He was a licensed helicopter pilot, flight instructor, sky diving instructor, and internationally ranked BASE jumper. Recently, he was CTO at USA Pain Professionals and Engineer at Click Push. Always surrounded by friends, Shane was a motivational force, loved to tease and carry out elaborate practical jokes with his friends. Raised on a horse ranch, Shane loved all animals and most recently his dog, Bella.

In addition to his parents and sister, Shane is survived and celebrated by his Aunt Susan and Uncle John Taylor, and six cousins Larisa, Rachael, Sara, James, Jordan, Jon, stepdad Warren Bacon, stepmom, Betzaida Murphy and many friends throughout the world.
