Shav’yah Fackrell was born on March 27th, 1987 to Sam and Naomi Fackrell. On November 7th, 2020 Shav’yah Fackrell passed away leaving behind his Mother, Naomi Fackrell, his father Sam Fackrell, his brother Joshua Fackrell, his sisters Catherine and Bethany Fackrell. Shav’yah also leaves behind 7 nephews, 1 niece, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and friends. He was loved dearly by all that knew him. Shav’yah grew up in the South Seattle area of Washington and in the Sacramento area of California. He was a bright happy child who was quick to smile, loved to laugh and was quick witted. In his adult life, he loved to spend time with family, friends, his Tribe and coworkers. He was creative beyond measure and used that creativity to create his signature crystal necklaces for those close to him. His necklaces were an extension of himself and his way of helping and healing those around him. He enjoyed deep conversations about anything with those close to him and reached out to those that he felt he might be able to help. He was a healer at heart and a bright soul. We will keep his memory close to our hearts and may we lift his spirit high, aho.

Shav you always knew how to make everyone laugh. I love you and will miss you dearly no matter what. I will always be thinking about you I will always cherish the memories we had growing up. I will always remember the way we always joked around with each other.

I miss you dearly!!! Love you bunches!!!
I cannot bring myself to say goodbye. Goodbye is forever and your not fully gone. I see you in my memories and in my thoughts. I hear your laugh and see your smile. I remember your reasonings of why I shouldn’t do things(I did as a kid) lol and why you thought it was a bad idea. You were always the thinker and decided to be good because of the end punishment from our parents. I was always the doer and figured the punishment would be worth it.
You have always had a sweet soul, kind heart, and an awesome personality.
Rest my cousin!!!
Love you Shav

Dear Shav,

We only just met a year ago. But, in that time, I came to know you as a kind, and thoughtful young man. You never failed to encourage me to be my best self, and to reach for more. And you always made me smile. I will forever miss your laugh, your sense of humor, and your sense of family.

Rest well, my friend.

Dear Shav,

From the moment I saw your smile I knew we had a connection. You were but a wee little one when we met; love at first sight. Because we shared the same birthday, on the morning of each March 27th, I would awaken and know that you were somewhere close by. Though we haven’t seen each other for a long time, my plan is to celebrate with you again someday in that glorious place where you are resting. You are loved deeply and will be missed by many.

The first thing I would like to start out with saying is thank you for bringing light into my life. Thank you for caring for my daughter when you weren’t obligated to. Thank you for loving us. I will carry our time together in my heart. There are still traces of you all over the apartment. I did so many things and had so many experiences because of you which I will never forget.

Just know that you are so loved. Until we meet again, sleep well.

Love Briana.

Many memories with my little cousin... Too many to share them all but a few special ones come to mind.
Like going to the beach with you as a child and collecting rocks, or chasing you in the yard playing hide and seek. What felt like endless hours playing sonic the hedgehog... You were SO good at that game! Begging our parents for sleepovers because we couldn't get in enough playtime. I remember once you blocked the TV so I said, "Shav, would you please move?!" Your response? You started dancing in front of the TV (technically you were moving!) Haha

As we grew older, life happened and we drifted apart but did our best staying in touch. You came and lived with Jon and I for a while and you loved my homemade waffles that I think that's what you had for dinner every night for a week.
I'm grateful you were comfortable enough to reach out to me in times of emotional need. Granted, we didn't always agree and sometimes tried our best not to argue but I think that shows the closeness between us. You were so proud of where you had come in life recently and I was proud of you. You did so much for others in the best way you could.
You loved your parents deeply, so very deeply and told me this on many occasions.
The time we went to the Seattle center and you and Yoshi rode the rides, getting crazy funny! I laughed so hard!
I'm going to miss making memories with you but I'm forever grateful I have them to begin with.
I love you dearly and deeply my little cuz. Rest gently and if you get a moment, tell Adrian that mommy loves and misses him. ❤️

We met when we were 5 and fate kept us from ever getting too far away from each other. No matter what, you always found a way back to me. I believe our souls were meant to find each other. To know each other. We were more like brother and sister and it was always that way for us. No matter the time that passed, always. Jack still sleeps with his dream catcher you got him for Christmas hung in his room above his bed. My necklace is either on my neck or next to my bed as I sleep. I'll miss you always.

All my love to you,

I remember when we were kids, we used to always pick on each other. We weren’t just cousins, we were like siblings.
You have a sweet heart, a sweet soul, and seen the good in people. You wanted cousins to keep close and family to stay in touch.
I love you Shav and will think of you daily.
I’ll miss your face and dorky since of humor. Love you forever!!!
💕love your cousin

A message from my brother that belongs to the world.

"I want everyone in the family to have something i made, no one knows how long they have and my health has always been all over the place, and these will last"

So sad to know that you no longer walk this earth. Yet the years we have had with you are such a blessing.
You brought so much joy in so many lives but especially to your beloved family.
Our lives will never be the same but knowing we have your smile and your gentle spirit in each of us carries us through.
As we move forward in this journey as sad as it is, I know that one day I will see you again.
So until than my handsome nephew may your memory shine bright within each of us. I know in my heart it shines for me.
RIP Shav!!! Always and Forever.
