Shane P. Abel
Former Maryville resident s Shane P. Abel, 60, was found dead from
natural causes March 5, 2017, in his apartment in Kansas City, Missouri.
Born November 1, 1956, in Phoenix, Arizona, he was the son of Preston and Lucille Raynor Abel. An only child, he was raised by his mother in Maysville, Missouri, living with relatives in Maryville during his later teens. He was a 1974 Maryville R-II High School graduate, writing for the student newspaper as ‘’Mosquito’’.
He served in the U.S. Navy stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, and on the USS Iwo Jima in the Mediterranean Sea. After attending Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, he worked as a paralegal for a small firm in New Paltz, New York. He resided in the Kansas City metro area for most of the past 30 years.
Friends will remember Shane for his impish grin, razor sharp wit and maniacal laugh; his artful use of language and encyclopedic knowledge of the Beatles.
He is survived by cousins and distant relatives.
Memorial Graveside Services will be 1:00 p.m. Monday, December 11, 2017 at Fairport Cemetery with full Military Honors by the United States Navy. Services under direction of Turner Family Funeral Home of Maysville. Memorial Contributions: www.turnerfamilyfuneral.com
