A native of Montgomery County, Shafer was born and raised in Caney. With a passion for working with young people, he has served the community as a Boy Scout leader for the last 35 years. During his involvement with Boy Scouts, Roy discovered there was a lack of outdoor survival skills among the youth he was working with, particularly cooking skills. To address this gap, Roy developed a strategy to teach cast iron cooking and simple fire techniques to youth. He has also implemented his strategy to train other adult scout leaders in the art of campfire cooking. In his day-to-day life, he is employed at Coffeyville Community College as an automotive technology instructor.
