Robert (Bob) J. Schaeffer

We were saddened to receive the news last week of the passing of Bob Schaeffer on May 4.  Bob was the 4th oldest of the 17 Schaeffer children born to Carl and Eulalia Schaeffer.  After serving in the US Navy during the Korean War, Bob joined the family company in 1955 and worked as an electrician, estimator and Service Department  Manager before retiring in 1992.  He was also a co-owner of the Company from 1969-1988.  Bob was very dedicated to the success of Schaeffer Electric and would often stop by after his retirement just to make sure that things were running smoothly.  Quick with a smile and a laugh, Bob will be missed.
