Schaffer, Ralph Lloyd, Jr. - Press of Atlantic City

Monday, February 20, 2017

Later in life, he loved fishing the most, especially with his family in Marathon, FL. Ralph worked hard (too many hours) his whole life and generously gave back to his community in many ways (Rotary Club, Elks, ASA Umpire, local Oktoberfest, etc). Ralph was known by many as "Buda", a man who kept his word no matter what, a self-educated man, a fierce competitor and friend, a bull, a teddy bear, a leader, a person you could always come to for help, a man who professed the 6 "P's", our Patriarch, and most of all a selfless and dedicated family man. Ralph is survived by his wife of 52 years Patricia "Trish" A. Schaffer (Wigmore), daughter and husband Denise and Timothy Swick, son and wife, Ralph and Rhonda Schaffer III, son and wife Joseph and Yulia Schaffer. Ralph was predeceased by sister Roberta Powell and survived by sister Diane Jackson and brother Bruce Schaffer.Ralph is survived by 11 grandchildren (Larissa and husband Jason, Bradley, Kyle, Sarah, Anthony, Ashlee, Sydney, Nikkie, Kahlan, and Samantha) and 4 great-grandchildren (Raelyn, Kensley, Nolan, and Felix) and predeceased by his best friend (Bacardi). Family and friends may visit from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm on February 16, 2017 and 11:00 am to 2:00 pm on February 17, 2016 at Ingersoll-Greenwood Funeral Home, 1201 Central Ave, North Wildwood, NJ 08260. Interment following at Cold Springs Presbyterian Cemetery, 780 Seashore Rd, Cold Springs, NJ. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that in the spirit of Ralph, you please take the amount you would spend on flowers or donations, and please place into your savings account. In that simple act, you honor him! Celebrate his life by living yours with hard work, generosity, love, and a joke for a friend.
