Shane was the beloved son of Melodie Hummer Frazin and Kevin Ivan Bird. He was born July 11, 1988, in Elkhart.
Shane honorably served his country in the U.S. Navy as a nuclear engineer. Shane was a lifetime learner and loved reading. He enjoyed traveling to many places through his books and his adventures. He once vacationed to Israel traveling the Holy Land, where one might say he overstayed his visa, in searching for his Lord and Savior. He had a love for sustainable civilization. Shane loved to bring people together. He was known as the glue that held his family and his friends together. He will be sadly missed.
Shane is survived by his parents, Justin and Melodie Frazin; his siblings, Brandy (Mike) Bird Ivens, Amanda Bird Krull of Arkansas, Benjamin Buelna, Jasmine Buelna, Tessa Buelna Clay, Kelsey (Clayton) Frazin Moss, John (Shawna) Spellins and Katie Frazin; his grandmothers, Lena Mae Bird and Rosie Hummer; his great-grandfather, Roger Birdsell; and his nieces and nephews, Nia, Liam, Kaylee, Michael, Eva, Aria, Andrea, Aubrey and Kevin.
