April 11, 1984 - February 1, 2018
Shaun Alfred McCabe, 33, passed away on Thursday, February 1, 2018, at UC Health University of Colorado Hospital after a life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Shaun was born on April 11, 1984, in Norfolk, to Mark and Frances (LaCroix) McCabe. He was a member of the 2002 graduating class of Norfolk High School and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in from Wayne State College in 2006.
On March 9, 2015, Shaun became the first recipient of a double lung and liver transplant in the state of Colorado at UC Health. This milestone procedure presented Shaun with a new outlook on life and gave his family and friends three more years to enjoy his presence. His family is eternally grateful for the sacrifices made to prolong his life and the resolve of the transplant team at UC Health.
Shaun's passion in life was music. He was the lead singer & keyboardist in the band, Bone Camaro, in college, a music director at KWSC 91.1 FM and active in the Lincoln & Omaha music scene during his life.
He is survived by both of his parents, Mark McCabe of Pierce, and Frances McCabe of Lincoln, stepmother, Lynn Weinrich of Pierce, his older sisters, Erin and Janette McCabe, both of Lincoln, his older brother, Patrick McCabe of Lincoln, and half brother, Nathan McCabe of Omaha.
Shaun was a selfless soul with a vivid imagination and a singular sense of humor. He was magnetic and proved that perseverance is a virtue during his life. With that in mind, His family would ask that you make a donation to either the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Nebraska or the Children's Organ Transplant Association in his name in lieu of flowers.
Shaun was cremated at A Better Place Funeral and Cremation in Denver. Rosary: 6 p.m. Friday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 1420 K Street. Mass of Christian Burial: 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Mary's Catholic Church. Condolences can be left at bmlfh.com
