    In a board with thousands of members, he was one of the most memorable.
    I'll miss seeing him around here.

    I did notice that he hadn't posted here for a few days but I thought he was just busy with something else.

    Man. This is nuts. Talked to the guy in PMs often enough too. Damn. :(  RIP man, I'm going to miss our debates over various parts of the fandom. Hopefully, you're in a better place now. :(

    It's good to know he had a lot of friends on the boards here, I was one of the few friends he had here in Winnipeg as he wasn't able to get out as much as he'd like. I'll definetly pass along any condolences you guys post at the funeral.

    Having met Shaun at Botcon and getting to be really good online friends since last year, I am beyond devastated.

    Shaun was the kind of guy who was just a great person. He never had a bad word to say about anyone, to me at least, and he really was genuinely upset whenever someone on the boards didn't seem to like him. He always had an upbeat attitude, which is especially divine in someone who did have a number of physical ailments. He could make you laugh, and he could make you think. He was probably one of the most sincere people I have ever had the fortune to know, and that is a truly rare thing.

    I always kind of looked out for Shaun like a friend should, even though I really didn't know him that well compared to others. Especially when he was bothered by something/someone on the boards. I would, of course, at times try to make him understand that letting it bother him didn't do any good, but usually I would just listen and offer advice. He brought out the better parts of my nature, and I am sure like many others I can safely say my life was better for having known him. Even if that time was too short.

    I will miss you Shaun, thank you for the good times and the memories. May you rest in peace because someone like you is definitely in the best place of all. (Coming from an Agnostic)

    Please do. I am totally in shock over this. I was so looking forward to rooming with him at the convention, and having a good time with him. It is wow. That is all I can say.

    Wow... I really didn't know him past his posts on here but I always saw him around BotCon and knew of his passion for Transformers and this fandom (again, only from his posts here). Truly a sad day... My condolences go out to his family and friends. I'm sorry I never got to know him personally, he sounds like a person I could've considered a good friend.

    This is horrible. My wife and I were supposed to have dinner with him the first night we got to Botcon. It is so seldom you meet guys as nice as Shaun. RIP buddy.

    Damn, this place won't be the same without him. We definately need to do something in his honour at Botcon - anyone else with me on seeing if we can get a minutes silence in remembrance at the awards dinner?

    H was just posting here just two days ago... he was such a cool guy. My God this is just a little too unreal, I really don't know what to say.

    My heart goes out to his family and freinds.

    This is just horrible.

    I didn't know him all that well but I did converse with him a few times and he was a really nice guy. This just sucks on so many levels.

    Fucking shit man... just fucking shit.

    I don't know what else to say.

    RIP Shaun :( 

    I gave him a grief for time to time, but he seemed like a nice guy, this really makes me sad.
