Shawn Helquist, 39, of Phoenix, Arizona, passed Sunday, October 19th. He was born to Charles Helquist Sr. and Carol Hatch, September 14, 1975, in Mesa, AZ. Shawn was a kindhearted person who could brighten a room with his smile and charm. He loved to read. In fact, he took a book with him everywhere he went so that he could read any chance he got. In the winter, you could find him on the top of his favorite mountain, ready to snowboard down. He was friendly to everyone. He especially loved his dog Scout, who was his best friend. He is survived by his parents, and siblings: Charles Helquist, Melissa Mullins, Keith Helquist, Jamie (Nick) Babin, Greg Lords, and Shaney (Christian) Price. Visitation will be held Tuesday October 28 from 6-9pm at Bunkers Garden Chapel, 33 N. Centennial Way in Mesa.
