Shaun worked for Wealden District Council for 27 years and was the manager at Wealden Crematorium for two and a half years. He loved cycling, fitness and talking to people. Everyone who met Shaun was won over by his enduring positivity, smile, humour and his passion to help people. During his time as manager one of his greatest achievements was the installation of 126 solar panels on the roof of the building. He was always talking about new ideas and ways of making the crematorium even nicer for families and was very proud of the place.
Shaun died in September 2023 and is sadly missed by his team and everyone who knew and loved him.
