Shaquille Edward Thunder Hawk, 22, of Rushville, Neb. was called home on Oct. 3, 2015 as a result of a car accident. He was born June 24, 1993 in Rapid City, S.D. to Donell Evans and Terry Thunder Hawk.
Shaquille spent his younger years living between Nebraska and Minnesota; attending school in both places. In Gordon, Shaquille joined wrestling and proved to be very good at it. He then moved onto and attended the Pine Ridge Job Corps where he spread his sarcastic charm to make many friends from all across the country and around the world. From Job Corps, he graduated with Laborer’s Maintenance.
After Job Corps, he moved to Lincoln for a short time where he worked in construction. After a few months there, he decided to move back home to be with his mother. While he was back, he worked at Ideal Market as the self-proclaimed “Mall Cop.” While there, he wiggled his way into their hearts.
Being the restless spirit that he was, he moved to Winner, S.D. for some time working for Kooch’s Washing where he cleaned pheasants.
His last journey landed him in Casper, WY. There he found the job he loved most working as an apprentice for Budget Pluming & Rooter.
Shaquille was preceded in death by his great grandparents, Kenny and Lena Johns; grandparents, Dallas and Theresa Evans; great aunt, Leona; and brother, Kenleigh Thunder Hawk.
Shaquille is survived by his mother, Donell Evans; father, Terry Thunder Hawk and his wife Jessica; siblings, Darci Hamilton, Jessica American Horse, Dakota, Martina, Raiden, Keiran, and Torin Thunder Hawk; niece and nephew, Chevy and Haven; uncles, Travis Johns, Taylor Johns, Dalvin Evans, and JD Evans; aunts, Denise Evans, April Thunder Hawk, and Francine Woman Dress; grandmother, Linda John; and many cousins.
