Shawn Weera, age 55, of Caledonia, MI, beloved husband, son, brother, and uncle, entered his Heavenly Home unexpectedly on Friday, June 15, 2018 due to complications after a heart attack. He was born Channa Weerasooriya on April 6, 1963, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, to  Sugath and Amitha Jayasekera Weerasooriya. He graduated from Royal College in Colombo, Sri Lanka; California State University - Los Angeles; and Thomas Cooley Law School in Lansing, MI. Shawn practiced as an elder law and estate planning attorney in West Michigan for nearly 20 years, helping hundreds of families, including many war-time veterans. He was an intelligent, kindhearted, generous, and hard working man with a great sense of humor. He dearly loved his family, friends, and clients. Shawn's work was his life. He kept his entrepreneurial spirit throughout his life, and he possessed a very special ability to connect with and care for the elderly and disabled. Shawn will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 25 years, Shelly A. Alman, of Caledonia; his parents, Sugath and Amitha Jayasekera Weerasooriya, of Colombo, Sri Lanka; his twin brother and sister-in-law, Chanaka (Chuck) and Dulcie R. Weerasooriya, of Chatsworth, CA; his younger brother and sister-in-law, Sanjo and Krysta Weerasooriya, of Mulgrave, Victoria, Australia; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jack B. and Janet M. Alman, of Caledonia; his sister-in-law, Sheri L. Alman, of Caledonia; one special nephew, Evan J. Weerasooriya; three special nieces, Tessa Weerasooriya, Kayla A. Weerasooriya, and Taylor C. Alman; and law partner, Gregory A. Hodge, JD. Relatives and friends may meet the family on Tuesday, June 19, from 2 - 4 and 6 - 8 pm at Stroo Funeral Home or on Wednesday morning, June 20, from 10 - 10:45 am at Peace Church.
