Shawn was born May 3, 1981, in Stuttgart, Germany at Bad-Cannstatt Army Base, to Carolyn Crump. Shawn resided with Carolyn in Germany, until returning to the US at the age of 7 months. He stayed with his grandparents until age 2, when he returned to Germany to live with his mom until they transferred to Texas. Shawn saw much of the United States while growing up, residing in Texas, South Carolina, Georgia, and Arkansas, until settling in Arkansas in 1995 then Claremore, OK in 2006. While living in Waldron Arkansas Shawn met and married the love of his life, Rebecca Marie Barham. Shawn and Becca were married June 12, 2004. While in Arkansas Shawn work for J & C Land and Timber Logging Company before moving to Oklahoma. Shawn was a tinkerer and fixer. He could be found taking things apart and putting them back together, even before he could walk, and this continued throughout his life. He was a Jack of All Trades and a skilled machinist. He worked for C&C Machine in Claremore, and most recently for QMI in Pryor, OK. Shawn had a passion for car racing. He was the proud owner of a 2001 Trans Am Firebird. He spent many hours working on the Firebird and keeping it ready to race at the Tulsa Raceway Park, with his friends at HomeGrown Racing. He also loved to spend time out on the lake fishing or just spending time with Becca the kids and their friends. Shawn fiercely loved his family and worked hard to provide and care for them. No matter how much he had worked or how tired he was, he was always willing to lend a helping hand. If you needed something he was always there, all you had to do was holler. He could come up with a solution to any problem that presented itself.
