Shannon (Duke) LaMar Hale 64, passed suddenly on Sunday, January 29, 2023. He was born November 20, 1958, to Gary LaMar Hale and Elna LeAnn Goodsell Hale, both deceased.
Shannon spent his teenage years growing up in Newton, Utah. He was loving and kind to everyone. He was especially close to his young Aunts and Uncles who were near his age. He lived with Grandpa Wes and Grandma Elna Goodsell for several years, and they were like parents to him. He loved them both dearly and it was very hard for him when they both passed in
His parents divorced when He was young, but when LeAnn married Jack Yoder, Shannon had his very own fishing buddy! They were very close and made many memories together. “Uncle Jack” truly became Shannon’s dad. Jack also preceded him.
Due to health issues, he spent his later years at Sunshine Terrace in Logan. He was well cared for by the staff there. His grandparents and later his wonderful Aunts Joyce and Linda were constant visitors. They organized birthday parties and made sure he could attend family reunions. His situation was not ideal by any means. but he always remained happy and full of fun. Shannon loved to tease just about anyone who made his acquaintance.
There will be a visitation on Saturday February 4, 2023, from 2 to 2:45 p.m. at the Newton Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. Interment will follow at the Newton Cemetery following the visitation. No formal funeral services will be conducted at this time, but a Celebration of Life will be held in the summer.
The family would like to offer a special thank you to everyone at Sunshine Terrace for the dedication, love, and support in Shannon's care. From personal phone calls with status updates to assisting with transportation to appointments and even family events, the staff has gone above and beyond. It has given us all a sense of security knowing that he was being so well cared for and respected for the many years he has resided there.
