He pursued this career for over forty years in such places as Wichita, Tulsa, Corpus Christi, Ft.

Shawn was preceded in death by his father, John C. North and mother, Glenna J. Smith. He is survived by his brother Michael (Becky) North of Wichita, Kansas, sister Terry North of Austin, Texas, and seven nephews and nieces.

Shawn will be interred near family members in Wagoner, Oklahoma. Plans for any future ceremony are currently

uncertain. In lieu of flowers or contributions, Shawn's family suggests you go to your favorite tavern, order your preferred beverage, and raise a glass. That is probably what he is doing right now. GLICKLER FUNERAL HOME handling arrangements.
