Final Expenses for Shawn Samanica

41786300_1567624734749988_r.jpegIt is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of firefighter, Shawn Samanica.  He was a father, brother, son, loved one and friend to so many. He brought much joy and love to all he knew. There will be a noticeable void with his absence.

Please keep his beautiful daughter, Skylar, and rest of the  family in your thoughts and prayers, and leave a memory of him if you have one. Anything you can give helps the family with funeral expenses. Thank you!

We are so grateful to all of you for your love and support during this difficult time. 


With love,
The Samanica Family

Any additional donations for the family  can be collected by contacting Shawn’s brother, Rick Samanica.

Rick Samanica is the beneficiary of this GoFundMe page, and is delivering  all funds 
to the funeral home for final expenses. 


On behalf of the family, in the most devastating and humble of circumstances, we have setup this GoFundMe campaign to help ask for any donations whatsoever to help ensure they're able to remember and celebrate Shawn's life with a memorial and funeral. I have been a lifelong family friend to the Samanica family and helping alleviate financial strain during this time will allow them to focus on comforting one another during this time of grief.

Thank you for your understanding,
Kim Biske, Orlando FL
