I found out about Shawn's passing last weekend & I am heartbroken. Both Shawn & I became members of St. John's in August of 2014. It's not going to be the same without him but he put up a heck of a fight with his condition. RIP Shawn

My deepest condolences, sad to hear of Shawn's passing. I worked with Shawn at J C Penney and will always think of him with a smile, because there was rarely a day that Shawn did not have me laughing with him. Rest in peace, Shawn.

Extremely sad to hear about Shawn' s sudden passing. I know Shawn' s dedication to youth hockey.
My younger son played with Shea. Just about a year ago had a nice chat with him with my older son, who was getting immunotherapy for Crohns Disease in the Apheresis Unit at AMC. He seemed to be doing so well. No words on hearing this news. My sincerest condolences.

So sorry to hear of Shawn's passing. He used to brighten my day when we worked together at JCPenney. We used to share the funny stories of his Uncle Harry's shenanigans. My thoughts are with the entire family at this sad time. Rest in Peace, Shawn.
