Shaun was a modern day DaVinci. Whether it was racing bikes, building custom furniture, or creating parts for jet engines, he did it, and he did it well. There was nothing he couldn’t do. He loved his family with all of his heart and was there anytime anyone needed him. He loved to tell good stories from past adventures, play practical jokes and give strong bear hugs that lasted forever. He was one in a billion, and the world without him will never be the same. He is loved and always will be.
In addition to his father and his stepmother, he is survived by his wife, Karlyn Sue Hodnett Mace; children, Hannah, Gabrielle, and Ryan Mace; his bonus children, Zack Fuller and Eli McConnell; extended family and friends.
