Shaun loved everyone, from young children to the elderly. He was kind and generous to a fault. He enjoyed golfing but was left in the dust by his 83-year-old female cousin. Shaun loved going to Nebraska Sandhills with his Grandpa and being in the country. He was a loving father to his daughter Cristine Mae Mittler.

“He was the best son a Mother could have. Shaun was thoughtful and I always remember him bringing me special gifts whenever he went to Cracker Barrel,” recalled his mother Joyce Turner.
