His family is eternally grateful for the sacrifices made to prolong his life and the resolve of the transplant team at UC Health.

Shaun’s passion in life was music. He was the lead singer/keyboardist in the band, Bone Camaro, in college, a music director at KWSC 91.1 FM and active in the Lincoln/Omaha music scene during his life.
Shaun was cremated at A Better Place Funeral and Cremation in Denver.
There will be a Rosary at 6:00 pm on Friday, February 16, 2018, at St Mary’s Catholic Church, 1420 K St in Lincoln, Nebraska. 
Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at St Mary’s Catholic Church, 1420 K St in Lincoln. 
Shaun was a selfless soul with a vivid imagination and a singular sense of humor. He was magnetic and proved that perseverance is a virtue during his life. With that in mind, His family would ask that you make a donation to either the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Nebraska or the Children’s Organ Transplant Association in his name in lieu of flowers.
