Shaun Eagleson - a victim of alleged drunk driving in Newport Beach, California

Shaun and Sandra Eagleson
Shaun Eagleson, age 30, of Fountain Valley, died on October 19, 2014, at a hospital in Mission Viejo, California.

He was cycling along the East Coast Highway in the late afternoon. He biked everywhere, even to work.

Shaun was struck by a man driving a pickup truck who fled the scene of the collision. The driver is also suspected of being drunk at the time.

Neil Storm Stephany, age 23, of Huntington Beach, has been charged with murder, felony hit-and-run and possession of a controlled substance. In 2010, he pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. He was charged with drunk driving in 2011. In March of 2013, he was charged with assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. He has had a restraining order placed against him.

A fund raising website has been set up to help Shaun's family cover funeral expenses at gofundme.com/g2gdss.

Shaun and his wife, Sandra, met at Valley View High School in Moreno Valley. He was shy and it took forever for him to approach her. They were married eight years ago.

Shaun was a talented musician who had attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. He got a job selling and installing high-end audio systems in Huntington
Angels of God, pray for Shaun and
for those who have lost him

Friends describe him as genuine, kind and humble. He loved his family, animals and music.

Shaun's family are devastated by his tragic and senseless death. They describe him as a loving, affectionate and considerate husband. He was a hard-worker. He was always there for his wife.

He will be forever mourned.

Oceans of tears will be shed for this man.

Advice To All Drivers: If you find that you are wasted, drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

Shaun is survived by many loving relatives including his mother, Sylvia; his father, Craig; and his wife, Sandra.

Pray for justice for Shaun.

God save us from the drunk and the doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Shaun is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
