Robert “Bob” James Schaffer, 78, died Monday, Jan. 16, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. He was greatly loved by his children, grandchildren, sister, and their families. The son of William and Mary (Welsh) Schaffer, Bob was born on Oct. 6, 1944, in Youngstown, OH. He graduated from Youngstown State University as a chemical engineer. On June 17, 1967 he married Carol Yank. He started his employment with DuPont the same year and later transferred to sales. He found much joy, friendship, and success during his career with DuPont, and enjoyed sharing his many fond memories.

Preceded in death by his brother and friend Bill (Gerry) Schaffer. Bob will always be remembered for the love he showed his family, especially his grandchildren, who were bright lights in his life. He cheered from the sidelines of many games, he took meticulous care of his home and yard, he enjoyed logic and word puzzles, and he loved to make people laugh with his witty jokes and fun loving sense of humor. Bob always had kind words of support and encouragement for those he loved. He will be greatly missed. Services will be private.
