March 8, 1972 – February 13, 2016
at the age of 43 years
A casual Celebration of Shawn’s life will be held Sunday May 15, 2016, at 1860 20th St SE, Salmon Arm, B.C. between 12- 4 pm.
Shawn passed away suddenly at the age of 43 years doing something he loved: riding his Harley.
He is survived by his common-law spouse of 13 years, Lana Sadler (nee Indridson), son Donovan, parents Patrick and Dolores, siblings Jason and Kim, nephews Dane, Kayden, Noah and Isaac, numerous relatives as well as many friends and extended family members.
Shawn was often referred to as a “Gentle Giant”; he was a big guy with a huge heart, often buying a coffee or a meal for a homeless person and paying it forward to others in need along his trucking route to various destinations.
He began his trucking life as a Tow Truck/Vehicle Recovery driver which after a few years found him in training for the Big Rigs. He took to the Highway Transportation Industry like a true professional. His time off the highway meant relaxing at home, catching up with friends and spending time with Lana and their little dog Trixie and of course riding his bike when weather permitted.
In Lieu of flowers please donate to your local food bank or to a Riders Toy Run in your area.
Sending love and strength to Lana and all Shawns family during this sad time. Shawn was a great friend and will be dearly missed. Rest in paradise buddy, until we meet again!
Lana, I am so sorry. My prayers and thoughts are with you and family.
