Robert Ross “Neeb” Shafer Jr., 79, of Curwensville, passed away Tuesday January 26, 2021 at his residence due to complications from COVID-19.

Born October 28, 1941 in Clearfield, he was the son of Robert Ross Sr. and Lillie Mae (Faulkner) Shafer.

Also surviving are numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and grandnieces and grandnephews. He will also be sadly missed by his beagles Bitsy and Charlie and his cat Jack.

The family would also like to thank his caregiver, Lacey Lesveque, for her dedicated service.
