Paul Shuttleworth, 93, of Dingmans Ferry, PA and Gulf Breeze, FL passed away on May 13, 2022 after a short illness. The son of William E. and Esther (Gustafson) Shuttleworth, Paul was raised in Chestnut Hill, PA and spent summers on Valcour Island, near Plattsburgh, NY. At Harvard, he studied history and was the high-scorer on the rifle team. During the Korean War, Paul served in the Air Force as a weapons mechanic, where he serviced everything from pistols to nuclear bombs.
Returning to Pennsylvania, Paul had a successful career as a manufacturing engineer working for companies including SPS and Knoll. Target shooting continued to be an important part of his life, and he was a regular match winner in the Philadelphia Marksman’s League and in Schuetzen competitions throughout the region. In 1988 he founded CPA Rifles which continues to produce single shot rifles of the highest quality, and Paul’s rifles and opinions have been sought-after across the country and around the world.
Paul is survived by his beloved wife Carolyn, their daughters and their husbands, Faith and Alex Carter of Woodland Park, CO, Gail and Jeff Rosalsky of Dingmans Ferry, PA and Kristin and Scott Amberson of Pensacola Beach, FL as well as his wonderful grandchildren Alexa, Jacob, Henry, Jace, Blair and Carlee.
