From a young age, Shawn loved to take things apart to see how they worked and put them back together. He loved working on cars and tinkering with anything he could. He was especially proud of his antique clock collection. In good weather, if he was not in the garage working on a project, he would be out driving his “Baby,” a 1973 Triumph Spitfire. In bad weather, Shawn loved to watch classic movies or listen to old time radio shows like “Dragnet.”
