I worked as an orderly at Providence Hospital while in college at UMass with Dr. Shea's daughter, Christina. To this day, I recall the profound positive impact that he had on me. Dr. Shea took the time to mentor a fledgling premed student.
I subsequently completed med school, Navy service, surgical training, and hope that I've given a fraction of the positive guidance that Dr. Shea gave me.
With sincere condolences and appreciation.

I am so very sorry that I did not know of Dr. Shea's passing until now. I would have liked to pay my respects at the wake. I met Dr. Shea at Providence Hospital when I was 10 years old; I had broken my hip after falling off my bike. My dad often told me that he requested Dr. Shea because of his outstanding reputation.
Thanks to Dr Shea's skill as a surgeon, I have never had any complications and, in fact, often forget about that injury so many years ago. What I never have forgotten, though, is the kindness and respect that Dr. Shea showed me at a difficult time.
Until I read his obituary, I had no knowledge of Dr. Shea's distinguished military service. It is humbling to realize that the man who I remember as being so gentle when removing my bandages had also been in a war zone selflessly tending to injured soldiers.
I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Dr. Shea's wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Thank you, Dr. Shea. May the angels lead you into Paradise.

I met Dr. Shea a few years ago down at planned parenthood in Springfield, carrying his pro-life sign in the freezing cold. What a wonderful man. I feel blessed to have known him.
