Just recently I was going through old photos and came across some of a trip I took in Mississippi to Vicksburg National Park where Shannon took me. This is heartbreaking to find out so late. I met Shannon while living and working in Jackson. Our love for history made us instant friends. It wasn’t long that we began dating. We traveled to many old, historical areas throughout MS. Shannon had an eye for art and even painted and decorated my apartment. He was kind and funny but always reserved about his past. Unfortunately, I moved away and our connection grew more and more distant. I’ve extremely sad and heartbroken to hear of his passing. He was always in my thoughts and prayers.

Shannon is my cousin. We grew up together as children. One of Shannon’s sweetest qualities was how purely he loved and cared for others. He would go out of his way to help someone or something in need. One example being one spring when Ma (our grandmother) had decided to buy a bunch of baby ducks. She kept the ducks in the utility shed behind her house. We were all obsessed with the ducks, but no one more than Shannon. As kids, we worried endlessly that the ducks had to stay out in the shed without anyone to watch after them. Shannon shared these sweet concerns and said he would sometimes sleep in the shed to keep the baby ducklings company. After a few weeks his kindness to the ducks was evident as each baby duck would waddle after him quacking like he was their momma duck. He was so good with animals. We love you, Shannon. You will never be forgotten.

I met Shannon about 10 years ago. He became a vender at my flea market, we shared similar interests in knives, and funky art. Over the years we became friends and was able to hire Shannon from time to time to help clear out estates. Shannon was the hardest working guy I’ve ever employed. He was smart and able to figure out problems and create solutions. Shannon was very skilled in electronics and could fix just about anything once he figured it out. His skills at packing a trailer were nothing short of genius, he could arrange and pack more volume on a trailer than anyone I’ve ever met, I could always be assured that if Shannon packed and tied down the trailer loads we would never have a problem. Shannon was also artistic and created some very unique pieces. The best times with Shannon were just sitting around talking about life and the crazy world we live in. Shannon was an encyclopedia of knowledge and history, that’s what I’ll miss the most about him, the in-depth deep conversations. Many times I witnessed Shannon give his last $5 to a needy stranger. He not only would give you the shirt off his back, he was the kinda guy that would give you his pants, shoes, and socks too. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Hope your at peace now buddy, that monkey is finally off your back.

Those of us fortunate to know Shannon through the Flowood Flea Market counted him as a loyal friend. We were constantly amazed at the depth and breadth of his knowledge, and his intellectual curiosity. We are saddened to learn of his passing, and his presence will be missed. Rest In Peace. -Jack Mallette.
