It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shane David Ashmore, age 47, on November 10th, 2021, surrounded by those he loved the most.

Shane is survived by his loving wife Lisa Johnson, mom Claudette Ashmore, nieces Heather Allan and Maitraya Ashmore, grandpa Claude Gould, father-in-law David Johnson, mother-in-law Cheryl Johnson, brother-in-law Blair Johnson (Melissa Francis), as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends.

Shane was born on March 3rd, 1974, in Whitecourt, AB. He grew up enjoying dirt biking, snowboarding, snowmobiling and football in a family home that was filled with love.

Shane was determined, intelligent, kind, caring and a very hard-working entrepreneur. He loved all animals, especially his and Lisa's chihuahua Molly. Molly went everywhere with Shane and Lisa, Molly held a special place in Shane's heart.

Shane was not only a generous man within the communities he supported, but also with the time he spent with the people he cared about. He touched the lives of so many people across the world. Lisa and Shane travelled extensively together as Shane loved to experience new things, try new adventures, and learn new cultures. Even after meeting Shane for only 5 minutes, his kindness created a great impact on everyone.

Shane's family would like to thank Fox Flight Medivac for getting Shane back to Canada from Mexico. We would also like to express a big thank you to everyone who donated to the Go-Fund-Me to help with all the unexpected expenses, and finally a thank you to the staff of University of Alberta Hospital ICU.

Life will never be the same without Shane, but we take comfort in knowing how much of an impact Shane made on those around him, and that he lived life to the fullest. Shane will live on in the hearts and memories of so many people around the world.

Shane was predeceased by his dad David Ashmore, sister Trinity Ashmore, grandparents Ronald and Mildred Ashmore and his grandma Vivian Gould.

There will be a private family celebration of Shane's life at a later date.

  1. Cherish all your memories !
    Sending you hugs and prayers.
    Thinking of you during this difficult time!

  2. Lisa – I am so sorry that the world has lost Shane. He was a wonderful man and loved you dearly. So much love to you

    Carrie and Quinn

  3. You have my deepest sympathies, Lisa. You both have made such a mark on all who have ever met the two of you. Just know that Shane’s light will continue to burn bright to all that had the pleasure to know him. Lisa, your’s was a fairy tale come true. Xo

  4. Lisa, David and Cheryl. I can only offer you my sympathy. You have been much in my thoughts and prayers. I still think of the Johnson kids as being youngsters in the back seat bumming for candy at the gas station, not as adults with their own agendas. I hope that you can find some sort of comfort in knowing that so many people are concerned and worried about you. With love to you, and to mum and dad, I miss them greatly.

  8. Lisa, I am devastated to hear of Shane’s passing. He truly was one of a kind. Sharing his knowledge of pain management with anyone who experienced pain and discomfort. Every time I saw him, I’d give him a big ole hug and we just laughed ourselves silly wherever it happened.
