Shane Farley Fors

June 18, 1985 - July 28, 2017

FORS, Shane Farley, age 32, entered into eternal peace on Friday, July 28th at his childhood home in Coon Rapids, Minnesota surrounded by his family.

Shane is remembered by all who knew him for his colorful, kind, and humble character. A lover of learning, Shane is an alumni of Sunrise Montessori, L.O. Jacob, Coon Rapids Middle School, Coon Rapids High School, and the University of Minnesota where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Mortuary Science. Shane eventually sought a career in nursing, as he found a true calling in hospice care (even he found this humorous). His compassion for others never ended. Despite his diagnosis with terminal brain cancer in the spring of 2009, Shane took it upon himself to volunteer at Mercy Hospital, where he assisted others. From summers spent on the north shore of Lake Superior, to exploring his favorite art museums in the Twin Cities, Shane has left behind a mark of true kindness and compassion. Shane is survived by his mother, Catherine; father, Joel; sister, Amber; brother-in-law, William; and his close friends and family.
