Shawne Paul Newman passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family in Las Vegas, NV on October 20th at the age of 31.

Shawne was born on September 1, 1986 in Alliance, NE to Scott and Debbie (Jung) Newman. He grew up in Sheridan, WY with his two older brothers Jesse and Andrew. He graduated from Sheridan High School in 2005.

A few years later, he moved to Gillette, WY to expand his parent’s business. He married the love of his life, Lindsey Jean Keyes, on June 25, 2016. The happy couple welcomed son Maverick Lee into the world on April 3, 2017. Lindsey and Maverick were Shawne’s pride and joy. Inheriting his business sense and work ethic from his parents, he was a driven and aspiring entrepreneur in every sense. He founded his first business, Advanced Air Technologies, in 2015, and recently opened another company, Property Paramedics.

Shawne’s smile and personality warmed the room and made him loved by many because he loved many. He had a huge heart and would be the first to offer a helping hand. Shawne lived life to the fullest and enjoyed spending time with his wife and son, golfing, hunting, and candy bars with his meals. It didn’t matter what he was doing, if he was with his family or his large circle of friends, he was happy! His nieces and nephews loved uncle Shwammy immensely. His bond with his brothers was unbreakable.

Even in the end, Shawne’s brothers never left his side, they held his hands and walked him home.

In lieu of flowers please make contributions to the Maverick Lee Newman College Fund at First Interstate Bank, C/O Sherri Kunsman, P.O. Box 2007, Sheridan, WY 82801.
