So sorry to hear about Shawn. My prayers go out to his wife and kids. I also went to school and church with Shawn in Half Moon Bay. I spent many hours with him fooling around at the church farm. Driving tractors, throwing leek seeds at each other, playing on a tire swing. I remember riding in his TBird going to church dances. I remember once him driving Wes Holland and I "over the hill" to the drive in movie to see Star Wars. It has been great to see what he has been up to the past couple of years on facebook. I am sad to see he has gone. I also look forward to seeing him soon.

I worked with Shawn in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.  I was shocked to hear about his passing when I was away on my vacation.  Shawn was a great man with a great sense of humor.
We spent about a year and a half working together in Jubail,  He will be greatly missed.  My deepest sympathy to his family.  May God rest his soul in peace (Amen).

I got reacquainted with Shawn from our High School years (class of 77). While chatting I got the impression that Shawn lived a very very full life. I admire all that he achieved and I am saddened to learn of his death. Shawn had mention to me some of his future goals. I will remember that he was looking ahead in life. He was always very friendly and giving. As his classmate in Half Moon Bay I can recall his willingness to listen and be a buddy and to offer a smile. I enjoyed looking at his recent family photos because I can see a life well lived.
