Shaun M Bartlett, 35, passed away Monday, May 8, 2017, in Dallas, Texas. Shaun was the son of David and MaryAnn (Budden) Bartlett of Monmouth, Maine.

He was born in Brunswick, Maine on June 20, 1981. He attended Monmouth Schools and graduated from Monmouth Academy in 1999. He attended Hardwick and Elmira Colleges.

Much of his adult life was spent in Dallas, Texas, which he loved. Shaun was extremely talented; he participated in many musical, theatrical and athletic activities. As a very young child he demonstrated creativity. He would build intricate three dimensional objects out of paper and cardboard that were incredibly realistic. Shaun played the piano and clarinet.

He was an accomplished watercolorist. Those who received paintings from Shawn cherish them. Shaun had a unique way of seeing and commenting on the world around him. He was very funny and had a keen wit.

He was blessed with many friends who have shared their love and memories of their time with him. Hearing from so many of these friends has helped ease the pain of losing him.

Shaun is survived by his parents, David and MaryAnn Bartlett of Monmouth, his sister, who he adored, Heather Ann Bartlett Adams of Scarborough and her husband Scott, his paternal grandmother, Mary L. Bartlett of Monmouth, his maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Budden of Topsham, his niece, Ann Bilodeau, U.S.Navy and nephew, Markus Bilodeau of Monmouth, also several aunts and cousins. Shaun is sadly missed by us all.

He was predeceased by his grandfathers, Gerald E. Bartlett and Robert A. Budden and aunt, Debra Bartlett Kennett.

The family is planning celebrations of Shaun’s life with both his Dallas and Maine friends. Details will be announced in the near future.
