Earl D. Shaffer III Obituary
Earl D. Shaffer III of Chadds Ford Earl D. Shaffer III passed away suddenly on Monday, August 24, 2015. Born in Upper Darby, he was predeceased by his parents, Earl D. Shaffer, Jr. and Lois K. Shaffer Zduniak. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer M. Shaffer, with whom he celebrated 30 wonderful years of marriage earlier this year. Following graduation from Haverford High School, Earl went on to earn a B.S. in Computer Science as well as a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, both from West Chester University. He was a self-employed Database Administrator, and enjoyed the traveling that his career brought him. He dedicated his life to being a loving husband and father. More than anything, he loved his sons, Blair and Christian. He considered them his greatest gifts in life, and nothing brought him greater joy than being their father and watching them grow and explore their own gifts. Earl had a quick wit, and loved making people laugh. He was a music aficionado and a gifted musician and composer, playing both the guitar and keyboards. Earl had a strong and abiding faith in God which deepened year by year as life and health challenges came his way. He was a charter member of The Power Place Church in Kennett Square, Pa. In addition to his wife, Jennifer, he is survived by sons Blair and Christian, both at home. He is also survived by two sisters, Alison Siano (Ralph) of Sewell, N.J., and Karen Bianchi (Richard) of Spartanburg, S.C., as well as brother and sister-in-law Jim McDonald (Victoria) of West Chester, Pa. and sister-in-law Judy McDonald of Spring City, Pa. as well as many loving nieces and nephews in Pa., N.J., Conn., Mass., S.C. and Utah. A visitation/funeral service will be held at The Power Place Church, 576 Rosedale Road, Kennett Square, Pa, on Friday, August 28 beginning at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, and if friends should so desire, the family would gratefully accept contributions for Blair and Christian’s college educations: The Shaffer Family, P.O. Box 169, Chadds Ford PA 19317. Online condolences may be made by visiting www.foundsfuneralhome.com.
