Joseph W. Shuley Had auto parts store


Services for Joseph W. Shuley, retired vice president of Federal Auto Parts Inc., will be held at 10 a.m. today at St. John's Lutheran Church, 300 W. Maple Road, Linthicum.

Mr. Shuley, who was 73 and lived for more than 35 years on Lynvue Road in Linthicum, died Monday of heart disease at North Arundel Hospital.

He retired more than five years ago as one of the owners of the family auto parts store in Baltimore. He became associated with the store after serving in the Army during World War II. He reached the rank of master sergeant in the Army.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of Southern High School and the Baltimore College of Commerce.

In the late 1930s, he sang as Todd Hunter on radio station WCBM-AM.

Mr. Shuley was a member of the Ben Franklin Lodge of the Masons.

He is survived by his wife, the former Erna E. Griffin; three daughters, Virginia Krieger of Pound Ridge, N.Y., and Karen Bogdan and Patricia Smith, both of Linthicum; a brother, Kennard P. Shuley of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.
