Douglas M. Shaffer, 58, of Punxsutawney, passed away Wednesday, February 3, 2021, at home surrounded by family and friends after a courageous battle with cancer.

Doug was born June 14, 1962 to Thomas and Margaret (Roy) Shaffer. He was the loving husband of Marianne (Bowser) Shaffer, who preceded him in death.

Doug was a lifelong resident of Punxsutawney, having graduated from Punxsutawney Area High School, and was also a member of Saints Cosmas and Damian Catholic Church.
