Gloucester - G. Vaughan Shannon III, 61, of Gloucester, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at his residence.
He was born in Gloucester on August 30, 1957, the son of the late George V. Shannon Jr. and Elvira C. (Gentile) Shannon.
Vaughan was a lifelong resident and a graduate of the Gloucester High School, class of 1975.
When he was young he participated in all sports. He was an avid New England sports fan and especially enjoyed attending the Gloucester Fisherman football games with his good friends. Vaughan could often be found at one of his happy places, Good Harbor Beach or the MAC. Working out was his biggest passion and obviously the other was bronzing himself in the sun. He most recently worked for NOAA as a security guard.
He will be sadly missed by his family and many friends.
Vaughan is survived by his aunts, Mary (Linquata) Gentile, Mary (Crowley) Gentile and Christine Burr; two uncles, David Shannon and Richard, husband of Marlene (Stone) Shannon; his longtime good friend, Jack Anderson; and many cousins. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Antonio and Albina Gentile; and his paternal grandparents, George V. and Evelyn Shannon.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Manchester Athletic Club (The MAC), 8 Atwater Avenue, Manchester, MA on Saturday, August 17, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his memory, c/o Frank Gentile, 8 Crestview Terrace, Gloucester, MA 01930.
Arrangements by Greely Funeral Home, 212 Washington Street, Gloucester.
