January 11, 1989 – November 3, 2022
Shane M Brown, 33 years of age, of Las Cruces, New Mexico, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 3, 2022, in El Paso, Texas.
Shane was born on January 11, 1989, in Hartford, Connecticut, the son of Kenneth “Mark” and the late Lisa (Lewis) Brown. Shane understood that the meaning of life was not encapsulated in earning degrees, making a living, or owning material items. He felt the depth of human experience and refused to trade profundity for the mundaneness of a traditional lifestyle. Instead, he chose to prioritize the needs of the people he loved, to explore the minds of strangers and the extent of human imagination through reading endless books, to experience the support of the earth and the power of the sun through spending a day lying on the ground looking up at the sky, to generate humor and silliness in the lives of those around him, and to satisfy his curiosity and need for independent thought through learning new skills and pouring himself into projects. He lived a genuine and sincere life and is dearly missed by those who truly knew him beyond his witty jokes and ostentatious antics. His soul is free and pure and kind and has finally found its true nature again— a form not bound by the weight of the world. We love you, Shane Mac.
Shane was preceded in death by his mother, Lisa (Lewis) Brown. He is survived by his father, Mark (Leslie Case) Brown, of Aurora, Colorado; a brother, Lance (Meredith) Brown, of Aurora, Colorado; and two sisters, Maggie Brown, of Long Beach, California; and Brooke (Thomas) Summer, of Aurora, Colorado; as well as his paternal grandfather, Howard Slavens, of Monument, Colorado; and his maternal grandfather, Jim Lewis, of Seaman, Ohio; along with many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
