Shane Anthony Leone
Shane Anthony Leone passed away February 2, 2010 at his sister’s home in Leesburg, VA after a brief battle with cancer. Although he lost this battle throughout his life Shane fought hard to overcome many setbacks caused from a kidney disease that struck when he was just a toddler. Besides spending time with loved ones Shane’s passions included computers, comic book heroes (his favorite was Spiderman), and pool. He was an avid golfer. He spent most of his high school days learning and playing golf which included a trip to the state championship. He was lucky enough to meet his golf hero, Jack Nicklaus this past year. Shane was fun loving, smart, hard working, thoughtful, out going, charming, and most of all courageous. Shane had a smile that touched and brightened anyone that knew him. He was a one of a kind, special human being that above all loved his family and friends.
