Shawn Patrick Smythe, 36, born June 5, 1980, passed November 21, 2016, surrounded by his family. Shawn was born in Delaware County, PA, and lived most of his life in Elkton, MD. He graduated from Elkton High School and worked at Bayside Community Network.

Shawn was preceded in death by his grandparents, Larry and Liz Murphy and Helen Smythe; his uncle, Gerald Smythe; and two aunts, Marianne Murphy and Susan Murphy; his first girlfriend for life, Heather Allen, whom he wanted to marry and take to Hawaii, passed in 2015. He is survived by his parents, Patrick and Patricia Smythe; his sisters, April and husband Robert, Marianne Ewing, and Colleen Smythe; one niece; six nephews; three great-nephews; many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Shawn loved Country music, WWE wrestling, and playing his WII. He always had a smile on his face and had many "girlfriends." He will be greatly missed by all that his smile touched.

Our family would like to thank Dr. Ma, Dr. S. Breslow, Dr. Gavin, Dr. Cuminski, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Ley, Brenda Mackenzie, Victoria, Seasons Hospice, and all who have taken care of Shawn.

A short service and party will be held on Sunday, December 4, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Singerly Firehall.
