Mikee 20 years ago today you left us. Not a day goes by that we dont think of you. You are missed. Your humor, kindness, and professionalism. You were amazing.


March 7, 2023

Mikee, you were my best friend! it has taken me a long time to visit this page. You were my dispatch partner. You always had my back! I have so many memories of the goofy things that happened over the years. It was truly a pleasure to be your friend. You were such a kind person. I often wonder what kind of trouble you would be instigating now! or would you have children that we could corrupt? or where your law enforcement career would have taken you? Still miss you today and will never forget. Rest Easy and keep watching over all of us in this profession.

I was a friend of 'Mikey". He truly was the kind of person that brightened everybody's day. He always had a quick smile and a positive word. I am sure he would have had a beautiful family, if he hadn't been robbed of the lifespan he deserved.

Hey Mike,
Every few days I look at ODMP and knew that soon I would be seeing your memorial. As we all remember when a loved one is taken from us there are times when we question the reasons and never realize the answers. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten by your family, friends, and the law enforcement community that knew you as well as those who didn't (like me) but respect you for your service and sacrifice. Know that you will never be forgotten.

After spending 28 years with the Adams Co. Sheriff's dept and being involved and watching other officers having so many close calls, I thought I had escaped it all after retiring in 2002. I had already known the pain of losing friends and loved ones, especially after spending two years in Vietnam. I was not prepared to hear the news of your passing. Our loss of you was especially tragic as you were so young, full of life, and a kind and gentle spirit. I wish I had been there to protect you!!!
Your brotherhood and my brothers in Vietnam share the same good intentions. We "Sheep Dogs" attempt to protect the herd of sheep, are only wanted when the Wolf is around. Few will remember yet those of the few that do, I take pride to be a part of them. I/We will never forget.
Some say that heaven is a place where all your dogs wait for you. I believe that as well as all those heroes that went before us. I pray that I see you all one day.

On August 24, 2012, Adams County dedicated a memorial for Officer Shannon. This revived his memory and renewed the loss that his family and friends have felt. But what a joy to know that he is also remembered in this way. May God comfort you and sustain his memory.

You were an amazing person and even better friend. Theres so much I never got to tell you and so much I confided in you. I feel cheated that you were taken from us so young, everyone misses you terrible. I still have all your goofy cards you randomly sent me and stuff you brought me back from mall of america. You were truely one in a million. Not a day goes by that you dont cross my mind. Thank you for the time I was blessed to have you as a friend. I miss you more then words can express. All the inside jokes and phone tag :) See you in Heaven my friend! Love u!
