Shannon had a great love for fishing, camping and everything Kentucky Wildcats. (If you know, you KNOW.) He absolutely adored his wife and lived for taking her out to dinner and surprising her with so many fun vacations. He was a kind and generous man, so selfless and honorable, always putting his family and friends before himself. His raw sense of humor will be sorely missed…

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Linda O’Neal; his brother, Frank “Wayne” O’Neal, and his brother-in-law, Joel O’Neal.
