A native and lifelong resident of Aiken, Shane was a son of Keith and Shari Wintrow Smith. He was a 2010 graduate of South Aiken High School where he was a member of NJROTC. He received a certification in welding from Aiken Technical College.  Shane was a member of Sheet Metal Union Local 399 and was employed by SRNS at the Savannah River Site.  He was a beloved usher at Cedar Creek Church. Shane was loved immeasurably by God, his family and countless other people. He was a loving son and brother.

He was a brilliant and intellectual thinker who loved welding, art, and gaming where he had many friends in the online community.

Shane’s faith in God was evident to those who were touched by his gentle and kind soul. His unique sincerity and innate sense of integrity inspired trust and comfort to his friends and family. He deeply and genuinely cared for those around him and never hesitated to help those in need.  

Shane’s greatest God-given gift was his ability to deeply love and sacrifice for those close to him.

His smile and laugh will live in our hearts forever.
