Obituary of John Schaeffer

It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of John Schaeffer during a Caribbean cruise on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at the age of 72.  Beloved husband and best friend of Susan (42 Years). Will be lovingly remembered by his brother Dave (Lynn), Step-son Rob, and Nephew Steven along with their families.  John was a long term member of the Pine Ridge Corvette Club. John was born in Toronto on January 17, 1946.  He was a graduate of the University of Western Ontario with a double major in English and Psychology.  He worked  with The Canada Revenue Agency for 30 years until his retirement in 2015, and will be missed by many of his colleagues and friends.
