Shawn Day

January 29, 1989 — June 6, 2020

Shawn E. Day, 31, passed away on June 6, 2020 in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Shawn was born on January 29, 1989 to Bob and Shelia Day in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1991, his family moved to Pocatello where he attended Ellis Elementary, Alameda Middle, and graduated from Highland High School. Shawn fell in love with sports at a young age. He played baseball and football for city leagues. During his younger years he enjoyed skateboarding, 3-wheeling and dirt biking.

Presently Shawn was very passionate about fitness and personal health. He has been a member of Gold's Gym in Pocatello since his early twenties. He basically could have lived at the gym. He also loved riding motorcycles and was hoping to get another one soon. Shawn was also currently taking classes in Idaho Falls and enrolled in an electrician apprenticeship. Shawn was also active in his community. He was currently a member of Soldiers of Hope and designed their current logo. Alongside Soldiers of Hope, his love of fitness and nutrition drove him to work on developing a healthy living program to help those struggling with substance abuse.

Among his many activities and interests, Shawn's Christian faith was very important to him. He enjoyed attending Watersprings Church in Idaho Falls and worked closely with Pastor Ty as he continued to explore and learn in his spirituality.

Above all else, Shawn enjoyed being with his friends and family. He was a social butterfly. In particular, the joy of his life was watching his son live his life. Shawn loved watching his son play sports.
