Shawn Everett Juhnke, 51, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Livingston, Montana, on April 30, 2022.
Shawn was the loving son born to Gail and David Juhnke on August 17, 1970, in Livingston. He graduated in 1990 after going back to school to get his GED. He worked for the BNSF in Alliance, NE, while married to Penny Thomsen. They were blessed with two children, Christian and Caitlin, and later divorced. While still in Alliance, Shawn married Christine Hoppes. They later moved to Montana where he worked for the mine and later became a police officer in Columbus, MT. Shawn and Christine were blessed with two children, Saige and Kelsey Juhnke, and later divorced.
Shawn really enjoyed being a police officer, followed by becoming a corrections officer in Miles City, MT. Following an on the job injury, he moved to Livingston to be closer to family. His passions were his guns, his love for his country, his tattoos - each and every one symbolizing the man he was and had become - his Lord and Savior, and his family. Family meant the world to him and he would never go a day without saying, “I love you”. Shawn…We Love You!
Shawn is survived by his four children; his parents; sister, Rachel (Tim) Dailey; brother, Brandon (Nicole) Juhnke; half-sisters, Tammy (Gustavo) Herrera, and Christina (Jake) Nelson; half-brothers Bryan (Tracy) Meloccara, Josh (Carrie) McGee and John (Linnea) McGee; 4 grandchildren; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins that meant the world to him.
