My Mom was in failing health and one particular morning before I went to work was checking on her, knowing she needed a trip to hospital or least to a doctor. Our dog, Roscoe, had been in declining health and was also sick that morning. Overwhelmed with the day, I met Shaffer on the road and told him how my morning was going. That eve I found Shaffer had taken the dog to the vet and had him cared for. He continued to spend hundreds of dollars to get Roscoe well. Shaffer took Roscoe into his house, assigned him a recliner by the heat stove and continued to care for him for years. That's just not a neighbor, that's family.

Fud, I was totally shocked to hear about your passing. It was only a month or so that we talked and you told me everything was OK and you were going to get through this. Little did I know then that this was Leukemia. When I moved to Batesville in 1984, we became the best of friends and created countless memories participating in numerous trapshooting events around the country. We could laugh and joke and rib one another without ever getting mad. I remember your Uncle Jim and the great memories we established together. It was great that you became an Indian and shot with us in the great state of Pennsylvania. I'll always cherish the memories and was truly glad your were part of my life. RIP my friend until we meet again. Dave.

Spent lots of hours at the gun shop and had many stories told on Fudley by many people. And of course he always had some of his own. Very sorry for your loss. Fudley made his mark and was one of a kind.

I've known Greg for a long time. Basically since grade school. He was a very sweet and caring man. I know he will be missed by all his family and friends. Especially the GCHS CLASS OF "74". R.I.P GREG.

We met when we were 5 or 6 years old and although I visited in the summers from Arizona, Greg and I spend a lot of time together. Once I moved to Greensburg, Greg got me going with the swim team. I remember traveling to summer meets in the old Rambler wagon going no more that 50 mph so the car as Greg's dad said, "wouldn't burn oil."
Greg's junior year with the swim team we were Greg Schwering on backstroke, myself breaststroke, Greg Shaffer butterfly and Jerry Taylor on freestyle. We had a memorable year!
Greg was more than willing to help out others and when I wasn't around, he did a lot for my mom and brothers. Although it has been a while since I last saw him he is forever in my memories!

As a son, I admired the loyalty and sincere devotion Greg displayed towards his dear mother as he would visit her daily while a resident in the nursing home. He also brightened our days while he visited his mother.

I was shocked to read this. I am so sorry for your loss Jordan and Wyllie. I first met Greg when he worked with Gary at Reiger's. He always had a smile. He always made me smile or laugh. He was a great hunter and loved to go West in the winter. I am sure Gary and Greg are in heaven reminiscing. Another one of the good guys gone too soon. I will miss seeing Greg and his smile.
