Surrounded by his loving family, Larry S. Shaffer, Sr., of Coburn, passed away at his home on June 5, 2023.  He was 82.  Born November 15, 1940, in Coburn, Larry was a son of the late Nelson S. and Mary M. (Coble) Shaffer.  He was a 1958 graduate of Penns Valley Area High School.  On April 25, 1959, he married Lucy Bobb who survives at their home.

In addition to his wife, Larry is survived by three daughters, Eva M. Shaffer, Julie A. Smith (Tom) and Candace Anne Bierly (Alex); one son, Larry S.

Larry was the owner/operator of Discount Remodelers for 40+ years with his son, Larry Jr. who was his Master Carpenter.  He was a member of the Grace Covenant Church in Lewistown where he served as an Elder.  In his spare time, he enjoyed a good carpentry project as well as restoring and refinishing old furniture. Larry owned Shaffer’s Antiques and loved the hunt for unique finds at flea markets and yard sales.  He had a coveted collection of Native American and Centre County baskets as well as old mason jars, crocks, and old militia relics.  Every year he and his family would travel to the Gettysburg Antique Show for a hot dog at Ernie’s and dinner at the Lincoln Diner.    Family time meant everything to Larry, his wife and children were his life’s joy.  He helped those around him without hesitation and ministered to many. Larry and Lucy loved to sit on the porch in Coburn visiting with family and watching the Eagles with their beloved dog Muffin.
