Shawn Lee Rawls, of Vancleave, a dedicated construction worker, passed away suddenly on January 16, 2024, in Ocean Springs, MS. Age 30.  He was born on June 11, 1993, in Alabama. Shawn was a beloved son, brother, nephew, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Shawn had a passion for his career in construction. He exhibited immense skill and dedication in his work and was admired by his colleagues for his hard work and attention to detail. Through his profession, he left a lasting impact on the community he served.

His melodic tunes were captivating and reflected his depth of emotions. Additionally, he possessed artistic flair as a talented tattoo artist. He had a unique ability to transform ideas into beautiful works of art that became cherished memories for those who sought his craft.
