YATES, Shawn

Posted by on July 26, 2017

It is with profound sadness we wish to announce the passing of Shawn after a brief and courageous battle with cancer in the arms of the love of his life, Charlene, with son and best friend Brad by his side.

A true gentleman, wonderful husband, devoted father, and loyal friend, Shawn touched many people’s lives and will be sadly missed by all the people fortunate enough to have known him. Shawn leaves behind his soul-mate of 34 years, Charlene, the joy of his life, son Bradley, loving mother Shirley Yates (George, 2008), father-in-law Jack Fontaine (Pa, 2012). Brother and sisters-in-law John Fontaine (2003), Carole Tobin, Gary Fontaine, Christine Gignac (1994), Brian Fontaine, Karen Fase (Rick). Shawn was an adored uncle to Garry Fontaine; Kaylyn and Jack Tobin; Adam, Kate, and Lauren Fase, who will miss him dearly. Shawn was blessed with many true friends, Debbie and Dean, Mike, Egidio, Pete, Tony, Vlad, and Brad, to mention a few.

Shawn was an avid golfer who was happiest walking the fairway of an early morning tee time, enjoying a good concert, and his NFL football. Shawn loved his life, and lived it to the fullest. He was a dedicated employee of Chrysler (ARDC) for 33 years, and was always eager for a new experience with family and friends.

For those who wish, donations may be made to Transition to Betterness or the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County. Memorial visitation on Friday from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Memorial Service at 10:00 a.m. at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841.
