Obituary

Shawn L. Walker, of Toledo, passed away suddenly on December 20, 2018. He was born in Toledo on January 1, 1963. He is survived by his mother, Leilani Charpentier, and many siblings, Brenda Goodwin (Jerrell Baker), Lynnette Walker (John Miller), Rost Walker, Jennifer (James) Chaput, William (Staci) Rieman IV, and Kelli (Craig) Hufford. He was preceded in death by his father, Paul Walker; stepfather, William Rieman; sister, Bridgett; and grandparents.

Known by all of his nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews as the fun uncle, he was always up for trying new adventures with them: Amber (Kellis) Roberts with Sean, Mikayla, Jaryn, Chayten, Ashtyn, Brentyn, and Kellyn. Justin (Christine) Goodwin with Aaron, Alexis, and Leila. Devan Stavish (Courtney). Bridgette (Stephen) Klostermeier. Travis Slayton with Salina and Gabriel. Ryan Weiss with Carter and Autumn. Justina, Linsey, and Ryan (Allison) Hufford with Abigail and Wesley. Jacquelynn, James, Joseph, and Jace Chaput. As well as Billie Louise Rieman and Jude Johnson.

Some of his best times were spent with them in the Great Smokey Mountains; hiking, climbing many waterfalls, collecting rocks (gold), rocking on the porch, riding rollercoasters, or just hanging out playing board games, dice games, or foursquare. He was always up for sledding the hills with them at Highland Park, and rarely missed a trip to the zoo. They will dearly miss their Uncle Shawn.

Shawn’s Favorite pastime was maintaining his immaculate yard. He enjoyed the pleasure his yard work gave to his family and neighbors. Each and every spring, he would repaint all the details of his many lawn ornaments by hand- even painting his own hands in the process. He would also restock his beautiful pond with fish and not a spring would go by that he couldn’t wait to plant fresh flowers everywhere (except tulips). Of course, all the kids would be there to help in their own way, and Uncle Shawn would tell everyone to just let them be, because they were having fun. He would never say no to anyone needing a hand with their landscaping; this was part of who he was.

When late fall came it was time to close the pond, however, the work for winter would begin. Christmas was just around the corner. Christmas could only mean one thing: It was time to decorate the house inside and out with the Christmas displays. His displays and tireless efforts were honored by the neighborhood association on more than one occasion. He worked endless nights and weekends making sure everything was perfect. He was very proud of the decorations.

Shawn was not only known as Uncle Shawn, though. He was also Known as the man who would do anything for anyone that needed a hand without ever expecting anything in return. His contagious smile and laughter could be heard by everyone that he helped. Shawn was a man of many talents- from working on someone’s car, to fixing their water leaks, and so much more. There was nothing he couldn’t- or wouldn’t do for anyone.

For the last six years, Shawn was employed by the Reynolds Garden Café, where he was thought of as family by everyone. He enjoyed helping to keep the place in top-notch shape, and was willing to lend a hand outside of work to help his coworkers in any way that he could. The outpouring of support to his family at home from his family at work is a testament to his ability to touch the hearts of those around him. He was a one-in-a-million kind of person with a giant heart of gold. All who knew him will miss him more than any amount of words could describe.
