Karson Noah Shanner, 18, of Carlinville, passed away Wednesday afternoon, October 13, 2021 at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield, IL. Karson was born on June 6, 2003 to William R. "Bill" and Jane (Boehm) Shanner in Springfield, IL. Karson was a 2021 graduate of Carlinville High School, graduating early. After high school, he was checking into a career as a union lineman. He was a farmhand for Boehm Farms, and spent the summer months mowing and weed eating with his cousin Gavin and "Pop". He was a member of the Carlinville United Methodist Church. Karson loved fast cars, and owned a 1978 Z28, and enjoyed working on anything mechanical. He loved hanging with his buddies and spending time at the farm. Karson also enjoyed riding dirt bikes and shooting guns. He considered himself a "down home American kid", and a patriot. Karson loved spending time with his great-grandpa, Ralph Wadsworth, whom he thought the world of. He liked to get into arguments with his family (when he knew he was right), and tease his little sister, Zoe.
