Phillip James Shannon

.Phillip James Shannon passed away on Sunday, April 25, 2021. Phil was born on December 29, 1964 and grew up in Strafford, Missouri. He is fondly remembered by his Strafford classmates as Snoopy in the school play. Phil loved hobbies and found wonderful communities through his love of motorcycles and craft beer brewing. He enjoyed live music and was a supporter of local bands. Phil could often be found sharing coffee with friends at the Dancing Mule. Phil is preceded in death by his father, Hugh Shannon, and his close friend, Tim Woodworth. Phil is survived by his son Dr. Dalston Ward, his mother Doris Weber, and his sisters Karen and Dena. Phillip strongly believed that “friends are the family that you choose” and he chose a large family. Among them, he is survived by Eric Smith, Susan Sawinski, Joseph and Adrian Laflen, Dave and Sheri Gray, Kim Woodworth, and Monte and Tina Fletcher; and his godchildren Madelyn, Charlie, Roenick, Emma, Grace, Hannah, Quinn and Griffin. His large and loving community of friends extends far beyond this list. He will be greatly missed. Memorial services will be held on Thursday, April 29 at 5 PM at Adams Funeral Home in Nixa, Missouri. Arrangements are under the direction of Adams Funeral Home, Nixa.

Feel no guilt in laughter, hed know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. We cannot grieve forever; he would not want us to. Hed hope that we would carry on the way we always do. So, talk about the good times and the way we showed we cared, The days we spent together, all the happiness we shared. Let memories surround us, a word someone may say, Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day, That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, And fills us with the feeling that he is always near. For if we keep those moments, we will never be apart, And he will live forever locked safely within our hearts. -- Anon Good bye, my friend.

"Those we love dont go away, They walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear. "
