Vaughan Schuler, 82, Adair County, KY native (1937-2019)

Columbians Jerry and Pat Vaughan shared this obituary of Adair County native, Vaughan Schuler.

Robert Vaughan Schuler passed away peacefully in his home on December 29, 2019 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the age of 82. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

Vaughan is survived by his wife Marilyn, his children Christine Schuler-McCoin (Dan McCoin) in Detroit, Texas, Kate Schuler (happily single), Cairo, Egypt and William Schuler (Shirell Schuler), Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is also survived by grandchildren Monica McCoin-McAvoy (Mike McAvoy), Austin, Texas, Haley Schuler-McCoin, Beirut, Lebanon, and Trevor McCoin, Detroit, Texas.

Vaughan was born on May 7, 1937 in Louisville, Kentucky to Eula Vaughan and Jake Schuler. He graduated from Campbellsville College in 1965 with a degree in education. He married his wife Marilyn while serving in the military in Karlsruh, Germany. After moving to Milwaukee, Vaughan began his teaching career at CATC as a special education teacher. Vaughan and his family enjoyed weekend camping trips to Door County, bike rides, fishing, and trips to Kentucky and Texas. He was a generous individual who loved reading westerns, spy thrillers, and enjoyed shopping at rummage sales.

His final wish was to help further the education of students in the field of science by donating his body to the Medical College of Wisconsin. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
