William Clifford Shangreaux was born on January 3, 1973 in Pine Ridge to Rick and Patti (Clifford) Shangreaux.
Willie “Willie Styles” as many knew him by, was a smart and talented man. He had a love for music and was always down for a jam session. He was a natural performer in many aspects of life. His sense of humor was out of this world, he could have you laughing within seconds of walking in the door. He had a generous soul, he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He loved kids and spent many days taking his son and nieces Bella and Delilah fishing and nightcrawler hunting this past summer. Willie will be missed dearly by so many, he has so many friends and family who loved him so much. Willie always had a hug for everyone and was forever making everyone laugh. We will remember Willie for his sense of humor, his generous soul, and his ability to jam out! Our beloved son, brother, dad, and uncle is free and walks next to our Lord.
William is survived by his parents, Rick and Patti Shangreaux of Pine Ridge; children, Shauntel Shangreaux, Mariah Shangreaux, Kordell Shangreaux, Dylan Shangreaux, Zachariah Shangreaux, and Danniel Shangreaux all of Pine Ridge, and Taten Red Owl of Kyle; brothers, Donovan Shangreaux of Blackwell, Okla., Shawn Swallow of Rapid City, Richard John Shangreaux and James Shangreaux both of Pine Ridge; sisters, Angela Shangreaux and Rhiannon Harvey of Pine Ridge; special friend, Jody Pacheco of Pine Ridge; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, & nephews.
