Clarence “Jr.” Shaffer, 68, went to be an angel with God. He was a wonderful husband, father and Pappa to his wife Debbie of 48 years and his children, Michael and Terri Shaffer, Dena and Eric Larew, Nichole and Jason Carrico, nine grandchildren and two great grandsons.
He was born March 9, 1952, in Rowlesburg, a son of late Clarence and Myrtle Funk Shaffer.
He never knew a stranger and never saw a child he didn’t talk or play with, an avid hunter, fisherman, enjoyed camping and loved softball. He was a retired coal miner from Leer Coal in Grafton. Loved being a coal miner and a very hard worker. May he walk with the angels now and watch over us.
He is also survived by five brothers, David Shaffer and wife, Darlene of Bruceton Mills, Mike Shaffer and wife, Nancy of Terra Alta, James Wagner and wife, Sandra and Raymond Wagner, all of Rowlesburg and Ralph Wagner and wife, Daphene of Reedsville; two sisters, Beverly Shaffer of Rowlesburg and Tammy Wagner of Terra Alta.
He was also preceded in death by a brother, John Shaffer and a sister, Clara Wiles.
Browning Funeral Home is assisting the family with cremation service.
A Celebration of Life, for Clarence, will be held at a later date
