I didn't know him but I just saw on Bob Morales' FB page that Shawn Parro who was one of his employees at ASV died on Sunday at Glen Helen. I just didn't want it to go by unacknowledged, I couldn't find anything with a search but if it's already been posted just delete this admins.

Every time this happens I always try to find out exactly how the rider crashed as to rationalize with myself that it won't happen to me. This sport eats its young. So sad. Prayers to the family!

We were there...very sad...it happened Saturday nite at the StadiumCross race. We were in race 9 and he was 10 so I was back at our truck and didn't see it but it was on the front triple, which was very doable. I heard then he was non responsive. I know he had a neck brace on.....God Speed Shawn!

Shawn Parro a man that everyone loved. Always full of energy and life. He brought a smile to everyone's face with his smile and humor. If you ever had the chance to talk to him or meet you would know what I am talking about. Being the girlfriend of Shawn was a pleasure and always full of love, laughter, and smiles. Never a dull moment with him. From telling him good luck I will see you after the race to saying goodbye for the last time was an experience that I never want to go through again. I was there at the time of the accident and watched the whole thing happen right in front of me, being a nurse and girlfriend I ran over as quickly as I could and was with him throughout the whole night. Such a great man with such positive energy was taken away way too soon. There are no answers of what exactly happened and no one will ever know. Shawn Parro will forever be missed. Fly high! RIP 729 gone too quickly.

Devastating. Shawn and I became race friends this year at TWMXRS. Saturday we were chatting up at the KCF Ride day. Specifically hunting down food before riding. I told him I was racing OTHG and he told me about the night race.
Man, I am gonna miss him as will the rest of the walkerclanmx.

I'm so sorry for your loss and for having to go through that, but I am also glad he had a loved one with him. I'm sure he felt your presence even if he couldn't respond. There is a picture of him on the line before his race on @thomasdunn_72 instagram you will want to save. Prayers to you, his family, Bob and the kids, and all of the ASV family!
