Archie was of the Christian faith and attended Cape Christian in Cape Coral, FL. His witty humor, love of travel and his passion for living life to the fullest will always remain in our hearts.

He was a loving brother, uncle & cousin to many.

Archie was preceded in death by his brother, Earl Shaffner.
