We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Shaun Firman (SPC 2002-07) who passed away peacefully after a year-long battle with cancer on June 5, 2020 surrounded by his partner Emma Hoffman, family and friends.

It was on his 30th birthday last year that a lump on Shaun’s neck was diagnosed as a non-UV related squamous cell carcinoma. Despite having the lump removed and enduring several bouts of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the cancer sadly spread.

Shaun’s friends and family continued to rally around him, helping raise funds for expensive immunotherapy treatments, and offered him as much love and comfort as possible in his final days.

At the time of his passing he was surrounded by his beautiful partner Emma and his close family and friends.

Shaun was a day student at SPC between 2002-07 and played in the school’s croquet and table tennis competitions in his senior year. On completing Year 12, Shaun became a greenkeeper. Shaun is survived by his parents Mark and Katrina and sister Carly.
