Bruce Schaffner

Bruce George Schaffner, 59, of Valencia passed away unexpectedly Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020.

Bruce worked for Preston Estates, Westinghouse, Laser Drive and Pelles Heating & Cooling.

Bruce is survived by his ex-wife, Lori Schaffner; two sons, Adam Schaffner of Butler, and Eric Schaffner of Valencia; one brother, Brian Schaffner and his wife, Donna, of Butler; and two sisters, Kathleen Gardina and her husband, Ernie, of Butler, and Colleen Wible of Butler.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara (Henry) Schaffner, who died Sept. 11, 2006; and his brother-in-law, Curt.
