Shawn was a 1988 graduate of Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston. He worked for many years in the printing business and as a landscaper for TR Reske Landscaping in Rockland. But most recently he was employed at Colonial Saw in Kingston.
Shawn had a passion for being involved in his boys’ lives and coaching their sports. He volunteered much of his time coaching with Plympton Athletic Youth Sports. He was an avid member of the Men’s Softball Leagues in Plympton, Carver & Hanson and an active member of the Hanson AA.
Anyone who knew Shawn would appreciate his friendliness, quick wit and generosity. His greatest legacy undoubtedly are his three sons who he would do absolutely anything he could for. They are the best reflection of their father.
