Shawn was born November 29, 1974 to Mary Davis Terwilliger and the late Philip C. Terwilliger and his brother, Theodore “Ted” Terwilliger.

Shawn worked hard his whole life and loved Twig’s Excavating and working with his father who enjoyed showing him the tricks of the trade and telling him how to do things the “right” way. He graduated from Ithaca High School and earned a degree in autobody repair.  He was always proud of his accomplishments and would speak his mind. He was known by many and loved by most. He will truly be missed and loved forever in our hearts.
