Even at 70, John Schaefer still wore his Austin High School class ring.
He was a proud longtime Austin resident, Victoria Schaefer, his daughter-in-law, said Saturday. He would call his only son at the crack of dawn each year and wake him up to wish him happy birthday.
And he was dedicated to his mother, who shared a duplex with him on Lanshire Drive until her death almost two years ago.
It was there on Friday that a police officer shot and killed John Schaefer after he refused to surrender his gun and then aimed his weapon at the officer, officials said.
