October 23, 1966 - September 13, 2021
Shawn Paul Skaggs, 54, of Katy, TX went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 13, 2021. He was born October 23, 1966 in Riverside, California to Truman and Paula Flanagan Skaggs. Shawn spent the majority of his childhood in Northwest Arkansas. He graduated in 1985 from Springdale High School, where he acquired his love for band and his desire to pursue a career in Music Education. He graduated from Arkansas Tech University, Russellville, AR in 1990 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and went on to receive a Masters Degree in Music Education in 1998 from Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, LA. Throughout his career, he shared his love for band with students in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. While working as the band director in Mildred ISD, Shawn began attending the Northwood church of Christ. It was at this time in life when he made the most important decision to become a Christian, and he was baptized. His faith remained strong until the Lord called him home. Shawn met Christina in 2006, and they married on December 21, 2007. Not only did he choose to love and share his life with her, he was a wonderful, dedicated, and present father to Laura. 2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Herman and Golda Sparks Skaggs; maternal grandparents Paul and Eva Roberts Flanagan; and his father-in-law Larry Heathcote.
