Shane Zachary Pennell, 29, of Milford DE tragically passed away on Saturday, June 17, 2023. He was born on April 24, 1994, in Lewes Delaware to Melissa (Pennell) Holochwost of Frederica, DE, and Eric Mangle of Warren, Ohio.
Shane attended Milford High School later becoming an Electrical lineman for ULCS and recently started his own business Wild Man Firewood. He was very enthusiastic about growing his own business.
Shane was the oldest of five boys and enjoyed being an older brother, going to sporting events and cheering his brothers on. He was a proud father of two beautiful girls, who were light in his life. Being a father was a complete joy to him. Shane loved playing the guitar and singing. He loved being the life of the party and loved to talk. Everyone who knew him loved him. He would come running with granny or when his mom called. He was always checking on those he loved. As a child, Shane started climbing trees as soon as he could walk. He was a good athlete and enjoyed lifting weights. He was an outdoors kind of guy and was most happy when he was outside working, riding his motorcycles, or just hanging around a bonfire with his friends and family.
