Tributes6/24/2013 - I worked with Shane when he was working as a Security Officer for the Pueblo of Pojoaque. This was when he live in Los Alamos and before he became a Police Officer and Air Marshal. When I last saw Shane he told me that he was going back into the military. I haven't heard from or about him since, but I remember Shane as a hard working guy, dedicated to the job, who was fun to be around. I am very sorry to hear about his passing at such an early age. I know he will be missed by everyone who knew him. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends. - Harry Howard
