CHICAGO Shane Michael Stokowski, 33, of Chicago, formerly of Peoria, passed away at 5:18 p.m. Saturday, March 22, 2014, at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital, Chicago.
Shane was born May 16, 1980, in Peoria to Jeff and Christine (Needham) Stokowski. They survive.
He is also survived by one brother, Patrick of Peoria; one sister, Sheila of Peoria; his grandmother, Virginia Stokowski of Peoria; fiance, Erin Harvill of Chicago; and several aunts and uncles and numerous cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John Stokowski and Joseph and Sheila Needham; his uncle, John Stokowski; and his cousin, Kelly Needham.
Shane received a bachelor degree in graphic design from Eastern Illinois University. He later worked as an animator/ illustrator for EMMI Solutions.
He enjoyed biking, playing guitar, traveling, basketball, and dancing. He was the light of our lives, and did not know a stranger. He is probably having a dance-off in heaven.
