Shannon Crews Sr, a dedicated and hardworking man, a proud Vietnam War veteran, a loving husband, father and grandfather, and a cherished friend, passed away on September 1st, 2023. He leaves behind a legacy of laughter, camaraderie, and a deep love for his wife and family.

Born May 3rd, 1948, Shannon’s life was a testament to unwavering dedication and a passion for living life to the fullest. As a Vietnam War veteran, he displayed remarkable bravery and a commitment to his country. His experiences during those challenging times shaped him into a resilient and honorable man.

Shannon was the rock and backbone within his family. He was a loving father to his children, and his grandchildren held a special place in his heart. His devotion and wisdom will continue to guide them through life’s journey. Shannon’s sense of humor was legendary, and he had a unique ability to light up any room he entered. He was undoubtedly the life of the party, bringing smiles and laughter to all who were fortunate to know him. His presence was a true gift to those around him.

In Shannon’s memory, we fondly remember his daughter Barbara and son Shannon Jr., who preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years Patricia Crews (Peters) and their children, Stephanie, Christopher (Jessica), Heather (Ron), Tanya, Shawn (Olga) and Alexis, as well as a host of beloved grandchildren.

One of Shannon’s greatest joys was spending time in the great outdoors, particularly camping and fishing. His closest companion in these adventures was his dear friend, Raymond Evert, with whom he shared countless stories and cherished memories.

Shannon will forever remain in our hearts, a shining example of resilience, humor, and love. As we bid farewell to a remarkable man, may his memory inspire us to cherish life’s moments, embrace adventure, and always find joy in the company of loved ones.
