Shane was such an amazing person. Really an indescribable personality-just full of life.
I always thought he was the coolest growing up- he was 6 years older than me, so he did everything first. He was so handsome, and outgoing, and just loved life. I would never have heard of BB King, or ever drank a decent beer if it wasn't for him.
He would be the center of attention at every family gathering, with stories, doing crazy things like making the kids dance and sing, and sometimes moving them- mannequin-style to songs before they could even walk. Just silly, goofy and fun. Always upbeat, even when he was going through this horrible illness. He loved movies, music, food, and of course his family. He is one of the best fathers I have ever seen. I just can't believe he's really gone- this leaves a very big hole in our family. Rest easy now. You will be missed more than you know. I love you scrapper.

SHANE, so many memories. The day he was born, first grandchild in the family and adorable. How his presence in our Southboro home during my brother’s death made everyone feel so much better. He was a three-year-old at my wedding. I have a photo of he and I taken that day that I love. Swimming in Grandma Perham’s pool with his siblings and cousins. Attending his high school graduation party in Barre. Watching him pitch a baseball game on the way home from Vermont and recalling the team tagged him “the ice man” and boy he was good. Shane’s wedding day with Margaret, it was a day of love and happiness all around. I can still see them dancing and jumping up and down to “Jessie” by the Dropkick Murphys. His love of baseball, the Red Sox, his family, parents, siblings and friends was palpable. He came to our Pumpkin Fests and Fishing Derbies with the family and I could see what a wonderful dad he was—patient and kind with a twist of that quirky sense of humor. Having the chance to connect with him over the last two months was a pure gift. I found this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference you have lived and lived well.” Well Shane, you certainly made a difference. Our heartfelt condolences to Margaret and the children, Karen and Tim, Caitlin, Colin and family.

It would take me a while to write all my memories of my older brother. He was full of energy, a gifted athlete, a guy who loved good beer, golf, Bill Murray movies, and live music. We shared a room together growing up. We were small town boys who played countless games of wiffle ball when we were young. So many of my early memories are of things we did together, like going to Red Sox games and to the movies with our dad. Dangerous sledding. Playing in the backyard until it got dark in the summer time. He was the one who got me into all the great bands: the Beatles, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Ozzie, Radiohead. I'll never forget him bringing home the White Album and the Zeppelin box set. That stuff blew my mind. Changed my life. We could always talk about music, baseball, and classic TV shows like Seinfeld and the Simpsons and Breaking Bad. He was an outgoing friend, a hard worker, and he loved his family. I was looking forward to many more years of knowing him, arguing with him, grabbing a pint at a local brewery, talking about our kids, watching movies at his house. I can't believe he's gone. I loved him, and I miss him.

I remember Shane’s kind and good spirited soul during the summer visits at the grandparent’s house. So many wonderful memories of playing tug-of-war, wiffle ball and eating dixie cup ice cream. So happy he was a part of my childhood.
