Richard Harold Shuler, 75, of Mt. Holly passed away November 20, 2019 at the Robin Johnson Hospice House in Dallas.  He was born on December 16, 1943 to the late Ed and Mollie Crisp Shuler.  He is also preceded in death by his brothers, Junior, Calvin, and Clayton Shuler and sisters, Mae Brown, Hazel Cogsdill, Zelma Wright, and Edie Cowart.  Richard was a U.S. Army Veteran.  After 30 years of service, Richard retired from the assembly plant of Ford Motor Co. in Michigan.  He had a passion for making donations to help with the Shriners Hospital and St. Judes and the family asks in lieu of flowers for donations to be made to either charity in Richard's memory.

Survivors include his sisters, Genevie Cassada and Marie McClure; several nieces and nephews; and a special friend, Marlin Davis.
