Nicole and Family, Shaun was so full of joy and energy from the moment he came into the school where were worked together in the summer. Most people had a coffee cup but not Shaun..he brought the whole pot! He was always so hilarious and kept me fascinated with his great stories about the Cherry neighborhood times, the cats eating all kinds of clothes, (he even had to prove it to us by bringing some in and oh yeah I was shocked) and his middle of the night times with Nevan. He was so proud of his family. He talked often of you both and so enjoyed being a dad. My heart goes out to all of your family. May you find peace in your loving memories of such a wonderful son, uncle, husband and dad.

We never had the honor of meeting Shaun but knew from his mother-in-law Marie, my friend, what a fine young man he was and a great & loving husband and father. Way too young to be taken away from his family and all the joys of being a father. Colie, we are saddened for your loss and may God place his arms around you and Nevan. Rest in peace Shaun. With love and deepest condolences.

Shaun we had so many great memories from college. You were one of the most kind hearted people I’ve met. I’m not sure I ever remember seeing you angry or having a bad word to say about anyone. A rare trait in people. Nicole, you and your son are in my thoughts during this difficult time. I will miss you brother, and wish we would have stayed in touch more. Until I see you again
