Charles Shifflett, known by all as Junior, unexpectedly passed away at his home in Browns Cove, Virginia, on April 1, 2017. Born on December 24, 1977, he was the son of Janice Shifflett and the late Buck Shifflett of Crozet, Virginia.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his grandmother, who was a great help in raising him and whom he looked up to as a mother figure, Estelle Geneva Batten; and a grandfather, George William "Pick" Shifflett.

He is survived by the love of his life, whom he shared 15 years with, Jenny; their three sons whom he adored, Austin, Bubba, and Dillon Shifflett, all of Browns Cove, Virginia; a daughter, Cassie Shifflett, of Afton, Virginia; a grandmother who called him "her boy," Mary Morris, of Waynesboro, Virginia; a sister, Cindy Hall, of Afton, Virginia; sister, Tiffany Shifflett; brother, Brandon Shifflett; and step-father, Thomas Shifflett, also known as "Bones."

Junior was a "stand in the shadow" type of man, unless it came to Jenny and the boys or something he strongly believed in. He was a man of few words, but if anyone needed help diagnosing a problem with a vehicle he was there to lend a hand and his knowledge to fix it through trial and error. He was a Ford kind of man, and if your Chevy needed repair he would direct you to the nearest garage. If he wasn't under a hood, he could be found sporting his camo, leaning on his truck with the music blasting, throwing back some cold ones with his brother, Dave White, Ricardo Becerra, and Bean. Where you saw Junior, you saw Dave. If they weren't in the yard they were "taking a ride," and we all knew that meant down some back road.

Junior's hobby was trucks and vehicles, but his passion was his kids. He was a good father and loyal friend.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 6, 2017, at 2 p.m., at Teague Funeral Home in Charlottesville.
