Remembering Donald Shannon

The VIAS family mourns the passing one of the company’s longest tenured and dedicated employees, Donald Shannon. Donald passed away on Sunday evening, April 28th from cardiac arrest. He was way too young, only 60 years of age. Donald has joined Vias in 1994 and he was always a committed, passionate member of the National Sales team. He survived many leadership changes, a fair amount of distributor changes in his market, and was always at the ready to provide his support, expertise, and dedicated service to whatever cause was needed. We grieve along with his two sisters, Mary, and Moira, his girlfriend of many years, Jane, as well as all of his close friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. We will always remember his laugh, his infectious wit, his brilliance, his kindness, and his race walking style of getting from one place to another (I could never keep up with him!). In this industry of always trying to tackle the next challenge, meet the next sales goal, handle the current emergency, it is important to take a step back and remember the people who we work with, who we spend a considerable amount of time with, and with whom we share this journey. Please take some moments to remember Donald. God bless.
