Shamus Shannon Obituary

Shamus Shannon December 23rd 1975-December 27 2020

He is gone and now in his Grandmothers embrace.

Shamus Shannon was a lover, a lover of family a lover of life and all people. A truly pure heart, he bore no malice and forgave without hesitation

Shamus touched many lives and left so suddenly and we couldn’t say goodbye. When you hear good tunes and “ Metallica” ,the laughter of children, a gathering of friends, a hearty argument, see a loving embrace, an artistic tattoo or a struggling  person of any age or gender, think of Shamus, he will be there.

We will miss the laughter, the potential but mostly the unbounded love.

Shamus will be forever missed by Sadie Ryleigh and Alexandra…his wonderful children and his gifts to our world.

We, who remain are heartbroken and will miss him forever.

Mom, Josh Tania and family, Jim, Mary Catherine, Rachel,Bill, Marie, and all his wonderful friends.
