    Ted L. Shannon, 65, passed away Dec. 28, 2008 in Grand Junction, Colo., of cancer.

    Ted was born on Dec. 24, 1943 in Price, Utah. His family moved to Moab in the early 1950s to follow the uranium boom. Harry and Enola Ellis raised him and following high school Ted was drafted and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1967.

    Following his time of service he met and married Jacquelin Kay Heieren on Feb. 24, 1968 in Auburn, Washington. They lived in the Seattle area and later in Ferndale, WA., where he worked as a carpenter. Jacquelin passed away in 1977 of cancer, and in 1980 the family moved to Moab, where Ted continued to work as a handyman and later started doing upholstery work.

    Ted is survived by his two sons, Todd L. Shannon of Moab and Justin M. Shannon of Portland, Oregon; four brothers, Tommy Shannon, Gary (Valerie) Grundvig, Dean (Vicki) Ellis, Virgil (Brenda) Ellis; and one sister, Nancy (Lloyd) Thayn.

    His wife, Jacquelin, his parents, Harry and Enola Ellen Ellis, and his sister, Martha Ann Ellis preceded him in death.

    A funeral service will be held Wednesday Dec. 31, 2008 at 1 p.m. at the Spanish Valley Mortuary Chapel, with a viewing starting at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery, with military rites being accorded by the American Legion Post No. 54.

    The family would request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the family to help with funeral expenses.
