Shane M. Coffield

October 12, 2020

Shane Michael Coffield, 29, born May 11, 1991, will forever be remembered by his family and friends. He is the son of Michael Coffield and Linda Brill-Hubbard (Brad Hubbard), a brother to Ashley Stoll, an uncle to Maddi Coffield, Leo and Oliver Stoll, and a niece on the way. He is a grandson to Meredith Joy Brill, a nephew and cousin to many loving aunts, uncles and cousins, a Child of God, and a friend to many.

If you were genuine, unique, loved music, the outdoors, campfires, kayaking, and good food and drink, you were a friend of Shane’s. Shane’s biggest joy - in the midst of many struggles - was sharing his passion for his loving Savior Jesus and Father God with others. He brought many to know our loving Savior.  He was a resident of Eau Claire but loved traveling anywhere and everywhere.

Shane was playing the guitar, one of his greatest passions, when he collapsed and just hours later passed away. He was called home to be with Jesus on Monday, 1:03 pm October 12 at Mayo Hospital/ Critical Care in Eau Claire.

Shane was one of the smartest people his family and many others knew. He loved to read and to learn, but for the life of him he couldn’t sit in a classroom. Shane loved building things, working with his hands, playing his many instruments, reading spiritual books by authors such as John Crowder, gardening and traveling. He loved jamming with his friends, busking downtown, bicycling, animals, cooking and experimenting with making new varieties of teas. If he ever had a question about anything, he would research the beans out of it. Shane was a modern day Robin Hood. He was happy to receive from those that had a lot to give and then he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Shane had his own personal style and he would find a way to make people laugh when they were down. Just when you thought he was aloof or distant, he would give you the biggest hug when he saw you needed one. In the end, by donating his organs, he may save a number of lives. 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents John and Eleanor Coffield and Donald Brill, his cousin Scott McClintock, and most recently his sister Angie Coffield.

The Celebration of Life for Shane will be held Monday, October 19, 2020 at Valleybrook Church, 412 S. Barstow, downtown Eau Claire. Visitation will be held from 11-1 p.m.; service at 1 p.m. with a meal to follow. Shane will be laid to rest beside his sister Angie. There will be a private burial with close family at Lakeview Cemetery at a later date.

Donations may be made to the Shane Coffield Memorial Fund on GoFundMe.com.

  • Ann Smith My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family at the loss of your dear Shane. My words do not show my heart and how it is breaking for your family. Your family has endured unimaginable loss in 3 months with 2 of your dear children. (Angela ♥️)
    Shane is with his Savior but I realize too well after the loss of my son at 18, this does not help you, his loved ones who are still here on this earth, trying to live without him. I will bring you all to Jesus in prayer as often as I think of you. Ann

  • Cheryl Groat My son Alex was a friend of Shane's. I don't believe I have ever met him but Alex spoke very highly of him. Said he was an awesome friend and helped him many times. He will be sadly missed by my son. Sending my thoughts and prayers to your family. God has truly gained an angel.
