Shawn Dean Biram 1969 – 2021
Shawn Dean Biram was born on December 3, 1969 in Wenatchee Washington and passed away February 21, 2021 at the age of 51. Shawn had recovered from COVID, but unknown to us, blood clots are common a month after recovery. Please, spread the word in Shawn’s memory if you have any pain, shortness of breath, anything, go to the hospital.
In his younger days he was a member of 4-H and then FFA, raising many grand champion market steers. His family has great memories of the many years attending local fairs, camping and hanging with friends.
He graduated from Eastmont High School in 1988 and began working for his family farm raising hay and cattle.
Shawn was always beside his mom and dad, keeping the water changed, cows fed, and all the other day to day work on a family farm. He liked growing up in the small community of Palisades, and the people who are like family.
Shawn enjoyed hunting deer and lived in an area that allowed him to get some pretty nice bucks. He especially enjoyed his time hunting with his neighbor Gary.
He started competing and riding, enjoying horses at a very young age. He competed in junior rodeos and his love of team roping developed. He absolutely lived to be in the arena. He had been a member of American Cowboy Team Roping Association and Appleatchee Roping Club. Shawn hardly ever missed a Friday night jackpot. Even in the hospital he was calling his mom, asking her to go and see “who is winning all the money!”
Shawn won many saddles, buckles and prizes throughout his years roping, but what he truly appreciated was that the team roping community allowed him to meet so many friends and it was where he truly enjoyed himself the most. The family thanks each and every one of them for all the texts, phone calls, and well wishes.
Shawn is survived by his mom, Jan Biram of Palisades and his sister Julie(Bud) Streeter also of Palisades and several nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his dad, Mike Biram, and his grandparents.
