Brattleboro - Shane David Wetherby passed away Tuesday, January 23, 2018 after a long battle with addiction.
Born on August 3, 1975 at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital in Brattleboro, Vermont, Shane attended Brattleboro Union High School.
Shane worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers and Sams Outdoor Outfitters, where he was known as a reliable employee with an incredible work ethic.
Those who knew the real Shane, and not just the version of him seen through the lens of addictions, knew him to be a bright, funny, creative, generous and loving person with an amazing smile and a mischievous twinkle in his blue eyes. Shane wanted more than anything to be a good dad to his son Lukas; to be someone he could look up to and be proud of, and even as he struggled, spending time with Lukas was a priority for Shane and something he looked forward to.
Shane is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Wetherby, and is survived by his father, Arnold Wetherby; son Lukas Bullock; sister Rhonda Wetherby (Mikal); niece Avery Wetherby Altomare; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.
Shane is now at peace. He is and will continue to be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Graveside committal services will be conducted Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 11:00 A.M. in North Cemetery in Vernon. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a fund that has been created for Shane’s son, Lukas: https://www.gofundme.com/shanesgift.
