    "California, Death Index, 1940-1997," Garry W Schafer, 1996
    name: Garry W Schafer
    event: Death
    event date: 03 Feb 1996
    event place: San Bernardino, California, United States
    birth date: 18 Dec 1945
    birthplace: New York
    gender: Male
    father:
    mother: Pileo

    This scan from the Watertown Daily Times on Saturday, November 6, 1971 is for someone with the same name, right age, and also in New York state. Looks like Mr. Schafer had connections to Rochester and Alexandria Bay, NY.
    Man Gets One Year in Pistol Theft
    Garry Wayne Schafer, 25, Rochester, was serving a one-year sentence in Jefferson County Jail today for third degree grand larceny in connection with stealing a pistol and brandishing it at a law enforcement officer...

    ...Schafer stole the .22 caliber pistol in Alexandria Bay Aug. 17 and threatened Alexandra Bay Police Chief Vernon R. Burrows with the loaded weapon the following day.
    This family tree lists a Garry Wayne Schafer (no birth date to confirm if it is the right one, but strong possibility it is) with divorced parents and two brothers: Link here.

    This obituary (link here) for one of the brothers lists that he was predeceased by "...a brother, Gary Schafer." The spelling is off (but so is the mother's name - it differs from the family tree by one letter), but if it is the right person, than perhaps the family is aware of Mr. Schafer's passing?

    I believe I have found the contact information for the surviving brother and his son. PM'ing to Raine and Nemo'sMom!

    I wonder if the Garry listed in the family tree is the right one because the mothers maiden name on the California death index differs from the ones listed in the family tree.

    ^ Good point, MissSunshine! I pursued this line because I struck out with the listed mother's maiden name and went by geography and birth year given the unique spelling of the first name (two R's). I'll have to pick up on the mother's maiden name when I can see straight again between the family tree!

    I am having trouble with the maiden name as well. I wonder if it is right or a spelling error.

    The article that talks about Garry's court date in 1971 lists the lawyer who represented him. The lawyer still practices in New York...if Tiff's lead doesn't work out then maybe the lawyer could be contacted? Perhaps he knows the family or something.
