John Schaffhauser Obituary, Death – We regret to inform you of the demise of John George Schaffhauser, our car-loving, classic-rock-listening, massively bearded father. John, 67, lost his courageous fight against prostate and lung cancer on June 18th. John was the sole child of John Schaffhauser and Enna Denning, both of whom passed away before he was born. His wife, mother, and sister, as well as his three children, Lesley (Brandon), Lindsey (Peter), and James (Barbara), and five incredible grandchildren, will miss him dearly.
John spent his life as the trusted repairman for many of his loved ones and acquaintances, and he was known for coming up with novel solutions whenever something needed mending, replacing, or construction. Spending the day riding around in his favorite car and showing it off at local car events was one of his favorite things to do, especially with his friends from the Windsor Area Street Rods. We are so grateful to everyone at The Village at St. Clair for all of the support and kindness they have shown our father over the past few months.
We know Bishop Paul was in the greatest hands with you because of the amazing care he received from the workers in the Kingsville neighborhood and from Bishop Paul himself. You’re really welcome. If you knew John, you know that a regular funeral service wouldn’t do justice to his life, and that’s why we’ve decided to have a private Celebration of Life for him this coming fall.
