Raymond Joseph (Bud) Shanley


Surrounded by his loving family and close friend Ron DeCarlo, Raymond Joseph (Bud) Shanley passed away peacefully at his home in Berlin, Maryland, on Aug. 17, 2023, from cancer.

He was 83 years old.

Born in Washington, D.C. on Feb.10, 1940, Bud was the son of Raymond Joseph Shanley Sr. and his wife Irene Butler Shanley.

He attended Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. for two years before entering the Augustinian minor seminary where he completed his high school education at the Augustinian Academy in Staten Island, New York. He remained in the seminary for seven more years, during which time he earned degrees in English and philosophy from Villanova University.

Upon leaving the seminary, Bud taught history, Latin, and English at Archbishop Carroll High School while earning a graduate degree in international law and relations at Catholic University of America. He always felt a deep debt of gratitude to the Augustinian community for the life-long impact they had on his spiritual, personal and professional life.

In 1968, he entered the executive training program at Chemical Bank in New York, which led to a lifetime career in banking and trade finance. At the time of his death, he was CFO for Second Factor, Inc.

Bud is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Jean Neubeck Shanley; his beloved children, Suzanne Savage (Scott), Raymond Shanley (Julianne), Kevin Shanley (Melissa), and Jean Marie Shanley; his treasured grandchildren, Caroline, Sarah and Colin Savage, Sophie, Annika and Gavin Shanley, and Rutger and Connor Shanley; his sisters, Irene Shanley and Patricia Ray (Ed); and numerous cousins; nieces; and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents; his sisters, Doris Earle and Ann Hoyle; his brothers-in-law, George Earle, John Hoyle and Jim McKnight; his sister-in-law Kitsy Neubeck; and niece Annie Neubeck.

For those of us whose lives he dearly touched over the years, Bud will be remembered for his deep spirituality, his integrity and work ethic, his deep love and loyalty to family and friends, and his delightful Irish sense of humor.

A funeral mass will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, Sept. 8, at Holy Savior Catholic Church in Ocean City.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Augustinian Fund for the Care of Sick and Elderly Friars, 214 Ashwood Road, Villanova, PA 19085, in memory of Raymond J. Shanley.
