David W. Shearer
David W. Shearer, 66, of Mifflinburg, passed away on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, at Evangelical Community Hospital, Lewisburg, with his family by his side.
He was born Dec. 21, 1952, in Lewisburg, a son of the late William T. and Clara M. (Hagerman) Shearer.

David was a 1970 graduate of Milton High School.
He had been employed 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.

Shearer and his wife Sarah of Waxahachie, Texas; one granddaughter, Rey Shearer; one brother, Frank O. Shearer and his wife Kathy of New Columbia; and one sister, Melodee A. Mensch and her husband David of Milton.
