Shane D. Hockensmith

June 24, 1987 ~ January 29, 2018 (age 30)

Shane D. Hockensmith, 30, of New Oxford, was sent to heaven much too soon due to a tragic accident, Monday, January 29, 2018, in Abbottstown.  He was the husband of Ashley K. (Noble) Hockensmith.

Shane was born June 24, 1987, in Hanover, the son of Debra L. (Storm) Hockensmith of Abbottstown, and Larry E. Hockensmith of New Oxford.

Shane began his life in East Berlin with his mother, father, and brother. His love of hard work began at a young age on Buttercup Farm. Early on he displayed his natural mechanical ability. He continued to have a strong work ethic and built up his business that he proudly owned and operated, Shane D. Hockensmith Enterprises, Inc. Shane played baseball, and loved hunting, paintball, dirt bikes and kayaking. He also loved traveling, camping, cruising, parties with friends and family, and dancing. Shane attended St. John's United Church of Christ with his family where he married the love of his life, Ashley, and baptized his beautiful daughter, Reagan. Shane was an amazing, loving husband and very proud father who worked hard to provide the most perfect, magical life they all enjoyed, the definition of a life-well lived. Shane's pride and joy were his two girls. Shane was extremely selfless and generous, so willing to help others in the community. Shane was always kind to everyone he met.  Shane will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. 

In addition to his wife Ashley and his parents, Shane is survived by a daughter, Reagan K. Hockensmith of New Oxford, a brother, Brian P. Hockensmith and his wife Mandy of East Berlin, two nephews, Bryson L. and Brantley J. Hockensmith, both of East Berlin, his mother-in-law and father-in-law, David C. and Susan K.

Noble and his wife Kylie of York Springs, maternal grandmother, Dottie Storm, paternal grandmother, Marian Hockensmith, both of New Oxford, many aunts, uncles and cousins, and his Labrador Luke and his brother Jake.  He was predeceased by his grandparents, John and Ruth Noble, Buck and Sally Starner, Robert Storm, and Paul Hockensmith.
