Shawn M. Dean

ShawnDeanWHITEHALL – Shawn M. Dean, 30, of Whitehall and formerly of Queensbury, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, August 21, 2016, after struggling with addiction. 

Born February 12, 1986, in Glens Falls, he was the son of Robert Dean, Sr. and Nina Gustafson. 

Shawn was a graduate of Queensbury High School, attended Stony Brook University and a graduate of the Tool and Die Maker Apprentice Program of General Electric.

He was employed by General Electric in Rutland. 

Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Shawn will say that he was the most kind and caring person. An articulate man with so much knowledge to share and always ready to discuss or debate, he was the best person for late night talks. Never too busy to lend a listening ear to those in need, he did all he could to bring a smile to your face. From a very young age it was obvious that Shawn was full of so much love. From saving all the stray animals to his fan favorites in sports (Dolphins and Red Sox) Shawn was always rooting for the underdog. It was not uncommon for him to stop what he was doing to help someone in need. He would help the homeless, pick up hitchhikers, give you the shirt off his back, the food on his plate, or better yet cook you your own. Shawn enjoyed hunting, fishing, cooking and rock climbing with his friends and family. He found peace and solitude in music, especially Led Zeppelin and Tool. From the time his daughter was a baby he would play his favorite songs for her, the two of them laughing and singing together. Above all, the most important part of his life, his pride and joy, was being a father to his beautiful daughter Cambria. She was the love of his life and he always had the biggest smile whenever she was by his side. She will carry that smile for all that loved him to keep his memories alive in our hearts

 He is predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Irving and Mary E. Dean, Sr.; his maternal grandmother Eunice Clark; and his cousin and work partner, Logan Dean.

Many people have learned valuable life lessons with his sound advice and have done better for themselves because of his encouragement.
