Shane Cole Nunn, age 44, of Mindenmines,
Missouri, unexpectedly passed away Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at his home.
Shane was born September 11, 1972 in
Visalia, California. A natural athlete
and sports enthusiast, he excelled in football and was an award-winning
wrestler in high school. Shane had a
life-long love of music, was a dance instructor and a self-taught
guitarist. While living in California,
he had worked as a heavy equipment operator, truck driver, welder, and
electrician before attaining a position as superintendent of the northwestern
district of Dover Elevators Service Department.
At the peak of his career, a fall left Shane disabled and he endured
much pain for the rest of his life. Last
year, he moved to Mindenmines, where he quickly made friends and was always
busy. His knack for making something out
of nothing earned him the title “King of Recycling” and he could turn something
viewed by many as worthless into treasure.
Shane shared his artistic talent and creativeness to raise funds for
churches and was a wonderful cook who loved to see friends and family enjoy his
delicious food. Above all else, Shane
loved the Lord and his family.
Survivors include his mother, and Edith Nunn; a son, Cole (Whitney) Nunn, Boise, Idaho; two
daughters, Kimberly Nunn (Anthony Cardenas) and Mariah Nunn of Redding,
California; a brother, Ike Nunn of Arkansas; two grandchildren, Philip Cardenas
and Arhea McLeod.
Shane was preceded in death by many family
members including his father, Marvin
Phillips, grandparents, Annie & Emery Miller and Paul & Lovie
Nunn, and uncles, Paul Nunn, Jr. and Gary Williams.
Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m.
Thursday, March 9th, at Daniel Funeral Home where the family will
receive friends from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m. Thursday.
Memorial contributions are suggested to
the Nunn family to help with funeral expenses.
