Shawn Braaten was one of those people that you meet once in a lifetime.
He was a devoted man of Faith and loving husband. Shawn and his wife, Andrea Braaten, have been married for 33 years and together for almost 36 years. Their love story was the kind that you read about in the mushy romance novels and you see in the cheesy rom coms. The love they shared is what every couple should strive for.
Shawn and Andrea raised three hardworking, Jesus loving, kind sons. They instilled the best of both of them when raising their boys and it shows now that all three have grown into successful men. Their eldest son and his wife of 4 years are expecting their first child in March.
