November 7, 1965 - January 20, 2023
In loving memory ~
It is with tremendous sorrow we announce the sudden death on Gartley Point Road at the beach shore of Bartel Road. Police confirmed that it appeared to be trauma free and likely accidental because of all the debris.
Shawn was a kind, gentle man with a pleasant personality. Shawn was a certified auto body professional. Disability and toxic landlords prevented employment success. Covid ended all opportunities. Shawn spent many years struggling with addiction, but had 15 years clean. He was very proud to have a valid driver's licence. Shawn did not want a funeral. Instead, his wish was for a Memorial Bench, which I will have placed near the accident site later.
Thank you to all our friends on Gartley and in the Comox Valley.
Bye for now dear son.
Sandra J. Ryan and Larry Barons and family.
