This was my grandmothers nephew. I hadn't seen him in years. We always played together when kids. I'm sorry for the family's loss.

I worked for Shane at 3TEC & he not only gave me my first big break but passed on his passion for Accounting which led to a passion of Investment Banking. He & Becky were so kind & both mentored me through my first pregnancy. I'll never forget the smile on his face when I told him after a long journey that I was pregnant. Becky got pregnant soon after & I'll also never forget his happiness in sharing the news right back. My deepest condolences for all of his family. Gone too soon but never forgotten. Prayers for his family during this difficult time but he will still live on in our hearts & memories.

My deepest condolences to Shane's family. I met Shane when I was in 5th grade, and he was in the 4th....although he was only a few months younger than me. We went our separate ways during the teen years, but I happened to catch up with him again a few years later while he was doing an audit for the company I worked at (he was fresh out of college). His humor and smile was always contagious, but he'll forever be in MY memory as the little blonde haired boy running around the school playground. I think I kind of like it that way...... God Bless you all during this difficult time.

Shane was a good friend and brother. His family and friends spoke of him dearly and we’re so proud of his accomplishments. He grew up in a close community and I’m guessing he kept that close community feeling in Texas. We will miss you much and continue to talk about your emoji texts you sent to Jeff and the shannanigans you and your friends and family did growing up. Much love and hugs to the Stemple’s.

We were saddened and shocked to hear about the passing of Shane. I had the great honor of working with Shane as his IT consultanting company for both his company's and his home network. We became friends over the years working together and I was priveleged to meet his beautiful little girls and family. Another honorable and just a plain ol good guy taken way too soon. God Bless you Shane and your family. You will be missed.

We will greatly miss Shane . We are so grateful for all the memories and fun trips with our girls we shared. Our daughter will be a lifetime friend with Addison and McKenna. His smile always lifted the spirit of the room . Shane introduced me to golf and we had a lot of laughs on the golf course . Rest in peace my friend.
