Shawn Francis Kea was the second of seven children born to John Kea, Jr and Geneva Francis Kea. Shawn was born on January 8, 1948 and transitioned on October 20, 2019.

Shawn was born and raised in Chester, Pennsylvania and attended the Chester Public Schools. Shawn spent his early years in the Lamokin Village where he learned the life-giving attributes of community and family. After brief military service in the Army, Shawn continued his education by earning numerous certificates in photography and graphic art. He worked at Scott Paper for a short period of time then began a long career in 1976 with GTE Products Corporation which later became Phillips Consumer Electronics retiring in 1996. Shawn also owned and operated North Main Day Care in Greeneville, Tennessee.

Shawn’s photographic gift to capture memories was part of his life as well. Shawn enjoyed time with family and friends. He would always greet you by saying “Peace” or “Peace and Love”. Some of his other catchy phrases were G, double O D, J O B, Good Job, Good Job; I overstand; Don’t give people the benefit of the doubt because there is no benefit in doubt. Shawn loved lively discussions and many of us prepared ourselves before starting a conversation with him. Shawn also loved to travel and vacation; his favorite destination was Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Shawn was predeceased in death by his two sons Shawn Kea, Jr. and Eugene Cottman, his parents and three brothers Dr. John T. Kea, Kevin J. Kea and Mark A. Kea.

Cherished memories will forever be remembered by his children Brian Kea, Armin Kea, Karen Scott, Duane Kea, Dawn Kea Rogers (Marcellus), Malcolm Kea, Aminah Kea, Eli Kea, and Imhotep Kea; step-children Albert Gibbs and Amber Gibbs; three sisters, Linda J. Slydell, Myra Kea-Flowers (Bernard), and Paula Kea Hollis (Martin); Aunt Frances Barber, 17 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, loving sister-in-law Alma Kea-Leonard, special friends Dinetta Kea and Catherine Elaine Kea and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
