Dwight “Ike” D. Shannon, 66, died of cancer on September 13, 2019 in Sacramento, California. He was born in Erie, Pennsylvania on March 6, 1953 at Hamot Hospital.
Ike graduated McDowell High, served his country in the U.S. Army, worked for General Electric, and was a long time Alcoholics Anonymous member. An avid world traveler, he visited South Korea, the Holy Lands and New York City; lived in Sarasota, Florida; Indianola, Iowa; and Bisbee, Arizona before settling in Sacramento to be closer to family. However, Erie will forever be his home, and he loved nothing more in life than cruising Presque Isle with his best dog Truman.
Mr. Shannon is survived by two children, Dawn Yaple and Daniel Shannon, of Sacramento, his two sisters Ruth Lindey, or Sacramento, and Betty Mattocks, of Conneaut Lake, PA, and his former wife Kathryn Felton of Erie.
