Brett Shields, 50, of Lincoln, formerly of Doniphan, passed away February 20th at his residence.  A graveside service is scheduled for Friday, February 26th at 2:30 pm at the Cedarview Cemetery in Doniphan.  Pastor Scott Evans will officiate.  All Faiths Funeral Home is entrusted with arrangements.  We are still recommending that masks be worn.

Brett was born on February 15, 1971 in Lincoln to Robert and Vickie (Hinkle) Shields. He grew up on the Shields’ family farm in Doniphan and graduated from Grand Island Central Catholic High School in 1989.  He later attended University of Nebraska at Kearney.

In his younger years, Brett attended the Doniphan Methodist Church, where he loved to sing; participated in 4H by taking a cow to the fair each summer; and enjoyed canoeing on the Platte River with his father and brother.

Brett was an avid football fan enjoying weekly pizza parties with his friends.  He also enjoyed all Huskers sports, reading, singing, his Bible study group, eating out, and meeting new people.  Brett will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.

Those left to cherish his memory include his parents, Bob and Vickie; brother, Scott; caseworker, Patrick; and many friends.

Brett was preceded in death by his grandparents, Judson and Frances Shields, and Don and Betty Hinkle.
