Obituary for Donald L. Shaffer

Donald L. Shaffer, 72, of Levittown, and formerly of Ansonville, passed away Friday August 11, 2017 at the St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne.

He was the beloved husband of the former Gloria A. Hartley with whom he shared 52 years pf marriage3. In addition to his wife, Don is survived by 2 children: Nicole M. Carey of Round Hill, VA and Darren L. Shaffer and wife Heather of Burgettstown and 5 grandchildren Hanna, Conor, Dylan, Madalyn and Damon.

In addition, he is survived by a brother Raymond Shaffer and wife Jeraldene of Perkasie and a sister Terry Zuschnitt and husband Paul of Bristol as well as several brothers-in-law and sisters-om-law: Eileen Shaffer of Bellevue, OH, Sara Shaffer of Bristol, Gayle and Michael Stephens of Levittown, Barbara Weaver pf Baltimore, OH, and Vincent Hartley of Prospect Park.

Several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends are left to cherish the time spent with Don.

Born in Kerrmoor, he was the son of the late Carl and Harriet (Freyer) Shaffer. He was preceded in death by his brothers Floyd C. Shaffer, Rudy W. Shaffer, Dale M. Shaffer and his infant sister Gale E. Shaffer.

After spending his children in Ansonville, Don was a graduate of Beccaria-Coalport-Irvona (BCI) High School. He was a resident of Levittown for 55 years.

Drafted into the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, he was extremely proud of being a marine. Don was employed by Pathmark as a meat cutter for 44 years. During that time, in addition to attending to his job responsibilities, he helped many people by completing random acts of kindness, hoping that others would do the same.

Don’s passions in life were spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and training dogs, especially beagles. There was no such thing as a bad day when he was hunting. He also enjoyed cooking, especially for family gatherings and game dinners. He was a member of American Legion Post 834 Fallsington and a very active member of Garden State Beagle Club.

Funeral Services for Don will be held at the Chester C. Chidboy Funeral Home, Inc. of Curwensville on Friday August 18, 2017 at 10:00 AM. Interment will be in the Fruit Hill Cemetery Ansonville.
