Todd Lamar Shannon

Born: 1/8/1972, Bellingham, Washington
Death: 4/5/2018, Moab, Utah

Interment: 04/13/2018, 1:00 pm, Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery

Todd Lamar Shannon was found in his home on April 5, 2018. The day of death remains uncertain, and even without clear evidence, it seems he passed away in his home at peace. He was 46 years old and born in Bellingham, Washington on January 8, 1972 to Ted Lamar and Jacquelin Kay Heieren Shannon. Todd was not married and had no children.

Todd worked at City Market most of his life. He began part-time as an after-school job, bag boy. After high school, Todd worked as a deli clerk. Over the years he adapted to other areas of the store positions, trying his hand as a checker, in the meat department, some time spent in general merchandise, and his last days back in the freezer packing dairy products. Todd was committed to his job, a hard worker, and enjoyed the people with whom he worked.

From his small perch at City Market, he established many, many, many friendships. It seems everyone in town knew him, most considered him as a gentle giant and a teddy bear. He had a great listening ear, an iron will, a rock-solid work ethic, and once the person was past his tough guy image, he was extremely friendly.

He spent hours puttering at home working on lots of small projects, everything from landscape to construction, to automotive work. He lived in seclusion and loved every minute. He never was a social person, but isolation most certainly was his choice. The latter part of his life he developed and remodeled two separate homes, one in Moab and one in La Sal. He loved to hike and be in the outdoors. He liked to hunt and fish. He'd often take his vehicles off-road, and he loved the Moab area and the backcountry, especially up Millcreek Canyon.

He is survived by his brother Justin Shannon and sister-in-law Terese Shannon. Todd is an uncle to three small children, Eldon Shannon, Jacquelyn Shannon, and Madison Shannon. He has many extended family members with uncles and aunts and cousins, too numerous to mention.

He was preceded in death by mother Jacquelin in 1978, and his father Ted in 2008.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
