  • I was shocked to see this! I grew up with Nick, and Shawn always took us fishing and camping. He was a great guy and one of the ‘cool dads’. My thoughts are with you, Nick.

  • Deborah,
    Shawn will be missed by many as his light shone brightly to many people.
    I personally will miss his beautiful blue eyes and easy laughter. He cared deeply for you and I have many memories of you both at our home. May God bless you and I pray that your faith will carry you though this difficult time.

  • I was friends with Shawn from the early 80’s at Azurdata.
    We worked together, went through divorces together and raised children.
    I can’t put into words what a loss this is. I just retired this year and was going to call him to go to lunch…..
    As Shawn would have said “this is a crock of Bulls***”
    See you on the other side my friend.
