John D. Shaffner III

September 27, 1980 – May 30, 2011

Big John, a beloved son, brother, and friend. John was my only child. John loved his friends like they were his family. John would tell people he had four kids, which were his best friend’s kids. John loved kids and cooking. John loved helping anyone he came across. John loved messing with his friends. My son had a beautiful smile and a great laugh. John loved making people laugh. John’s friends called him “Big John” because his heart was as big as the moon. We will never forget him. Big John.
