Shane Pacheco, 31

Nov 25, 2019

On November 13, 2019, Shane Tyler Pacheco, loving father and son, died from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident in Fairhaven. He was 31 years old.

Shane was a lifelong resident of Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He graduated from Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School and was a carpenter by trade. Shane took pride in his work and his dream was to one day open a business with his mother providing people with quality craftsmanship on the South Coast.

Shane lived life to the fullest. He was a passionate gun collector, motorcycle enthusiast, and enjoyed camping on the Saco River with his family and friends. Most of all, Shane loved spending time with his daughter, who was the pride and joy of his life.

Shane always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips. He was a loyal father, son, brother, and friend. He will be deeply missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.

He is survived by his daughter, Kinslee Marie Pacheco, who meant the world to him; his beloved parents, Theresa Stewart and Andrew Pereira; his stepfather Mark Stewart; his brothers, Michael Pacheco, Andrew Pereira and his partner Ashlynne Rogers, and Adam Desruisseau, who was technically a cousin, but a brother at heart; his maternal grandparents, Richard and Judith Dimond; his nephew Hunter Pereira; Michaela Feeney, mother of Kinslee, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

He is predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Marilyn Pereira.

His graveside service was held on November 25 at St. Mary's Cemetery.
