Shawn J. Decker, 43, of Hamden, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 3, 2017 at Connecticut Hospice in Branford with his loving and devoted wife Stephanie (Russell) Decker by his side.

Shawn was born in New Haven on Nov. 26, 1973, the son of William and Anna Jean (Cerino) Decker. He is the brother of Scott Decker (Wayne Bennett) and the nephew of Janet Cerino and Lucille Tuttle (Raymond). 

Shawn is the son-in-law of Frank and Claudette Russell, the brother-in-law of Nate Russell (Johanna Bernstein) and uncle to his little niece Natasha Bernstein.

Shawn studied at Southern Connecticut State University. He loved going to New York City with his wife and trying the best restaurants but always had a special place in his heart for pizza.  Shawn was an avid New York Yankees fan, enjoyed his hobby of restoring classic arcade games and loved dogs, especially his chihuahuas, Minnie and Penny.

Family and friends may call at the North Haven Funeral Home, 36 Washington Ave., on Saturday from 11 a.m. until the time of “A Celebration of Shawn’s Life” at 1 p.m.  Interment will be private and at the convenience of the family.
