Shawn was an avid lover of the outdoors and loved spending his free time in the woods or on the river. He was a passionate hunter and fisherman. He was a devoted Mountaineer fan and could often been seen wearing jerseys of his Minnesota Vikings Team. He brought joy and laughter to his many friends of all ages, both old and new and was a founding member of his high school gang called the “Pinheads”. Shawn enjoyed listening to music, playing Spades with his Mustoe family, and could always be counted on for bringing a delicious meal to Thanksgiving dinner.
