pastor

We will lower the flag to half-mast in Middleburg Heights on Friday, October 17 to Monday, October 20, 2014 in honor of Pastor Donald Schaeffer. Pastor Schaeffer is fondly remembered as a person who guided city leaders including Mayor Gary W. Starr and members of city council as he volunteered on numerous occasions leading us in prayer, blessings, benedictions, and invocations at different events.

He was a caring and charismatic pastor and friend who spread Christianity. He was involved in some way in almost every ceremony held in Middleburg Heights. He even served with distinction on the Middleburg Heights Charter Review Commission representing the great people of Middleburg Heights.

“Pastor Schaeffer was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and believer in Christianity, as the Mayor of Middleburg Heights, I feel blessed to have known him.”

On behalf of the city of Middleburg Heights I extend our deepest condolences and prayers to the Schaeffer family, friends, members of Grace Church, colleagues, and neighbors.
