Dec 1, 2014

Our friend, Shawn Walb, passed away on November 28, 2014 after a courageous 3-year battle with cancer.

Shawn wasn’t just the Building Engineer we relied on for over 25 years to keep MGA’s office at The Madison maintenance-free; he was also a true friend.   Shawn entertained us with his many stories from his travels and his passion for his skating and music.   His kindness to others is well-known, and it extended not only to people but also to wildlife.   Shawn continually kept us posted on the activities of The Madison’s rooftop tenants – the Peregrine falcons. His compassion for these creatures was so complete that Shawn would check on the birds and their offspring, and then report his findings to the officer at the Game Commission.

His death is a loss to all who knew him and we offer our sincerest condolences to Shawn’s wife, mother, siblings, family and friends .   He will be greatly missed.
