Shawn Concannon Aka Bones_Sox63

Recommended Posts

Shawn Concannon

12/10/63 - 5/31/14

 

Originally from the UK, Shawn embraced the US, loved greyhounds, and life lived boldly.

Shawn endured many brain surgeries in recent years. The cancer finally took him.

If there is a bright side to this he is once again reunited with his best greyhound boy, Bones.

 

Shawn has been a notable figure for many years at Mountain Hounds. He had been hoping he could return this year. He did in spirit.

We learned Saturday at MH that Shawn had passed and announced it at our evening gathering.

We could all close our eyes and still hear him yelling Bloody Hell!

 

Larger than life. Truly missed.

Godspeed Shawn.

Shawn will be missed by many. Missed his calling bingo or greyhound as we call it at Mountain Hounds the last 2 years. He was so full of life and I am glad to call him my friend.

Godspeed Shawn, go and find Bones.

OH NO! I'm so sad that we never got to meet in person. We used to talk on the phone before he moved to the US; so long ago that it was before he was diagnosed with cancer, but after the dizziness had started. Sadly we pretty much lost contrct a few years ago except for an occasional catch up email.

 

This is so sad, but I can only imagine the joyful reunion he had with Bones and Sox.

 

RIP my friend.

I am heartbroken at this news. :weep

I remember him from the MH I attended in 2012. There was such a cheerfulness about his person that was infectious.

Still remembering the picture he posted of when he visited a soccer game.
Shawn's humor might not have been for everyone, but if you like the British humor, he was your guy.

After he moved to the US, we occasionally had contact but it looked like he had found his place. Still, I miss seeing him pop up on Greytalk and to know he will never pop up again makes me feel sad.

My condolences to the people who were close to him.

So sad. I always admired his very positive attitude, and thought that his bravery and sense of humor was inspiring. Such a loss.

I never met him, but he was a fixture on here for so long. I remember when he was still in Scotland, pre-cancer, and had Bones and Sox with him, I think. After he moved over here, I guess I thought he'd beaten it. So sorry to hear he didn't. Shawn will definitely be missed.

Shawn we love you and will miss you always. I remember his first MHs, he came to the cabin to introduce himself. He said I don't have a greyhound right now, but heard about the event and want to help out. Then proceeded to tell me about his brain cancer and what to do if he had a seizure, showed me his medical card, airlift card, Mum's phone number. I stood there thinking OH MAN please don't have a seizure here. He then shared a beer with Rick and proceeded to make us laugh like crazy.

 

Some MHs years were better than others for him but he always knew how to have fun and faced his illness with smiles and laughter.
