My dear friend Shaye was a man of great passions and purpose; hence when he loved something, he truly loved it, and when he had a job to do, he did it wholeheartedly!! His passions included cars, pie, laughter, baseball, his charming cottage up north, his lovely family, and God. His family was paramount to him, as he felt all seven of his beautiful children and his loving, angel wife, Lisa, were true blessings from God. Shaye’s passion for life, and will to live were so exceptional, it led him to the greatest passion of all; his love and deep faith in God. With God’s love he understood that his health challenges made his life purposeful. Shaye inspired hundreds, as he spoke openly and passionately about his faith and his unique miracle of cancer survival. From his own profound experiences, he encouraged others to find courage in their own lives and to live each day with joyful gratitude and passion. Shaye’s mission of not just merely living, but living with grit, grace, and faith is a testament we should all emulate.
