In loving memory of Shon from family and friends. Shon loved family, everyone was important to him. He had a kind heart and wanted to be there for everyone, be it big or small. He took after his grandpa for fishing and the tales did get bigger as time went on. He had the knowledge of the lake to get his fish and could he cook it up. He loved the big woods and could tell you the best spot to sit to see deer or his squirrels and he enjoyed his time with his dad. Shon learned early from his grandmas how to cook. Mom added spices and went from there. Shon was a spiritual person and always knew there was a bigger picture for him self and for all. He knew he needed the importance of taking care of the planet and all living creatures. Shon had a dream of owning his own fishing service. He would go fishing everyday if the weather was right. He recently had a new addition to the family and fell in love with Hunter before he was even born. He already took him fishing and wanted to teach him how to hunt. He also liked to play darts and his teams took 3rd and 4th place this year in league. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved him. Remember his hugs and his great big smile. Shon we will love you and will miss you and there will never be another you. Until we meet again.
