Shannon Hellard was a throwback. An old soul. A refreshing reminder of what men should strive to be. What our grandfathers were; hard working, tough as nails, unapologetically masculine, decent and neighborly.
Shannon was killed tragically at work, providing for the family he adored. Shannon was a devoted brother and more importantly a loving husband and father. Shannon loved his wife. He doted on her. Nobody was less ashamed to let the world know how smitten he was with his darling Rachel. And he deeply loved his children. There was no confusion about that. Shannon proudly let you know, often.
Shannon took on a life of back breaking work to give his children a better life. It was his mission. This GoFundMe is to help advance that purpose. The monies recieved will go to Shannon's children to help advance their lives through their future education or however they see fit.
