Shawn was dog daddy to Candy & Peanut.  He enjoyed all sports and loved going to NASCAR races with his family and friends.  He even got to meet his hero, Dale Earnhardt Sr.

In his earlier years he was an AA dart player, he also loved playing golf.  Shawn and Judy enjoyed and spent time at Plum Island, MA he just loved the ocean.  They also enjoyed spending time with each other and their families.
