Shannon Lee Horner, the beloved owner and operator Shannon's East End Transmission Service, passed away on January 18, 2024, in Carrollton, KY. He was born on August 2, 1961, the same town where he would spend his entire life.

His career as the owner and operator of Shannon's East End Transmission Service was a testament to his strong work ethic and commitment excellence. Through his business, he provided valuable services to the community and built lasting relationships with his customers.
