MONROE TOWNSHIP - ADAM SCHAFFER passed away on June 24, 2021, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick. He was 54.
Adam was born on July 14, 1966 in Brooklyn, New York to Frank and Evelyn Schaffer. He graduated from Southshore High School in Canarsie in 1985, and went on to pursue a career in information technology.
On July 2, 1995 he married Nancy [Levine] Schaffer. Together they raised a son and daughter, David and Rose, in Monroe Township, New Jersey.
Most recently he worked as a Systems Administrator at SHI International Corp.
Adam was a lover of a lot of things, music, movies, TV, his family, and his most recent hobby - 3D printing. If he was around today, he would probably say "I could have printed my own headstone." He was known for his frequent jokes and stories like, "Have you heard the latest? It hasn't come out yet."
Adam was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend.
Adam was preceded in death by his father, Frank.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy; his children, David and Rose; his mother, Evelyn; his brother and sister-in-law, Scott and Beata; his niece, Sarah; his nephew, Max, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
