Obituary for Shain A. Stillwell

Shain A. Stillwell, age 35 of Peoria, passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2017 at his home. Shain was born on June 17, 1982 in Normal, IL to Reece A. Stillwell and Linda L. (Cline) Wheat. Surviving are his daughters, Clover Lee Stillwell (8yrs) and Amaryllis Stillwell (3yrs); his mother, Linda Wheat of Congerville, IL; his brother, Levi (Megan Roeder) Wheat; his father, Reece Stillwell; and his grandparents, Richard and Pat Cline. He was preceded in death by his aunt, Connie Miller. Shain's love of cooking and grilling was evident in his work at Hickory River Smokehouse in Peoria, where he was a manager, and at family gatherings, where he was "The Grillmaster." Shain was a loving father to his daughters and spent lots of time doing fun activities with them. He loved music and some of his favorite artists to listen to were, Shinedown, Pentatonix, and anything Chris Cornell. Shain also enjoyed nature and spending time out in the country. He was an avid Chicago Bears and Cubs fan and even attended the Cubs victory parade. His hobbies included collecting Transformers, The Walking Dead memorabilia, and musical instruments, especially drums and guitars. Known for his handiness, he could fix almost anything or at least try. He had strong views on politics and stood up for what he believed in. He loved animals and had two dogs, Pepper and Basil, as well as two cats, Ginger and Cinnamon. Shain was a warm, loyal person and a real jokester. He will be missed by all he crossed paths with. Cremation rites will be accorded and a memorial visitation will be held on Thursday, July 6, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at The Wilton Mortuary in Peoria. Memorials may be made to the family in order to set up college funds for Shain's daughters.
