Obituary For Frederick Herbert Saffer
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 56 years, Catherine Theresa (Coyne). Always an inspiring and strong yet gentle father of Bryan (Kathy), Dan (Arlene), and the late Tom and Ken Saffer and Donna Urbanowicz; father-in-law of E.J. Urbanowicz and Sue and Laura Saffer; caring, funny and joking grandfather of Amanda (Andy), Matthew (Emily), Jared, Nathan (Caroline), Jenna, Nicholas, Kaitlyn, Colan, Lindsay, Madelyn and the late Laura; youthful and sweet great-grandfather that would still get onto the floor to play with Lilian and James; son of the late Charles and Estelle Saffer; brother of Lorraine (late Emil), Estelle (Vince) and the late Charles, Patricia and David; brother-in-law of Marian and Red; also survived by many other relatives and numerous loving friends. He was a Korean War army veteran and retired from the Floor Coverers Carpenters Union Local 1759 and a member for over 70 years. He was a devout Catholic and we are comforted that he has been reunited with his loved ones in heaven. He was a true outdoorsman and loved spending time at Slippery Rock Campground. He loved to tinker and tease, and his character, personality and smile will be missed dearly and fondly remembered. Friends will be received at the JOHN F.
