Everyone who knew him called him Sky. He had an unforgettable name and he was an unforgettable friend.
"He was there for me. I was there for him. He impacted my life a lot," said Alexa Estrella.
On Wednesday, Skyler's friends remembered a life lost too soon.
"He was always smiling. It didn't matter what he was doing. So outgoing and friendly," said friend Hunter Shelton.
Both friends made sure Sky's legacy was not lost. Students at Fayetteville High School wore all shade of blue on Wednesday, the same color of Sky's eyes.
"Knowing that he brought Northwest Arkansas together and brought students together just in this school who might never know each other...they may not know Sky, but he brought people together," said his friends.
Classmates grieved together, not only at school, but on Facebook, with an entier page dedicated to Sky's life.
"It just goes to show how really the community banded together and wanted to show appreciation for this so his death doesn't go in vain," added Hunter Shelton.
His friends look back on the life of their confidant, and at the same time, help out Sky's family.
Fellow classmate Kylie Whitlock put together a donation box stand for students to donate to help the Shawn family in this difficult time.
"He did what he needed to do on Earth. He lived his life to the fullest. There's not a person who can say a mean thing about him," said Kylie.
While he did live his life to the fullest, friends will remember the times they had with Skyler Shawn.
To donate to the Skyler Shawn Funeral Fund, just go to any Arvest Bank. A memorial service will be held for Skyler at Fellowship Bible Church in Lowell on Friday at noon.
And because Sky's grandfather, David Reed, is the assistant football coach at Southwest Jr High School, the team will be wearing decals on their helmets in memory of Sky at their game Thursday, August 30th against Shiloh. The spirit team will also be wearing ribbons in memory of Sky.
Donations can also be made at a table located just inside the gate Thursday at the SWJH game held at Springdale High School.
