Obituary for Peter Schaffer

Peter Schaffer, 55, of Elbow Lake, MN, died on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Barrett Care Center.

Peter was born on August 28, 1961, in Ramsey County, Minnesota. Peter loved spending time with his roommates and staff at REM 1st street and the DAC. He delighted in tearing up everything he could get his hands on, bags, boxes and paper to name a few, and pillow fights. Peter was quite the jokester and would scoot around on his butt on the living room floor and try to untie the staffs or his own shoes. Peter liked to interact with the staff including leading them to the bedroom to turn on the radio to listen to his favorite country music, or insisting the windows remain open even if it was winter. Peter loved to walk the trails at Niemackl Park, Runestone Park and Tipsinah Mounds. He spent many hours playing with his precious beads and grabbing staff to help find them when they were lost. He was said to be a big flirt and could often be seen at the dances sitting by the young pretty gals. Peter liked his head and back rubbed. He enjoyed playing ball with all the roommates and staff.

Peter is survived by all of his roommates and staff of REM at 1st Street and the DAC.

We will all miss you Peter. We love you, and you will be remembered.
