Shane L. Lunesford, 33, of Burgaw beloved husband, daddy, son, brother, uncle and friend has left this earth too soon. Saturday, October 14, 2017 Shane went to join his parents, Billy J. and Mary Catherine Horrell Lunesford and father-in-laws, Everett Cavileer, Jr. and Dewey Rivenbark in Heaven.
Shane was born October 14, 1984 in Wilmington. He is survived by his wife of nine years, Jennifer Cavileer Lunesford; sons, Willie Everett Lunesford and Caleb Walker Lunesford; brother, JJ Lunesford (Tangela); sisters, Tonya Lunesford, Tammy Hurlburt (Larry), Connie Kenney (Donnie), Donna Kenney, and Jan Shepard; mother-in-law, Patricia Rivenbark; grandmother-in-law, Anna Eubanks; two brother-in-laws, and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all who loved Shane dearly.
Shane was a beautiful light who cast a beacon of love, laughter, and genuine kindness to all who crossed his path. Shane never met a stranger and was quick to offer his smile, words of encouragement, or the shirt from his back. Once he met you, you were forever in his heart and he in yours. His greatest gift was the love and joy he brought others. Above all else Shane loved his family.
Visitation with the family will be 6 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Burgaw.
Funeral service will be 11:00 a.m. on Friday at Jordans Chapel United Methodist Church with The Reverend Bill Appelwhite and The Reverend William Hill Pearsall officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Jennifer, you and your family (those beautiful boys) are in our thoughts and prayers. I am so glad I had the chance to meet Shane and talk to him on Saturday night. He was a wonderful person that you feel like you knew forever. Take comfort in knowing that you all will be together again in Paradise with Jesus and all that have gone before.
May God give you the strength you need at this time.
Joseph, Terry, Jonathan and Patrick Watkins

Im deeply saddened to loose such a long time sweet and caring friend. It seems just like yesterday we were playing tag at the skating rink then poof life happened and we grew up. The proud moment and big smile Shane shared when he told me he was getting married was over the time. I'm going to miss running into that smile but you will forever be in my thoughts. RIP SHANE
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family for strength at this difficult time. I wish everyone family peace and well being. If anyone needs anything please let me know.
