Shannon was known for his love of the outdoors, particularly fishing and hunting, and had a talent for bringing laughter to those around him. He loved to pull pranks, which entertained him and others to no end. Shannon had a beautiful voice that he only shared with others late in life. He made friends with everyone that he met; people could not help but like Shannon because he was so entertaining, and so joyful. Shannon had a big heart and beautiful smile.
