Obituary for Shawn C. Fontaine

Shawn Fontaine’s adventure began on June 28, 1962 and ended on March 21, 2019.
He died of natural causes at the age of 56.

Shawn was born to the late James Andrew Fontaine, Sr. and the late Wilhelmina Pettiford in Montclair, New Jersey. Shawn was the beloved younger brother of James “Jimmy” Fontaine Jr. He attended schooling based in Newark, New Jersey. He later moved to the Middlesex County area and was most recently a resident of South River.

Shawn’s career as a truck driver for multiple companies made him numerous friends along the way. Shawn loved to take his daughter Aliyyah to work with him whenever possible. For pleasure he enjoyed going to matinee movies with his friends and family. He also very much loved to eat at many different small restaurants and called them “hidden treasures.” He was a devoted sports fan and never gave up on The New York Giants.

Shawn had fond memories of summers in Wildwood with his family and their annual outings to the Middlesex County Fair. He was also a big fan of Marvel, D.C, and The Twilight Zone. Shawn was very good at staying calm and dealing with difficulties as they arose. Shawn had recently celebrated 22 years of clean time. He belonged to a 12 step fellowship and was beloved by many of his fellow members, always doing his best to help others.

Shawn leaves to cherish his memory: his older brother James Fontaine Jr.; his beloved daughter Aliyyah Marie Fontaine, 15; his daughter’s mother Lisa Hall; his stepmother Jean Golden Fontaine; step brother Freddie Caper, and wife Klinda, of NJ; step brothers Derrick Caper of MA and Robin Caper of FL; Rhonda Peters of NJ, and Great Aunt Earlene Jones, of Irvington NJ. He is predeceased by his stepbrother, Lloyd Caper. He also leaves behind a host of cousins, nephews, and nieces.
