Our beloved son, Kurt Daniel Shafer, passed away on May 5th, at the age of 35 years. He loved playing with his four year old daughter more than anything else. He was her horse when she was a princess; her tractor driver when she wanted to go to the pond; and her companion down the playground slides. His heart was big.
Kurt owned a pressure washing and painting business with which he struggled in a poor economy and poor health.
Kurt is survived by his parents, Peter and Barbara Shafer; his daughter, Nadia; brother, Jeffrey Shafer and sister-in-law, Nicole Shafer; and his niece, Lea Shafer; nephew, Evan Shafer; and five cousins; also two very loving friends who helped him through tough times, Sarah Mace and Bryna Emery.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations can be made in Kurt's name to The Healing Place of Wake County, 1251 Goode St., Raleigh, NC 27603.
