In remembering Shannon, we reflect on the many lives he inspired, mentored and changed. As a father, he always led with a guiding hand on his childrens shoulder. As a coach in his community, he not only led the Gold Gloves to many district championships, he forever altered the lives of his players and those who were privledged to coach beside him, by being a leader on and off the field. In the office where, as an Operations Manager, his leadership is woven into the achievements of the team he passionately guided.


Shannon had a way of teaching life lessons when you least expect it. No man is indispensable, but some are irreplacable, and Shannon Ramey is one of them.
