James Travis Shaver

January 31, 1946 ~ October 28, 2019 (age 73)



     James Travis Shaver, 73, passed away unexpectedly Monday, October 28, 2019, at Ashe Memorial Hospital in Jefferson.

Born January 31, 1946 in Cabarrus County, James was a son of the late James Alex Shaver and Nora Elizabeth Carver Shaver.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Scott Shaver and his sister-in–law, Lillie Mae Shaver.

Mr. Shaver had retired from Cannon Mills after 25 years of loyal service.  His warm smile and kind demeanor served him well, as he later worked for Walmart as a greeter in the garden center. He attended Sturgill Baptist Church in Lansing.  He loved all of his family well, especially his boys. Gone too soon, James will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Family members left with cherished memories include his wife, Carolyn Shaver; his sons, David and Travis Shaver; sister, Linda “LuLu” Wingler (Ernest); brothers, Norman Shaver and Larry Shaver (Teresa); his grandson, Aaron Shaver; and extended family members.

The family will receive friends Wednesday evening, October 30th from 6:00-8:00 pm at Whitley’s Funeral Home.  Funeral services to remember and celebrate Mr. Shaver’s life will begin at 11:00 am Thursday in the funeral home chapel, conducted by the Revs. Ronnie Cooper and Leonard Ewing.  Mr. Shaver will be laid to rest at Carolina Memorial Park Cemetery in Kannapolis.
