Shane was a shepherd. A shepherd of people from all walks of life. Shane was a gatherer. A gatherer of the best qualities in all of us and bundling it into his awesome personality. He was caring, charismatic, funny, generous, kind and most of all, loving.
Shane loved all sports. He loved politics. He loved debate. In a word, he loved people and they loved him back.
