Sincere condolences to Shawn’s immediate and extended families. Shawn was one of the first students in my teaching career many years ago. May he always find peaceful harmonies and eternal rest.

I’m so shocked & very saddened to hear of Shawn’s passing. Though it’s been many years, I”ll never forget the great time myself & my band-mates had with Shawn and he’s buddies in Vengeance, when we frequently crossed paths on the road. Shawn was a great guy & he will truly be missed.
