Howard Shupard Obituary

Howard Robert Shupard, 83, peacefully passed away on November 14, 2023, in West Chester, PA. Born to the late Ralph Raymond Shupard Jr. and the late Marguerite Lillian Maule in Broomall, PA.  Howard was a devoted husband to Tacie Shupard (1945-2016) for 49 joy-filled years.

In the 1960s, Howard proudly served on the USS Beatty with the US Navy and was an unwavering provider for his family throughout his life. Renowned for his handiness; if Howard couldn't fix something, it simply couldn't be fixed. Beyond his skilled craftsmanship, he was also an enthusiastic sportsman and a captivating storyteller.  If Howard was not fishing or hunting, he was telling stories about fishing and hunting.

Survived by his sons Keith Robert Shupard and Daniel Spencer Shupard (Dolores), grandson Ryan Jameson Shupard, along with brothers Arthur Shupard (Martha) and Ralph Shupard III, sister-in-law Juanita Rucker and his many nieces and nephews, Howard leaves behind a legacy of love and shared memories. He is predeceased by his brother Elwood Shupard (late Kathryn) and sister-in-law Sandra Shupard.
