Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 18, 1925
Death: May 11, 2010

Francis I. "Sam" Schaeffer, resident of San Jose, has gone ahead in search of friendly fairways. He will be profoundly missed by his wife Cecile and children, Maura, Jim, Katie and Jesse, his grandchildren, Nicholas and Jenna Wallin and nephew Teddy Flores. He leaves two sisters, Helen Flores and Sr. Anne SHF and two brothers, Michael and Anthony. He was the brother-in-law of Gene and Mary, Jack and Pat, Kitty, and Richard and Judith Monahan. He had many nieces, nephews, friends and Godchildren. Sam was a graduate of St. Joseph's Grammar School, Bellarmine College Preparatory and San Jose State College and was a decorated WWII veteran of the Battle of the Bulge. He has proud memories of his time on Bellarmine's Hall of Fame basketball team and of his tenure as manager of his college baseball team. He served for many years as contract administrator for several of the valley's electronic firms. A celebration of Sam's life is planned for Friday, May 21 from 1 to 4pm in the Liccardo Center at Bellarmine Prep on University and Elm, San Jose. We wish to thank the Kaiser Hopice staff for their most welcome devotion to Sam's care.
