I first met Shon in 2002 when Michelle brought him home for a graduation and a wedding. He also was holding my new baby cousin Promise and I so eagerly wanted to hold her. He said no because he thought I was 10. I was 14. Smh. When I turned 19 he called me and asked where was I going to be in 5 years ? I had no idea and he suggested I join the Air Force and make something of myself. And in I went. Always looking out for me when he didn’t have to. Definitely changed the course of my life. Thank you Shon. Our relationship truly blossom throughout the years. I will always remember them. Even when he randomly thumps my arms or push on my messed up shoulder to annoy me, I’ll miss it. He was the first person I called when I was sad over a guy and he gave me solid advice. He said “why do you care? He’s a loser.” If you know Shon, you can hear the way he draws out the word loser. And oddly enough that was enough for me to move forward. He texted me often just to check on me. And when I went too long without saying hi, he had no problems telling me he was offended and he was mad. I’m definitely going to miss him.
On Monday last week, I walked downstairs because I saw him sitting in his office and nosy me asked him what he was doing. He explained to me his course and frustrations with it and I just listened not understanding one bit of it. He stood up and gave me the biggest hug he has ever given me. And throughout the day he sat next to me and spoke with me about random things. I asked if I could live at 54 for free and he told me I couldn’t live with him for free. Ha! I really wanted to stay and be with my family. He was the only man who faithfully cared about me, checked on me and called me Killa. I love you Shon, forever in my heart.

Me and my husband is so sorry for your lost. I remeber when I met him when you was in Bldg one.

Love Glenda and Royce Neal
I feel like I loss another brother in less than 3 years. We all just had a great time together as a family just over a week before Shon passed. I can still see us standing by the grill talking about fishing and going camping. The little peace I personally have is that I was able to hug Shon and tell him I love you before going back home. I've been thinking and praying continuously for family and friends to find some type of peace.
Judy, we are sorry for your loss. Your family is in our prayers.
Judy, we are so sorry about your loss. Your family is in our prayers.
I’m still in shock here. Shon, man we’ve been friends/brothers since 1997. Shared so many memories, this right here is heart breaking. My heart is heavy and full right now. I truly appreciate God allowed us to hang out while I was deployed to Honduras back in 2014/2015 again. Who knew that would be our last 7 months in one another’s presence. We kept making plans for either me to get up to Jersey or you down here to DC but time wasn’t on our side. I’m truly going to miss you my brother! I pray for your family as they grieve and pray they can find peace in knowing you’re at peace. REST in PEACE, REST in POWER, REST! Love you bruh
You will be missed be all. I want to thank GOD for allowing me the pleasure of sharing a meal and very impactful conversation. I have grown as a man from your words and the way you have shown me how a man should treat his family and friends.
The Lord is our shepherd we have everything that we need he let’s us rest in green meadow he leads us beside peaceful streams he renews our strength and directs our path and he has now called you home. May God bless your family. Miss you cousin . Johniar (prute)
Clarence was an amazing human being, friend, and mentor. I learned a great deal from watching him live his life with grace, passion, and dignity. The world is a lesser place with his passing.
The absolute best supervisor I had while I served. A lot of people turned their nose up to me because I made mistakes as a young man, he did the opposite and helped me to become a better man. There never was a negative moment always positive. May he rest in Heaven and God bless his family!
Clarence worked with me at DLA. It was always nice to see him in the morning and catch up with him! He was so proud of his family and spoke of them often! Most recently he was sharing his sons educational accomplishments and was just beaming with pride! I will always remember his genuine and bright smile, eagerness to learn, and overall friendship he provided not only to me but to everyone in our Division. Clarence will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, and loved ones.- especially his wife Michelle and son Philip.
