Obituary for Michael Howard Schaefer

Michael Howard  Schaefer
Schaefer, Michael
Passed away on Sunday, September 29, 2019 four days past his 74th birthday. Mike raced Standardbred horses his whole life until a stroke forced him to retire 6 years ago. Mike raced at all the major racetracks and wintered many years at the Buffalo/Batavia. Copper Penny Tom, Live Ticket, Auntie Jean, Miss Sandy Pat and Artistic Topaz are just a few of his many performers. At times his stable would surpass 60 head. He was a winner of over 1500 driving wins and over $3 million in earnings. He is survived by his mother Clara, sister Sandra Fiscus (Bill), sister Debra Holding (John), nephew Dan Clemmer and three great-nephews, Brent, Eric and Ryan. According to his wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or service. Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home (519) 749-8467. If you wish to celebrate Mike’s life – watch a horse race – go fishing – live for the day. Visit www.henrywalser.com to view Mike’s memorial.
