  4. Dear Williams Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Shaun was a high school classmate. We played rec league basketball together and bowled together at Eastgate lanes. He had the greatest smile and laugh, along with an infectious positive spirit and great sense of humor. Sincerely, Geoff Kingsley

  5. I will always remember when Shaun was a toddler, he had the most beautiful long eyelashes and an infectious smile. When I sat behind him and his Mom in Church, he would turn around and I’d wink at him. He would start giggling, and we would both be in big trouble!!!
    Prayers to Williams Family

  6. Dear Williams Family, I’m very sorry for your loss. Shaun will not be forgotten. He made an impression on everyone he met. The class of 1983 will remember him very fondly. He was liked by all. He was sweet, kind and had a smile that lit up a room. He did love sports and in talking to him through out the years, he loved being a dad. His eyes lit up when he talked about Shaun Jr. (including him playing baseball). Praying for you all.
