McGertt was born March 28, 1967 in Claremore, Oklahoma to Charlie and Mary Ellen
(Cheek) McGertt and died at his Okmulgee home at the age of 41.
Shawn was a loving father who embraced life with a care free attitude, a
generous heart and a warm smile that could light up a room.
Shawn was also an avid sports fan, who had a big passion for the Atlanta
Braves. He also enjoyed activities
that involved his children. Shawn
was the kind of person that never met a stranger and his heart was as big as his
smile. He will be surely missed by
his friends and family. Shawn was
preceded in death by his father. He
is survived by his mother, Mary McGertt, two brothers, Bryan McGertt and wife
Jacque of Okmulgee, and Cody McGertt of Tulsa, a sister, Bonnie Jones and
