To know Rhyon was to love Rhyon, and there aren't enough words to truly capture the essence of this beloved soul. Rhyon held many hats and titles; son, father, brother, friend. He was fiercely loyal and always up for a night of fun that turned into an epic story to be told. Rhyon knew how to command a room like no other, was quick with wit, and was one to make you laugh when it mattered the most.
He was a father before anything else and loved his children with all of his heart. He loved hunting, especially for deer. He loved his Chicago Bears and everyone that knew him knew it. He was an Iron Worker out of Locol 395 for 15 years and he enjoyed working as he loved what he did. Rhyon was all around a wonderful human being which is why he will be missed by so many.
We love you Shawn Rhyon Pewitt and we will always miss you!
