Condolences to the entire Cirka and Scott family and friends. Aunt Tena, Uncle Shane will forever be in our hearts. I will always remember his great laugh and how he was always willing to share his smile and his side of the story with family. He had a huge caring heart that is for sure. And it was surrounded with steel....he was one tough guy :) He will be missed by many, but let us keep close to us the wonderful times we shared with him. Tena, Mikee, Ashley, Nana, Jamie and family---Darryl and I are always here if you need anything at all. May time heal all of your hearts. Xoxo -Erika Wallace & Darryl Scott

Where there is sorrow there is pain and it seems that we have reached the age when life stops giving us things and starts taking them away.
It has taken away far too soon our son, our husband, our father, our brother, our uncle our friend Shane.
The heartache will slowly be replaced with our fondest memories of Shane from working on cars to barbecuing in two feet of snow or just hanging out .
My deepest condolences to you Tena and Mike and the family that has been left behind i share the pain of losing my friend my brother.
I am finding impossible to say goodbye so i will just say see you later see you some day on the other side bud.

Oh Uncle Shane! You're a one of a kind soul, and I'll miss you immensely. Your laugh is forever in my ears, and you were a walking ball of love and bear hugs, no matter if it was months between visits. I know you made an impact on my boys as well, especially Rowan, who named his hamster Uncle Shane at all of 2 years old. Aunt Tena and Michael (as well as Ashley, kiddies, Nana, my mom...) my heart is so sad with your loss, but we'll continue to support each other in our small little fam-jam as we always have. Love to you all, and uncle - till we meet again ❤️

Shaner was not only a brother but a great friend! We shared a lot of fun and crazy times together. But we also shared many serious times, and he was always there to listen and give a good word of encouragement. I will not only miss his jokes but the way he fit so well in our family. My sister was blessed to spend her life with him. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, brother, brother in law, uncle, great uncle and son. Shaner will leave a big void in all of our lives. Our condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you all. We miss you Shaner!!!
Love Norm Sr. And Sue

I am flooded with so many wonderful memories of Shaner. Looking at old photos seems like yesterday. The host with the most, best shiskabobs and home made bread and butter pickles. The love for his family and tender heart unwavering for his mothers is something we will always remember. So quick with a laugh, great sense of humor and a smile that would brighten any room. I pray for peace and comfort to every ones heart . Our deepest sympathy to you all. Terry and Scotty
