Shane Matthew Estes, 40


Mr. Shane Matthew Estes, 40, of Swainsboro, passed away Thursday, September 7, 2023. Memorial service was held Sunday, September 10, at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of Chapman Funeral Home with Pastor Erin Beach. Masonic rights were observed at the service. Visitation was held one hour prior to service.

Mr. Estes was born October 27, 1982, in Modesto, California, (and he was awfully proud of that) to Carolyn Marie Spyres Estes and the late Ronald Wayne Estes. He was an engineer with Union 474 as a crane operator. No one could cut his grass but him, and he enjoyed his time playing PlayStation5 with his Australian friends. Shane loved life, joking and cutting up. And by the way…no one touched his truck! Most loved by him was Jesus first, Amy second, and Sara, Nate, and Jonah. Mr. Estes is preceded in death by his father; and brother, Brian Estes.

Mr. Estes is survived by his wife, Amy Elizabeth Estes; children, Sara Paige Estes, Nathan Ross “Nate” Estes, and Jonah Abraham Estes; mother, Carolyn Marie Spyres Estes; brother, Brent Eugene Estes; sister-in-law, Erin (Kyle) White Beach, but in his heart, she was always his sister; nieces and nephews, Courtney Estes, Brice Estes, Grace Beach, and Magnolia Jo Beach.

Chapman Funeral Home of Swainsboro was in charge of arrangements.
