Shawn Kozak passed away at his home in Wyoming, Ohio on July 22, 2022. He grew up on a beautiful lake in Greene, NY. He graduated from Greene Central Schools, the Boston University School of Engineering, and earned an MBA from the University of Utah. He started his career designing industrial cleaning equipment in Chicago, and most recently worked in aerospace manufacturing. 

Shawn had many interests, but his love of water was the greatest. The summers he spent sailing in Bar Harbor, ME and Martha's Vineyard, MA were the best of his life. Walking around to look at the boats was a must when near a harbor. He especially got a kick out of walking his dog down to the City Dock in Annapolis, MD when he lived there. 

Shawn enjoyed reading, music, walking in the woods, cooking and entertaining, and especially travel. He was fortunate to have seen so many amazing places around the world, whether for work or for pleasure. That same wanderlust spurred him to make more than one cross-country career move, and he always saw the good things in every place he lived.

Shawn was a loving husband and father. He is survived by his wife and best friend of 25 years, Angie, and children Kate and Evan. He was the beloved son of Jim and Valerie Kozak of Greene, NY, son-in-law of Frank and Diane Graham of Dayton, OH, brother of Collin Kozak and Aubrey Kozak (Ryan Fisher), and brother-in-law of Ben Graham (Tomi White). He was uncle to Collin James Kozak (Sam Lewis), Aliana and Wren Fisher, and Ellie and Finleigh Graham. He also leaves many cherished aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 

There aren't enough words to perfectly describe who Shawn was or what he meant to us; he will be forever missed. 

Visitation will be held on Monday August 8, 2022, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Spring Grove Funeral Home, 4389 Spring Grove Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45223. A celebration of life reception will follow the visitation from 6:00-8:00 at Station Family + BBQ, 400 Wyoming Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45215. Memorial contributions may be given to the GoFundMe account benefitting Shawn's wife and children at or to the Wyoming School Music Association at
