To the East family, we know your loss is great and our prayer is for the Lord to provide you with strength and comfort through this difficult time. 
Shawn was a friend to many, including our family. He has always been a hard worker and a strong  part of our community. Everyone knew him and his presence was unmistakable. He would greet you with his raspy voice and his kind smile. He had stories to share an jokes to tell, his laugh filled the room. Shawn will be truly missed because he was truly loved.
