Paul H. "Pap" Shughart, 85, of Carlisle, passed away on Tuesday, June 29, 2010, at his home with his loving daughters by his side.

After retiring from Agway, Paul helped his sister and nephews at The Country Butcher Shop, Carlisle. He was a member of Bethany Evangelical Church in Carlisle and was a life member of the West Pennsboro Twp. Fire Co., where he volunteered much of his time.

One of my very favorite uncles!  I have many memories of him taking his daughter, Paula and I to the Carlisle Fair in the summers, as she and I shared many summer hours together as cousins.  Love to all my cousins, he will be missed.
