Obituary for Shaun Adrian Cecil

Shaun passed away on Sunday, January 7, 2018 in Lawton, Oklahoma.

Shaun Adrian Cecil was born to James H. (Red) Cecil and Barbara Joseanna Morrey on April 9, 1956 in Austin, Texas. Shaun moved around when he was young due to Red’s military career, but the family finally settled down in 1971 in Granite, Oklahoma, where Shaun excelled as a baseball player and spent many summers on his grandparents farm, hauling hay. After leaving Granite he went to college in North Dakota where he eventually left and came back to southwest Oklahoma to become a Southern Baptist Pastor, and raise his family. In his down time he studied to become a paramedic, and after being certified, started a very successful career in emergency medicine. Until his health declined Shaun was the Director at Jackson County EMS, ACLS/BLS instructor, and was also an emergency room RN in Altus, Oklahoma. He loved taking care of others and training new medics, but he loved his grandkids and family more than anything else. Some of Shaun's hobbies included: bird and deer hunting, fishing, camping, reading a good book, watching the history channel, but most he loved spending time with his children and grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents James H. (Red) Cecil and Barbara Joseanna Morrey. His grandparents A.B. and Lucille Cecil.

Survivors include 1 daughter and 2 sons, Rebecca Cecil and Mark Altherr, Lawton; Julian and wife Tara of Perry, Ok; Andrew and wife Stacey of Royse City, Texas; 4 step children, Lindsey, Bradley, Lana, and Britten Spandley; a sister, Paige and husband Keith Brewer of Frankfort, IL; two brothers, Troy and wife Renee of Rockwall, TX, and Tamblyn and wife Angie of Clinton, Ok; 5 grandchildren; and many other relatives and friends.
