Shaun's real constant in his life, and the biggest love of his life, was his family. His parents were always by his side through all the trials and always supported him. His brothers, Zane and Cody were his heros and knew he could always count on them for anything. His sister, Canaan was always a pleasure to tease. Apparently he thought she could not cook even implying "Yes, you DO boil the eggs for tuna fish". He was affectionately known as "Uncle Dude" to his much adored nieces and nephews to whom he had a special relationship with.
An avid outdoorsman, Shaun loved to fish, deer hunt and taking every opportunity to share his adventures. He will be remembered as a true Pine Grove Panther, Mississippi State Bulldog and St. Louis Cardinal fan.
Shaun was well-known in his community, loved by so many and was a great friend to all. He leaves behind many memories to be cherished and his family finds comfort in knowing they will see him again.
Visitation will be from 5 PM to 9 PM Thursday, November 4 and will continue Friday, November 5 from 9 AM until service time at Wesley Congregational Methodist Church.
In addition to his parents, wonderful memories will continue to be shared by one sister, Canaan Collins (Trent) of Dumas, two brothers, Zane Bryan (Abby) of Dumas and Cody Wayne Bryan (Kati) of Ripley, his maternal grandmother, Betty Mauney of Ripley, two nieces, Allie Havas and Kylee Sullivan, three nephews, Bentley, Jaxon and Pryor Wayne Bryan, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and many many friends.
