He was born Nov. 23, 1943 in Ekalaka, MT, a son of Evelyn Margaret Carter and Robert Melvin Shuffield. He graduated from Carter County High School in 1962. He also served in the United States Army from 1963 to 1969 and stationed in Germany for 3 years. He married Maria Munoz Beroiza on November 18, 1977 in Chicago, Illinois and together they had two children. Robert did various jobs after the army and ended up in Chicago, Illinois where he lived for about 10 years and met his wife. He moved to Greybull, WY and took a job with Getter Trucking doing heavy haul, which moved the family to Billings, MT, Lufkin, TX, and eventually to Salt Lake City, UT. Robert decided to take a job with Werner Enterprises and stayed with them until he retired in July 2013, earning the achievement of 2 million accident free miles with them. He enjoyed traveling with his job and was able to visit many friends and family members throughout the years. Robert loved spending time with his 3 grandchildren, attending the Days of 85 in his hometown of Ekalaka, MT and catching up with all of his friends and family. He will be remembered for his big heart, kindness, sense of humor, and his many, many stories.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Benjamin Shuffield. We would also like to thank the staff at Avalon West Nursing Home who saw that he was comfortable in his final days.
