Dennis A, Schaffer, of Norwalk, Ohio, son of Doris and John Schaffer, passed away Thursday at Fisher-Titus Hospital after a brief illness.

He is also preceded in death by his grandparents, Leonard and Francis Schaffer, grandmother and grandfather, Raymond and Marguerite White, uncles, Fr. Arnold Schaffer, Fred, (Dorthey) Pete (Pauline), Joe (Marianne), Bernard (Mary), his aunts, Sister Mary Lenarda, Sister Francis Marie, Magaret (Chet Wasiniak), and Ophelia.
He leaves his son Dennis Schaffer Jr. (Melissa Buurma); his grandchildren, Makinley 16, Teagan 13, and Bryar 10.
