  1. candleMy biggest hero. You taught me my biggest life lessons and were always there for me. You loved intensely and with your whole heart. You will be with me in my heart and soul forever guiding me. Until we meet again my sweet loving big brother, I love you. Your baby sister, Laura

  2. Shawn was always a great friend since the day we met, he coached my son and his son playing baseball and he was always so great with the kids. They always looked up to him and he always found a way to make them laugh. It is very sad and heartbreaking to loose a good friend at a young age. His memory will always live on through us and will remain in our hearts for all eternity.

  4. You will always be near and dear to my heart ❤. I will always think of you when I hear someone say Shhh, as you often Shhh me 🤫. Thank you for all the fond and good memories, I will miss them with you until we meet again. Laura, Lee and family my thoughts and deepest condolences 🙏 are with you, now and always. Your friend Brenda Fifield (Kingfield ME).

  5. Shawn reached out to give me sound advice when I needed. I’ll never forget that. He was a beacon of wisdom and had a strong sense of right and wrong. He told me his son was his greatest gift. He was a good and decent man

  6. Shawn was always the big cousin. He tried to tease me into eating yellow snow while sledding at my house! He was always ready to laugh and loved his family.

  7. The first time I saw him he immediately welcomed me into his home and he made you feel that you had a new friend. To me he was a great listener and he once took me fishing on the sound and I remember talking for hours and having a great time. You will be missed and always in our hearts. I want to wish all of his friends and family strength and above all love to deal with this great loss.

  8. In memory of Shawn…rest in peace.
    Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
    Where there is injury, pardon;
    Where there is doubt, faith;
    Where there is despair, hope;
    Where there is darkness, light;
    And where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master,
    Grant that I may not so much seek
    To be consoled as to console,
    To be understood as to understand,
    To be loved, as to love.

    Francis of Assisi

  9. As I cry I laugh as I look back at all the things I did with my friend.. and think about all the people he touched I’m not capable of putting the words together to describe the man I knew..heart of gold he’d do anything for you and with you even when we didn’t know what we were doing and it always turned out to be an adventure with many laughs..I will miss him and look forward to seeing him again some day until then I will continue to tell the stories and continue to laugh as I think and tell them.. I’m honored to have been considered family by him..

  10. I didn’t know your dad but knew you from the hardware store. (You’re also best friends with my cousin….). I just wanted to write to say I’m so sorry for your loss and you and the family have my deepest sympathy.

  11. To The Lopez Family, our deepest condolences and may God comfort you during this time of grief…

  12. Summer of 74: took a bike ride to Quonset Pt., RI to visit my sister and husband ,a Navy officer , stationed there. My brother, Kevin , 6 yrs my junior qlso came. We invited Shawn, a wildman, 16 at the time and I recall his dad telling me to ‘look out ‘for Shawn.
    Well, the route given us by ‘bro-in -law’ seemed to be totally uphill. Kevin an I would be chugging up towards a bend that I hoped was level but Shawn would sprint ahead to the bend, stop and yell back to us:”THERE’S MORE HILL!”
    He did this seemingly 400 times, where I wanted to kill him…until I remembered his dad’s ‘order.’

  13. My most deepest sympathy to Mimi, Cookie, Laura and Ellen. I will miss Shawn. Peace and all good. Dorothy B. McKeown

  14. candleCondolences to the family, in the short time I knew Shawn I knew he was a great man, he would offer his help or ask if I needed anything. My family and I bought a piece of property next to his family’s. We told him we loved fishing, boating, nature and you could see his smile grow. When he heard my saw start up and working he would come over and see me to make sure I didn’t need anything. We would end up talking for awhile no problem and he knew I liked ice fishing from our talks. I went up this past weekend and he was looking down on us cause we had great luck. He said we would catch big bass here but not much else as it was shallow. I told him what we were out to get and for our first trip it was a great day and everything he said it would be. I will always remember you and how you welcomed my family

  15. candleWith the most deepest of sympathy, I’m so very sorry for your tremendous loss. You are all in my heart and thoughts. Fair winds and following seas, Shawn.

  16. candleEternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  17. We are so sorry hear of the loss of your father. Sending our thoughts and prayers for you and your family at this very difficult time.🙏🏻

  18. Rest in peace Shawn.
    I could never be the avid outdoorsman as you, but thanx for getting me out there. Whether mountain-biking, just talkin, etc.. all those times are priceless. A true friend.
    For 50yrs we always knew if either of us got into trouble, the other would be there for you. For being an endless fountain of useful information and help, Iam forever grateful.
    For the family.. wish I could have offered condolences in person. I know this is a hard one. Hope you’re staying strong, as tough as Shawn would be.

    Namaste’ Shawn
