Shane’s Story

Site created on July 19, 2019


Family and Friends,

As you know, Shane left us to go with Jesus last Tuesday, July 16th.  He was in one of his favorite places - camping and dirt bike riding - with many people who loved him. He had just finished a morning ride and given Gina a kiss in some of his last moments.  He is missed by so many, and the family is so grateful for the support of his friends and family.  Gina, Jacob and Tyler so appreciate the outpouring of love and support; they may not be able to respond to every outreach at this time but certainly wish you to know that it means a lot to them, and wish to share information.

To make it easier to share information regarding services and travel to the area, we are creating this CaringBridge so that you can follow along and have a resource to refer to.  Thank you for visiting; check back for updates and download the app to get notifications for entries.  

The Visitation will be held at Pacific Gardens Chapel on Friday 7/26 from 5-7pm (Address: 1050 Cayuga, Santa Cruz, CA 95062)
The Memorial Service will be held at Santa Cruz Bible Church on Saturday 7/27 at 1pm (Address: 440 Frederick St, Santa Cruz, CA 95062)
Gathering following for friends and family directly following; details to be forthcoming.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributing to organizations that meant a lot to Shane:  
Santa Cruz Little League
Santa Cruz High School Football/Weight Room
**More details will forthcoming on where to send your donations.



Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Gina has created a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to divide amongst the local athletic organizations that have meant so much to Shane.  If you are so inclined, and in lieu of flowers, please consider supporting one of Shane's greatest passions by clicking on the link below:
