Born in Worcester, MA on November 14, 1984, Shawn lived in Leicester, Oxford, and Uxbridge over the years. He was a graduate of Oxford High School and was involved in their ROTC program. He was employed as a Service Technician for Polar Beverages in Worcester for 21 years and worked at the Oxford Walmart during high school.
Shawn loved metal detecting and bottle digging and recently got into magnet fishing. Recently he discovered two old fashioned granite drills in a local quarry. He was fascinated with WWII history. Over the years he enjoyed scary movies, deer hunting with relatives and friends, audio books and trips with his family. He collected and seasoned his food with hot sauces from all over. “The hotter the better”, he often said.
