Jack Shaffer redid our closets when he owned the Closet Factory. He was very professional, knowledgeable with just the right touch of folksy. We liked working with him so much that he did the work on two other subsequent moves. He was a very nice man and I always wondered how he was doing. Prayers for your family for good memories of this wonderful and innovative man.

God bless you Vera White

I retired from the USAF and became an Auctioneer and had the privilege of auctioning Col Sheffer’s cabinet shop for him. He attended many of my other auctions and we spent lots of enjoyable time reminiscing on our time in the AF.

My sincere condolences to the family
