David W. Shearer, 66, of Mifflinburg, passed away Sunday, October 13, 2019 at Evangelical Community Hospital with his family by his side.
Born December 21, 1952 in Lewisburg, he was the son of the late William T. and Clara M. (Hagerman) Shearer.
He was a 1970 graduate of Milton High School and had worked at International Paper and retired from Milton Transportation this past June. He was a charter member of the Buffalo Valley Two-Cylinder Club, a member of The Train Collectors Association and Trinity United Methodist Church, New Columbia. He volunteered with the Mifflinburg Midget Football League, running the scoreboard for many years, even after his sons aged out of the program.
David played softball with the International Paper team, enjoyed bowling and going to the movies with his sons on weekends. He was an avid trivia buff, with the memory of an elephant, and a Penn State fan. He was a caregiver to his mother for the last five years of her life. He greatly loved his family and enjoyed watching his sons participate in sports and music. He treasured the time he was able to play with his granddaughter, Rey.
Surviving are three sons: Nathan D. Shearer and Ryan D. Shearer, both of Mifflinburg, and Michael D. Shearer and his wife Sarah of Waxahachie, TX; one granddaughter, Rey Shearer; one brother, Frank O. Shearer and his wife Kathy of New Columbia, and one sister, Melodee A.
