Shane Coker Stikeleather, 55, of Clayton, Georgia passed away on February 9, 2019.
Shane was born June 24, 1963, in Arcadia, Florida, the son of Sonja Ann Coker
Stikeleather and the late Lovick Haldon Stikeleather. Throughout his life, Shane had
various hobbies that he loved and mastered including cycling, golfing, sea kayaking,
riding motorcycles, playing guitar, and watching football. He was a visionary and
innovator during his career as a building contractor and land developer. When he had a
goal, he pursued it endlessly and with passion. He had a keen wit to match his lyrical,
infectious laugh. He had a fervent faith in and a genuine, personal relationship with God.
He felt God’s love and peace most when in the outdoors doing the things he loved in the
sunshine and especially at the beach. He was a devoted son and brother, and most of all
he was a loving and caring father and grandfather.
Shane is survived by his mother, Sonja Stikeleather, of Clayton, Ga.; two daughters,
Rachel Stikeleather Briones of Tiger, Ga., Julia Stikeleather Bearden of Dillard, Ga.; two
sisters, Carrie Summerlin Tatro (George) of Atlanta, Ga., Laurel Erin Ramey (Michael)
of Franklin, NC; two grandchildren, Maia Dawne Bearden, Landon Charles Briones; one
niece, Cheyenne Brantley; two nephews, Justin Colbert, Jared Colbert.
