On Monday, September 9th, 2019, Richard “Rick” Patrick Shaughnessy, loving husband, father, and Popa, passed away at the age of 67 surrounded by love.

Rick was born on April 18, 1952 in Brooklyn, NY to Richard and Jean Shaughnessy. After his father’s passing, Jean later married Robert Stockhausen. Between them they raised 7 children: Richard, Kevin, Theresa, Robert, Kathleen, Christine, and Jean.

In 1970 he graduated from Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, NY and joined the United States Navy. He served honorably for 14 years as a Seabee. In 1998, Rick graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northeastern State University. He dedicated most of his working life to help improve and honor the lives and sacrifices of other veterans. He had retired earlier this year from his position at the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs.

Rick was a hard worker who was always quick to volunteer to help others however he could, within his local community, among his fellow veterans, and by joining relief efforts involving emergencies and natural disasters. His willingness to care and act for the greater good has touched many lives.

Rick was a devoted husband who enjoyed 36 years of marriage with his wife Karen. Together they raised five children and he was a proud, doting Popa to 9 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, Richard, his mother, Jean, his father, Robert. He is survived by his adoring wife Karen, of Muskogee, OK, his children Richard Jr. and his wife Robin, of McAlester, OK, Brian of Arlington, VA, Tracy of McAlester, OK, Danielle and her husband Jeremy of Muskogee, OK, Kelly Ann and her husband Matt of Cerrillos, NM, Anjanette and her husband Jeff of Bixby, OK, his grandchildren Greyson and his wife Chelsey, Justin and his wife Julia, Kyle, Bailey, Kendall, Megan, Zachary, Myles, and Konrad, his great-grandchildren Bryleigh, Casen, Gavin, and Dakota, his Goddaughters Jessica and Raven, his siblings, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and colleagues.

Funeral services will be held 10:00 am Friday September 13, 2019 at Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home in Muskogee. Interment will be at 12:00 pm at Fort Gibson National Cemetery. Viewing will be on Thursday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm with the family greeting friends from 5-7.
