Final Voyage
Shawn Caldwell
May 25, 1972 - July 29, 2011

To all hands

I can’t begin to tell you how difficult it is for me to share this very sad news with our extended Perry family. For those of you that have walked the walk, you know there is no greater pain than the loss of your child. While we never get over our loss, we do learn to live with our grief by recalling all the fond memories that can never be taken from us.

Our dearest shipmate and extended Perry family members Steve & Jody Caldwell have lost their wonderful 38 year old son Shawn Caldwell on July 29, 2011 in Peyton, Colorado. He will be missed by all who knew him, but especially by his wife Jennifer and daughter Katelyn.
