The necessary restrictions over the last 2 1/2 years have affected all our lives, as a result, a Celebration of Shawn’s Life was delayed and will be held at 11:00 AM on the 28th., May 2022.
An internment service will take place at the River Road Cemetery 1110 River Rd., Massey, Ontario (The Municipality of Sable-Spanish Rivers). Following the service, a reception will be held at 911 River Rd., approximately 1 mile west of the cemetery.
As most of you know Shawn passed on the 25th of October 2021 following a 2 1/2 year, battle with cancer. Shawn remained positive and determined until his final couple of days. Thanks to the dedicated care and determined support of his wife Stephanie and the many doctors and nurses involved in his treatment.
He is survived by his wife Stephanie and three daughters: Caitlyn (Tristan), Donna (Lloyd), Nicolle (Karlee), Parents; Garry & Rhoda and brother Kim (Mary). Shawn also leaves behind his treasured Aunts, Uncles and cousins and friends whom he loved so very much. Shawn was still active in the military having completed in access of 36 years of service. He was our family hero. His many peace keeping and battle deployments speak to his bravery and determination. This was also exhibited in his battle to the end in fighting his illness. We are so proud.
