Shawn Edward Cain

CAIN, Shawn Edward, 39, of Colliers, WV, passed away Wednesday, June 5, 2013, at his home due to natural causes.

Born May 9, 1974, in Steubenville, OH, he was the son of Deborah Williamson Cain of Colliers and the late Terry Lee Cain.

Shawn worked as an IT Analyst for Crown Castle Corporation, Canonsburg, PA. He enjoyed restoring vintage computers and had a love for music that was inherited from his father.

Shawn enjoyed performing with his bands, The Madhatter Band and Milo & the Ranch Worms, as well as sitting in with his brother at various venues. Shawn built his life around his son, Eli, making sure that he had everything he needed. One of his favorite pastimes was watching movies and playing computer games with his son. Even though Shawn had a creative and intelligent mind, he will always be remembered for his quick wit and sarcasm. To know him was to say “Hmm.”

In addition to his mother, Debbie, he is survived by his son, Eli Cain of Follansbee, WV; brother, Brett Cain of Fullerton, CA; maternal grandmother, Vonnie Williamson of Colliers; his girlfriend, Rochette Carelly of Imperial, PA and many friends he made along the way.

In accordance with Shawn’s wishes, his body was cremated.

Visitation will be held Saturday from 4 p.m. until the 6 p.m. funeral services at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street, Weirton, WV.

Shawn’s friends will celebrate his life.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Eli Cain College Fund.
