Shawn "Chef" had a huge heart and truly knew what it was to be a great friend. His PennView crew at Penn State will miss him and will never forget his smile. Much love to his family through this tough time.

God gave you a wonderful life Shawn. Your laughter and your happiness doing what you have done since a young boy - fishing - showed in your endless smiles and stories. Sending you to rest in Montana; my life will always hold you in memory and I know you are going to be at home with your grandpap Ted and Dick. They will enjoy your fish stories as much as we did on earth.

We are all shocked and saddened to hear of our friend Diesels passing. He was a kind,thoughtful,caring person. We all had many good times rooting for or against all of his favorite teams with him. Lots of good times sharing a beer and swapping fishing stories as we all shared a love for fishing together. Our thoughts and prayers are with his whole family at this difficult time.

Rich, Marci and family,
There are no words to express my heartfelt sorrow to such a beautiful family for such a sorrowful loss. I didn't know Shawn, but I hear all the stories and read all the posts and realize what a very special man he was. Everyone who knew him was very blessed and fortunate to have known such a great man. May has great strength of character and giving nature give you comfort. Hold his memory close to your heart and he'll always be with you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.

Rich, Marci, Devon, Kelsey, Jordan, and family....

I am still in shock and was deeply saddened with the news of Shawn's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have so many fond memories of Shawn, his infectious smile, and his great attitude, both in the classroom, and on the streams. Through all the years and to this day I tell all my Fly Fisher Club members about Shawn's story and how he lived out his dream on the fabled trout waters of Montana. I can't shake the lesson to be learned here since I learned of his passing. Know that as long as I teach kids to cast, tie, and read the waters, they'll be hearing about Shawn and his legacy will live on. Personally, I will be making a donation to TU in Shawn's name, and he will be fondly remembered each time I step into the water, tie a fly, or hook a fish. May God be with you all and provide you comfort always!
