Shannon, Sean

May 10, 1965 ~ September 3, 2022

SHANNON, Sean Daniel Lawrence –

May 10, 1965 – September 3, 2022 in his 57th year. Loving husband to Debbie (Hiller) for 29 years. Loving father to Heather Shannon and Kathryn Black. Son of Madeleine Bewsky (Ross), son-in-law of Donna Hiller, stepson of Bridgette Shannon. Brother to Michelle Shannon (Jeff), Debbie Blue (Mark) and Christina Shannon. Brother-in-law to Dale Hiller (Kelly), Ross Hiller (Shawnee). Special uncle to Brittany Westlake, Mackenzie Lumley, Alyssa Hiller and Luke Lumley. Predeceased by his father Lawrence Shannon and father-in-law Roger Hiller. Sean will be missed by his boss Mark (Tracy) Christopher, aunt, uncles and so, so many friends.

Sean was a volunteer fireman for St. Clair Township, Brigden Station for 15 years and a past member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #635 Brigden.  To all who knew Sean, he was never “at a loss” for words. He would sit for hours and tell you stories of his time in N.W.T., his shenanigans as a teen, his tours with friends, or the forever famous “our nations capitol”. He would strike up a conversation with anyone, remember your face but maybe not your name. He was funny, witty, and fast with his one-liners. Sean was a prankster at heart and anyone who “misplaced” their vehicle would know this. He loved making people laugh but was the slowest card/games player around. He has surely left a lasting impression on everyone he has met and the ones he calls friends and family.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Canadian Mental Health Association ( or Canadian Cancer Society ( As per Sean’s wishes, his body has been donated to science.

“A Shithead through and through”

  31. Sean was great friend! I only had the opportunity to meet him in person a few times, but we gamed online almost everyday for almost 20 years. I considered him a dear and best friend even though we had some difference of opinions in the past few years. I will definitely miss his laugh and revives (in game) as he had to help me out more times than I can count. And ohh the stories and one liners I have had the pleasure to hear over the years. RIP brother you will be missed and we’ll game again someday. My dearest condolences to the family.
