He touched so many lives from the day we could swim and he did so in his gentle genuine way. As a teacher he was an advisor, a friend and in school dad and an individual that truly wanted to make a difference in the adults we became.

To the Shaner family:
I knew Jack when we were in high school and we played sports against each other…he for West Reading and I for Wyomissing. We reconnected at Albright after we both served in the army. We enjoyed a warm friendship through those years and though I had not seen Jack in a long time I have fond memories of him. He was a talented athlete and a person I have always remembered as someone I was very glad to have known. My condolences to all the family.

Condolence from Debbie Morris on May 31st, 2010 12:00 am

Tracy, John, and family, I am so sorry about your dad. I know what a close family you are and what a void there will be with him gone. He always made me laugh, usually making fun of how slow I talk. He knew my dad pretty well and unfortunately I did not. So Mr. Shaner after high school he said I could call him Jack but it just didn’t seem right to meshared some funny stories about my dad with me and always had kind words to say about him. I will always appreciate him for that. He appeared a little gruff on the outside but was a very tender man on the inside. As a teenager, I was at the Shaner home quite a bit. I was on my way to pick up Tracy one morning and I got pulled right in front of their house. I was scared that Dot and Mr. Shaner wouldn’t let her ride with me after that but they did! I love the Shaner family and I am so sad for you loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Condolence from Larry & Wandra Farrell on May 31st, 2010 12:00 am

Dot Mrs. Shaner and family. We were so sorry to hear about Mr. Shaner’s Jack passing away. You have all been in our thoughts and prayers for some time now. He will always be Mr. Shaner to us, even though it has been a long time since we called our teachers by Mr. and Mrs. I remember well,the fun we had playing on the basketball team and especially the “Dragon Wagon”. He would occasionally have to stop fights between his girls and the other team we happen to be playing. Your home had the open door policy, for all his students. He will be missed by all who knew him. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and prayers.
In Christian Love

Please accept our condolences for the loss of Mr. Shaner. I shall always remember him in class teaching life to students. He was the most astute person related to current events I ever remember. You could always count on him to know what was happening! He will be missed.

Condolence from Natalie A Miller on July 19th, 2010 12:00 am

Mr Shaner was one of a kind! His Civics class was my favorite because his class was open discussion! Whatever he wanted to talk about, that was our lesson for that day! There will never be another teacher or person like him.
May God be with you all and especially the grandchildren. There is nobody like a grandpa.
With love, Natalie Andrews Miller
