Shawn Keitfi Stokes was born May 25, 1967 to Kharon Stkes and the late Edison "Bean" Williams Jr. With extreme sadness we announce the passing of Shawn at his Ewing home on Monday, January 22, 2023 at the age of 56.
Shawn jokingly called "Bear" received his education within the Trenton Public School System. After graduation from TCHS he started working at Wells Fargo. Upon leaving Wells Fargo he worked for the NJ State Police. Because of his open friendly manner, he was remembered fondly by those he met while performing his duties at various government buildings in New Jersey.
He enjoyed traveling, telling jokes and enjoying life with family and friends.
Shawn's memory will live on in those he leaves behind, his mother Kharon Stokes; his beloved sister Tonia (Stephen) Gass; along with cherished niece Bryelle and Cimone Gass; his aunts Frances Crosswhite, Sharon Stokes and Oralee Williams; a host of cousins and a multitude of younger cousins that referred to him as Uncle Shawn; a large group of friends and acquaintances along with a very special friend Ms. Vanessa White.
Funeral service will be 12pm Thursday, February 1, 2024 at New Life Christian Center, 812 Prospect St, Trenton, NJ 08618. Calling hours will be 10am until the time of service. Interment will be at Fountain Lawn Memorial Park, Ewing, NJ.
