Shaun loved going to concerts and went nearly every summer weekend. He loved to travel and wanted to see as much as he could, taking in all the beauty he could find. Knowing Shaun was an adventure.

He loved fiercely and his loyalty was never in question. He helped everyone he knew. He was always there for you whether it was a listening ear, a hand to lend, a job to be done or just to take care of you when you couldn’t. And he was so funny. Naturally funny. He worked at Leman’s in Janesville, a job and company that he really enjoyed.

Shaun is survived by his loving parents, Debra Lees and Terry Bogard (Heather Jensen), his devastated brothers, Brian (Leeann Streuly) and Tom; his best friend in the world, Hope Cody; and his goddaughter, Ash, that meant the world to him. He’s further survived by his aunts, uncles and cousins. Shaun was preceded in death by his grandparents, Andrew and Dorothy Lees, and Charles and Nadine Bogard; aunt, Nancy Petersen; uncles, Ron Shilhavy and David Petersen; and cousins, Todd Shilhavy and Kim Wilson.


Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 17, 2023, at the Maresh-Meredith & Acklam Funeral Home, followed by interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, Highway 32. Relatives and friends may meet prior to the funeral from 10-11 a.m. Memorials to one’s favorite charity have been suggested.

Please dress casually and wear your favorite team sports shirt or your favorite concert shirt. Shaun would like that.

He was so loved and so loved and so loved.
