It is with great sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of our beloved Dad and Grandpa, Samuel Gary Shemko on March 16, 2022 at the age of 95.

The memories of our Dad will live in our hearts forever as he leaves behind his children; Grant, Bruce (Lisa), Gayle (Wayne) and Wendy (Nick), Grandchildren Breanne and Dustin and younger Sister Marie.

Sam was predeceased by his loving wife Irene. Sam’s kind gentle spirit touched us all and he made the world a better place.

Sam was deeply loved by all who had the honour of knowing him and will be dearly missed.

His never ending faith in the Lord gives the family some comfort and peace knowing he received a beautiful homecoming joining our beloved Mom in Heaven.

A combined celebration of life for both Sam and Irene to be determined at a later date.

  1. Sam was a great father-in-law as well as a great person hard working loved his family gave his family what he could and would do what he could to help his family I have loads of respect for Sam I will miss you until we meet again some day I will love and cherish your daughter Gayle so you don’t have to worry about her thank you for being in my life

  2. Sam’s Family,
    Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear Father.
    I will miss our daily ‘porch talks’ where he, Grant & I solved all the world’s problems. He always said we do not choose when we are called home, but as long as we live kind, our journey will be happy. I know your Dad’s was.
    He will be missed by everyone who was blessed with knowing him.

  3. Grant, Bruce, Gayle, Wendy and families
    My heartfelt condolences on Sam’s passing. May you forever treasure many wonderful memories of him. I will miss the telephone conversations, the coffee meetings at Tim Horton’s and occasional visits at his home. Sam was a humble and selfless man who was respected by everyone who knew him. I am blessed to have known him for so many years.
    God’s Blessings
    Sylvia Ewanik
