. He entered into rest March 7, 2022, at the age of 84 years. Bill attended rural country school and graduated from Corning High School.
Bill married Carol Moore, his high school sweetheart, on August 24, 1958, at Fairview Church. They farmed south of Corning and raised three children. They were privileged to share over 63 years of marriage together.
Bill loved farming and spent his life raising livestock and crops. He was small in stature but strong, with a tender spot for the baby lambs, pigs, and calves that often made their way into the kitchen for Carol to warm. That soft spot quickly turned to spoiling his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Grandpa was determined to teach all the littles to stick out their tongues. When Bill and Carol retired to their house in Corning, he somehow managed to continue raising livestock and crops, but this time it was farming the yard and feeding his birds and squirrels.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Olin Shuler and sister-in-law Barbara Shuler, and granddaughter Kari Lee Shuler.
He is survived by his wife Carol; their three children, son Bill (Lynda) Shuler of Corning, son John (Dawn) Shuler of Corning, and daughter Catherine (Pat) Connor of Lenexa, KS; grandchildren Bill and Jill Shuler of Brooks, Aimee and Klint Bissell of Bedford, Stacie and Colton McNinch of Rochester, MN, Stephanie and Ryan Mayer of Harmony, MN, Patrick and Kristen Connor of Kansas City, KS, Katie and Chris Mushrush of Elmdale, KS, Dustin Shuler and Morgan Shuler of Corning; great grandchildren Braydon Bissell, Tucker Bissell, Kyle Shuler, Payton Shuler, Addison Shuler, Elyne McNinch, Piper McNinch, and Carter Mayer; nieces, nephews and friends.
