Shawny lived his life with intensity, every single one of his 22 years, 6 months, and 16 days. He was passionate about everything he did from earning his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, to his many different jobs, to his love for fishing, bowfishing, and especially hunting. He was a waterfowler to the core. He was a young man with boundless energy and he loved bringing others along on his adventures. Shawn mentored so many, and those young people in the field are a living legacy to Shawn’s life. He will be held close, in the hearts of so many people; people who were fortunate to be illuminated by the bright light that was Shawn Michael Killeaney. We love and miss you, Shawn.
