    I am so sad to hear that Shannon is no longer with us. Shannon was a loyal friend and devoted to his family above all things. I pray his family finds comfort together.

    I loved working with Shannon for nearly five years at ATC. He was a delight to work with and had a great personality. He loved his family greatly and I was always impressed by depth of his love for them. Dave Owens

    In Christ’s mercy,

    I am greatly saddened to learn of the passing of my cousin, Shannon. My mother was his father’s sister. Although it has been many years since I have last seen him, I always had a very fond memory of what a sweet boy he was. Please accept my condolences and I am very sorry for your loss.
    best regards,
