Shayne M. Desroches
HOPKINTON/HOLDEN - Shayne M. Desroches, age 13, of Hopkinton and formerly of Holden, died on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from injuries sustained in a car accident in Hopkinton.
Born in Worcester on March 5, 2000, Shayne was raised in Holden before moving to Hopkinton in 2010. He attended Davis Hill Elementary School in Holden and was currently enrolled in the eighth grade at Hopkinton Middle School. Shayne enjoyed sports and played in the recreational soccer program in Holden. Since moving to Hopkinton, he played recreational soccer and lacrosse and was presently trying out for basketball. He loved to create his own music and was a fan of Dubstep, a genre of electronic dance music. Shayne was kind and engaging and loved to make everyone laugh. He embraced his new community of friends but always found time for his younger family at home. We will cherish the time spent with Shayne, miss the love he shared with us, and find comfort in knowing that he is in the hands of God.
He leaves behind his devoted and caring mother, Amanda Desroches and Shawn, John and Joseph Kelly with whom he also lived with; maternal grandparents, David and Cindy (Harris) Desroches of Holden; paternal grandparents, Kelly (Maher) and Paul Michalczyk of Paxton; a maternal great grandfather, Donald Harris of Worcester; a maternal great grandmother, Marcia Desroches of Holden, a brother, Christian Asquith of Webster; aunts and uncles including, David Desroches, Jr. of Worcester, Shawn Desroches of Leicester, and Jaclyn McGreevy and her husband Ryan of Holden; along with many great aunts, uncles and cousins.

As a mom who lost her treasured 18 year old son, Chad, in a car accident four years ago I understand the devastating magnitude of the loss of your son. My heart breaks for you; it truly does. It is a loss that no parent should have to understand. I am so very sorry. Shayne is beautiful and he is beautiful because of your love for him. Love never ends ... you will love him and he will love you forever ... God bless.
