William Shawn Edwards

Alamogordo - Shawn Edwards, 45, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, August 5, 2019 in Otero County, NM. He was born January 21, 1974 to Joseph and Brenda (Phillips) Edwards. Shawn spent most of his life in Alamogordo, graduating from Alamogordo High School in 1992. He worked at GCRMC in Alamogordo and Holloman Air Force Base, with the chimps. Family, friends, and a love of animals was very important to him. He was also a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys and enjoyed watching basketball as well.
