Beloved son of Jo-Ann Whitten and predeceased by his father William Whitten. Brother of Dan and his wife Lynda, Kevin and his wife Irene and to Ryan and his wife Laura. Father of Kory, Shannon and Mackenzie. He will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Family and friends may gather at the Andrews Community Funeral Centre - 8190 Dixie Road, Brampton (North of Steeles Avenue) 905-456-8190, for a Celebration of Shawn’s Life on Tuesday July 3rd, 2018 from 5-8 pm.

Shawn was the best man at my wedding and one of my best friends in life. I wish I had gotten to see him last year. I will miss my friend, he was a true friend and partner in crime. RIP my friend. We all loved you no matter what.

Shanni and Family,
We were very fortunate getting to spend time with Shawn over the last few weeks at the trailer. He was so happy to be at the lake. Shawn was a true friend and we will always remember his smile and sense of humor when we think of him. Please know you are all in our thoughts during this difficult time.
