Shane was my beloved cousin and childhood friend. Even as a small boy, he always had a grin on his face. He was one of the kindest, most gentle of souls. Shane had a vivid imagination, bringing to life worlds where mythical creatures and heroes lived. He struggled when his wife passed away, but he kept that part hidden to most of the world. Instead, he presented a smile and that wonderful, low chuckle of his. He was an avid reader and knew so much about medieval history. You will be missed, Shane. My heart goes with you. May you find peace and happiness wherever you are.

I remember Shane from Lincoln Junior High where we had Mr. Bruce's PE class. Additionally, my friend's parent drove the school bus to McKinnon and I would take the round trip every once in a while. I always remember Shane reading books on the bus trip and that always impressed me. Here was a guy who just spent the last 8 hours in class, then on an hour bus ride, chose to read (for enjoyment). I never told him how much that impressed me because it is something I did not really appreciate until later in life. Shane, whether you knew it or not, you made an impression on me early in life that has helped me out tremendously as I got older. I am grateful for having known you. Darren N. Clevenger

Shane became my oldest brother when I was four and he was seven. I remember most vividly how much he liked to play with swords. He made a lot of armor and swords when were kids. I remember him wrapping his sword handle with copper wire and getting disciplined. He was very inventive, always imaginative and very fun loving. I didnt know Shane very well as an adult, nor did I know of his health issues. We didnt stay in touch, but I wish and pray that he is at peace.
