Husband of Susan Cleaver Shea.

Father of Christopher Michael Shea, Jr. and Elizabeth Shea.

Corporal Shea was tragically killed by a repeated drunk driver on Route 1 in Delaware.

A car that had been involved in a hit and run accident just moments before was driving northbound on the southbound side of Route 1. Corporal Shea was driving into Sussex County and had not heard dispatch make the broadcast since each county broadcast on a different channel. She was coming around a bend and tried to avoid the car, that he saw at the last minute but the two cars hit head on.

Corporal Shea had just been promoted to Corporal on the Friday before he died, and was an esteemed law enforcement officer.

Shea was a former U.S. Marine and came from a large family in New Jersey.
