BURLEY – Shaylon Don Shaffer, a 36-year-old resident of South Jordan, Utah, and formerly of Burley, returned to his Heavenly Father on March 25, 2018.

Shaylon is finally at peace after succumbing to his struggle with addiction and diabetes.

Shaylon is survived by his mother and father, Steve and Shelley Jones; his loving oldest brother, Travis (Laura) Jones; his middle brother, “O Tracker” Tyson (Amber) Jones; and his coolest nephews, Cooper and Caleb; his youngest brother, “T” also known as Traig (Kortnie) Jones and his princess, Addison and playmate, Traigen. He is also survived by his father, David (Shawn) Shaffer; grandmother, Sherrel Taylor Jensen; grandfather, Dick (Sharon) Jensen; grandma, Charlie Shaffer. He was loved by many cousins from the Jones, Jensen, Taylor, Antone and extended Shaffer families; as well as many lifetime friends.

Shaylon is preceded in death by his grandparents, William R. and Emma Jones; grandfather Don Shaffer; grandmother Phyliss Jones; as well as his special grandparents he spent time with in the summers, Jan and Ann.

Wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts and on our minds.
