During this difficult time, we remember Shawn's life and the impact he made on those around him. His presence will be deeply missed, but his memory will live on in our hearts forever. Shawn Ellingburg was a kind-hearted and compassionate individual with a heart of gold. His infectious sense of humor and radiant smile left a lasting impression on everyone he met. He was a jack of all trades, always following through on his commitments. Shawn loved his children, family and friends, making an effort to check on them and never forgetting a birthday. He found joy in cooking, fishing and being outdoors and even embraced his self-proclaimed role as a doctor. He also loved watching the Washington Redskins, especially when they played against the Dallas Cowboys. While he wasn't perfect, he had strong faith and love for the Lord. Shawn's legacy will be remembered for his kindness, laughter and unwavering love. His memory will inspire us to live with open hearts and embrace the power of genuine care and compassion. Funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 8, 2023 at Roller Funeral Home Chapel in Paris officiated by Pastor Leon Bobo and Elder Larry Moore.
