He enjoyed long conversations with his mother, father, family and friends. Shawn had his own roofing and contracting business. He loved being with his children and showing them many things. As a child he was mischievous, always smiling and joking. He was, and is, the joy of his mother and late father. Shawn had a deep faith and love and respect for God.
