Travis Allen Shull Obituary

Travis Allen Shull,  age 53, of Sherrodsville, Ohio rode on to his next journey on May 5, 2023, doing one of the things that brought him his greatest joy.
Travis attended Susquehanna Schools and graduated from Indian Valley North. Following graduation, he proudly served in the United States Navy where he traveled the world and learned his trade. Prior to his death he served as a Power Plant Operations Manager.

Travis was preceded in Death by his father Larry Allen Shull, paternal grandparents Joe & Marjorie Shull and maternal grandparents Paul & Gene Gaeckler.

He is survived by his wife Maryse Shull; mother Cynthia Gaeckler Rose and husband Bob Rose of Dallastown, Pennsylvania; brother Shannon Shull of Oberlin, Ohio; sister Tiffany Spence Hackler and husband Adam Hackler of York, Pennsylvania; nephews Trevor & Hunter Shull and Blake Hackler; and special girls Pixie who waited ‘fur’vently for him to come home from work each day and SpookieBoo (nicknamed PukieBoo by Travis) who would always oblige with a coughed-up hairball.
Travis had a huge personality, living every moment to the fullest extent possible. He never met a stranger he would not talk to; he made friends everywhere he went. Travis loved to make people laugh even if he just met you. His professional work ethic was dutiful and diligent. Punctuality was a hallmark - he never liked being late to any appointment; whether personal or professional. His favorite times were spent outdoors hunting, fishing, camping, kayaking, and riding motorcycles but also sharing his wisdom with family and friends on how to be a master sportsman like he was. He enjoyed storytelling, spending quality time with friends traveling as long as there was a hot tub and a cold brew. 

A one-hour graveside visitation will be observed commencing at 12:00 Noon, Friday, May 12, 2023 in the veteran's section of West Lawn Cemetery in Newcomerstown, Ohio.  A graveside service officiated by Rev.
