William Wayne Shaffer, 59, born February 19, 1962, was unexpectedly taken away from us far too soon on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.
He is survived by an adoring, devoted wife and best friend of 41 years, Tina M. Shaffer; two daughters, Cristina M. and Brittany N. Shaffer; son-in-law, Brandon T. Grimmer; his 17-year-old grandson, Justice W. Perez; a loving mother, Katherine Shifflett; four sisters, Kathy, Vicky, Diane, and Kristy; and his big brother, “Bubba”. He had numerous nieces and nephews, along with a family of in-laws, and many very dear friends including his best buddy, Donnie, and his three faithful pets.
William ,aka “Poopsi”, was the all-American epitomy of a great person. He was a simple man, laid-back, intelligent, honest, and kind-hearted. He was known for his hard-working ethics, was one of the best drywall men in the area, and always provided for his family. His passions consisted of riding his Harley, fishing, family trips to Nags Head, and relaxing with a few drinks, cracking jokes with his loved ones. He will be truly missed in more ways than one and forever in our hearts.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 from 2-4pm and 6-8pm at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Parkway, Richmond, VA 23294. A funeral service will be held at 11am on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 in the funeral home chapel.
