Obituary

Robert Clayton Shurlow passed away on January 10, 2019 but lives on in the hearts of his family and in the fields and woods of the farm he loved. Born February 3, 1937 to Clayton and Frances Shurlow on the farm he loved and worked his entire life.
Robert was in 4-H, FFA and was a member of MMPA and NRA.
HE loved hunting; the love of hunting was inherited by his kids and his grandson Levi Shriber, who is known for his ability to get the biggest bucks on the farm. He shared his love of farming with his family who has carried on this legacy.
Robert married SuAnn Anders on September 7th, 1957. Together they raised 3 children, Jeanie Shurlow, Kelly (Mike) Shriber and Jim Shurlow. He is survived by his wife and three children, Grandchildren Michaela (Chad) Henry, Levi (Danielle) Shriber, and Devin Mckee, and five beautiful great grandchildren. The little Shriber herd, Paisley, Cole, Sophie, Chloe, and Natalie. Robert is also survived by his sisters Dorothy Flint and Cathy (Dave) White. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Marlyn Shurlow and sister Patty Burd. And his mother and father in law Laurence and Arloa Anders.
Family and farming was Bob’s life, a life he loved and worked very hard at. The farm was his love, not his job. Robert was a dairy farmer, raised beef cows, sheep, and was known as a hardworking man for the long hours he was out working the fields and could be seen with one of his special dogs riding with him, but to him it wasn’t work as much as it was doing what he loved. He loved Case tractors and put many long hours on them. He worked his tractors, but also pulled them in tractor pulls, bringing home trophies. Picnics at the pond, pizza parties when spring planting was done or harvest was over with his family were special to all of us. Christmas, birthday parties and Sunday dinners, any reason for the family to be together are all treasured memories. He shared many stories of his parents and stories of growing up with us which are so cherished. So many memories of a great man. Rest easy, the chores are done. Ride off into the hills on your 730 Dad, we love you.

SuAnn, Jeanie, and Jim: Our prayers are with you in this difficult time. Bob was such a great person so grounded in the farm and family. His kindness was exhibited in Jim and Jeanie whom I had the pleasure of having in Ag classes. Bob will be long remembered by all who had the opportunity to have known him. God Bless. George and Inez Hubka
