Posted on Dan’s behalf.
On June 20, 2017, Dan Shafer of Monterey, CA went onto what he was certain is his Next Great Adventure. Our spirits rejoice with and for him while our hearts grieve his absence from us on Planet Earth.
He is survived by his adoring wife Carolyn, his four grown daughters; Sheila (Jeff), Mary, Krista, and Heather (Jaime), 7 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren as well as his younger brother and sister, his nieces and nephews and their children.
He was a prolific author who wrote over 50 computer books, an eclectic blogger covering everything from the latest headlines, his favorite sports teams, and technology, and in recent years, turned most of his considerable writing and research talents to matters of spirituality. Dan was a greatly beloved Spiritual Teacher In Residence at Unity Monterey Bay, his home church, and and a sought-after guest speaker at other Unity fellowships. He also founded One Mind Fellowship, an online spiritual community. He has published books on the power of I AM and meditation. He had several projects in the completion stage when he passed, and we plan to finish what we can in his honor. He recently took a volunteer position at Job One Humanity, an organization that is concerned with the environment. Dan was passionate about his work there.
Dan was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1945 to Robert and Valrene Shafer. He served in Vietnam, and was active in the Civil Rights movement. He moved his family to California in 1978. He joins his parents, grandparents, brother, and infant son, Sean, in Heaven.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Unity Monterey Bay 601 Madison St. Monterey, CA 93940. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you gift a donation in Dan’s name to the Fred Kleppe Emergency Fund of Unity Monterey Bay.
