Deeply saddened to hear of his passing, hope he is in a better place now and has peace. Will miss him seeing him on the way into town, was always kind and hilarious, brightened my day even in the worst.

Dear Beth and Malcom. There are no words to express how heartbroken we were to learn about Shane's passing. Cape Charles has lost such a fine young man. We will never forget his impassioned pleas before he would pass the boot for the fire station at the Ephinany parties. We pray that in the days ahead you will find comfort in your memories and also knowing that the town shares in your grief. We send our love and prayers. Bruce and Audrey Brinkley

My sincerest heartfelt sentiments go out to Malcom and family. Shane was a kind giving man. I have enjoyed seeing him during peak season over the years. I will miss seeing him creating golf carts as I drive into town and hearing his laughter at the Shanty. I pray for all close to him to find peace.

There are people that come into your life that make a difference, Shane was one of those people. He never hesitated to say hello and follow it up with something to make me laugh.

Beth and Malcom, sending you love and God's peace in your loss. May every thought of Shane bring back happy times and a smile to your face. He was a terrific guy and such an asset to our town. love to you both, Cela & John
