On March 28, 1992 in Dubuque, Iowa, Shaun was united in marriage to Kari Carlson.  They had shared over 26 years of marriage together.

Shaun was a faithful member of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Lake Ozark, Missouri. Shaun lived out his faith serving in multiple positions, serving as Elder, Vice President, President. Shaun also served in multiple building projects at Christ the King. As Vice President of the congregation he served to chair the building committee which was responsible for the planning of our current worship facility.

For the past 15 years, Shaun co-owned and operated Otto Construction along with his brother Tony.  Shaun was an avid outdoors enthusiast and loved hunting, fishing, scuba diving and traveling.  

Shaun is survived by his wife Kari of Lake Ozark; his parents, Robert and Virginia Otto of Lake Ozark; his brother Tony Otto and wife, Jennifer, of Lake Ozark; and his paternal grandmother Ethel Otto, of Lake Ozark along with several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to offer a special “Thank You” to Lake Regional Hospice.

For all who trust in Jesus, there is no brighter hope to dispel the grief and pain that we feel at Shaun’s departure to be with His Lord, than Christ’s own blood sealed assurance that we who trust in the saving merits of Jesus Christ, will one day be reunited with Shaun and all the ransomed saints in heaven. May this be our hope and our strength! To God be all glory, forever and ever! Amen.
