Donald Eugene “Red” Shaver 82, of Brownwood, left for his eternal home January 25, 2021 at Hendrick Hospice Center in Abilene TX. A celebration of life service will be held Thursday January 28, 2021 at Heartland Church (Brownwood TX) at 1:00 pm with graveside to follow at Greenleaf Cemetery. Pastor Rick Phelps will be officiating.

Donald was born Jan. 23, 1939 in Wapanucka, Oklahoma to Charlie and Ada Shaver. Red began working at a young age, including a stint at a local wrecking yard. Red’s strong work ethic continued as he worked in the oil fields until he was injured.

He was a loving husband and father who always enjoyed spending time with family. Through different adventures, Red always ensured his children had smiles on their faces, while teaching them the same work ethic he was taught from a young age. As the years passed, many different children and teenagers referred to Red as “dad” or “grandpa” because of the time he invested into each of their lives.

Red enjoyed hunting, fishing and tinkering with different vehicles and 4-wheelers on his property and was always there for others, whether it be to fix a vehicle, change a water heater or taking care of just about anything mechanical that may be causing problems. Charity work was also important to Red, who was commonly found on Saturdays and Tuesdays volunteering his time with a local Lion’s Club. He was a long-time member of Heartland Church, where his three daughters were married.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charlie and Ada Shaver as well as brothers Floyd, J.T. and Truman, sisters Patsy and Leora and granddaughter Kayleigh Sh’rae.

Red is survived by first wife Juanita and second wife Vicci Vandenberg, who he considered the love of his life, for more than 31 years. He is also survived by brother Ralph Shaver of Mineral Wells; sisters Charlene Herring and husband Phillip of Romance, Ark. and Mary Nichols of Brownwood, Tx.; daughters Shawna Starr of Tyler, Tx.; Beth Phelps and husband Rick of Bangs, Tx., Colleen Bostick (Shaver) of Lake Brownwood, Tx. and Ada Green and husband Eric of Brownwood, Tx. He is also survived by grandchildren Briana, Brooke, Katrina, Andrew, Jordan, Alex, Lauren, Tiffany, Alyssa, Garrett, Tessa and Maura, as well as many more children and grandchildren who called Red “dad” or “grandpa”. These were all people who meant the world to Red and who he considered his own.

Red will be missed so much by everyone who knew him especially his daughters, son in-laws, grandchildren and siblings. I've known Red since the day his daughter Beth married my son Rick. My entire family was not only blessed to gain Beth but also to gain Red and the rest of the family. He always treated us like we were as much his family as anyone. He also knew how to smoke Brisket better than anyone. He set such a good example for his kids, grandkids and all of us on how to treat people. I he is with Jesus and all of those who went before him. Love you Red and love you girls as if you were my own.
