Shawn E. Kienholz, 27

Shawn Edward Kienholz, age 27, of Delano, was tragically taken from us Thursday, May 28, 2015.

Shawn was a new husband, married May 1, 2015; a loving father of Kolten, age 5; and a loyal son, brother, and friend. His energy and passion for life, along with his boisterous, laughing spirit will be dearly missed.

Shawn leaves behind his wife, Lacy Kienholz; his best friend – best man – and only son, Kolten Kienholz; his mother, Phyllis Kienholz; father Edward Kienholz (Daneille Dalbec); sister Christy (Skylar) Rekstad; his brother, Kyle Kienholz; nieces and nephews, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and many dear friends.

Funeral services took place Wednesday, June 3 at 1 p.m. at Light of Christ Church in Delano, with a gathering of family and friends 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church.

The family has set up a fund in honor of Shawn to help his wife and son with current and future expenses, and requests that anyone wanting to help, would donate to his memorial fund in lieu of sending flowers or any other gifts. His memorial fund can be found on Facebook under “Shawn Kienholz Memorial Fund” or on GoFundMe.com at http://www.gofundme.com/ShawnKienholz.
