Shaun was born on Sept. 5, 1977, in Erie County, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Corry Area High School in Corry in 1995. Shaun moved to Wilmington, N.C., shortly after graduating from high school.

He was an avid motorcycle rider and enjoyed going out for a ride any chance he was given. Shaun was also passionate for the competitive game of billiards.

Shaun is survived by his loving wife, Dawn; his mother, Frances Murdock; his brothers, Darek Murdock and Darrin Murdock; stepmother, Patricia Murdock; several nieces and nephews; and by his loving German shepherds, Troy and Daphne.
