Always enjoyed his company. Shaune was a fun guy. Being in a band with him was always great. He also was a talented song writer. Lots of people already miss you Shaune. See you in Heaven......Bob n Jackie.

My sympathies to Shaune's  mom Dorothy and family. I haven't seen him in a very long time but I do remember he loved Sci-Fi movies, rock & roll music and writing his screenplay. May he rest in peace. God bless.

My memories are from when we were kids way before social media. We would act out movies and play outside all day. We weren't close as adults but I will cherish remembering our youth. Love you Shaune...Cousin Mary-Anne

I remember our class wore costumes on Halloween at Ashley School. Everyone had the usual costumes for our age but not Shaune. He was Dracula in a professional costume and make up. He stood out from everyone else.
