After working for Beloit Special Machining for years Shawn switched career paths working as a Journeyman Carpenter with his eldest son. He enjoyed being the handyman to anyone he could help, golfing, fishing, hunting at the family farm and making delicious food to share while having a good time with his family and friends. As a sports fan he enjoyed the Packers, Brewers and Wisconsin Badgers the most. Rock music, Carhartt, and Coors Lite were three staples in his perfect day. Shawn will be deeply missed by his huge family and his many friends that he considered family.
