Robert J. “Bob” Schaeffer, 62, of Davenport, died peacefully, Thursday August 17, 2023 in the loving arms of his sister, Rosie and nephew, Kevin at home.

Robert Joseph Schaeffer was born on May 23, 1961 in Davenport, a son of Albert A. and Jean J. (Janssen) Schaeffer.  He attended West High School.  Bob worked for Thermo King, Fruhof Freight and Murray Transfer in his working days.

 

Bob enjoyed trout fishing, playing pool, and watching NASCAR and documentaries, especially about bands.  He also had the latest, sharpest looking cars, and when he saw another one on the streets, he’d trade it in for a new model.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother, James Albert Schaeffer.  May they rest in peace.
