STEPHEN (BRENT) SHULE Stephen Brent Shule, 44 years of age, of St. Vital, MB, passed away on December 29, 2012 as a result of health complications. Brent was born May 24, 1968 to Frank and Pat Shule (nee Walterson) in Killarney, Manitoba, the eldest of their four children. He was predeceased by his mother Patricia in 2010 and is survived by his father Frank Shule of Killarney; his brother Jamey, Jamey's wife Sheryl and their children, Taylor and Brennan of Killarney; his brother Todd, Todd's wife Shannon and their children, Graeden and Griffin of Vermilion, Alberta; his sister Stacey and her partner Quentin of Winnipeg. Brent loved his family dearly and was especially proud to be an uncle to his four nieces and nephews. He is also survived by a large, extended family who, along with his immediate family, mourn the loss of a beloved and kind family member. Brent was raised in Killarney on his family's farm and attended school in Killarney where he was awarded the Governor General's medal upon graduation from Grade 12. He furthered his education at the University of Manitoba, achieving a Master's degree in Actuarial Mathematics. Brent had a great love of sports and as a child and teenager, he played hockey, baseball and football. As an adult he continued to be involved in all these sports. He served as the equipment manager for the St. Vital Junior Victorias hockey team for the last eight years and was an umpire in city baseball leagues. But his greatest love was football, the CFL and his beloved Blue Bombers. Brent had a heart of Blue and Gold, never missed a home game and rarely missed a Grey Cup game. He loved attending the Grey Cup all across Canada and developed lifelong friendships with other fans of the CFL. He was excited about the new Bomber stadium and already had his tickets for next season. Brent touched many lives and will be sadly missed by his family and all with whom he worked and cheered. A memorial service will be held at the Wheatland Chapel in Killarney, Manitoba on Friday, January 4, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Brent may be made to Kid Sport Manitoba, 145 Pacific Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3B 2Z6, Messages of condolence may be made online at Killarney Boissevain Funeral Home Ltd.

Just saw this notice of his passing. So sorry to hear. He was a great person. - Posted by: Alex Kogan (University classmate) on: Jun 11, 2020

  • He was part of our tailgating group before and after the Bomber home games. He was such a nice man and bled blue and gold. Our condolences to his family. - Posted by: Carrie & Danny Locke (friend) on: Jan 08, 2013

  • My sincere condolences to the family. I have known Brent for about 7 years through our CFL travels. Brent loved the CFL and his blue & gold Bombers! We have been roommates at the Grey Cup for 3 of the last 4 years. On a positive note, he celebrated and attended the most recent historical game in Toronto at the end of November - the 100th Grey Cup where we sat with my family on game day. Brent will be my roommate forever at Grey Cups! He was a wonderful person & friend who will be greatly missed by many. Brent had a memorable smile, was kind-hearted and a man of honesty and integrity. He was fairly quiet but when he spoke, we listened. He was fun to be around. Unfortunately, he will not be at the opening of the new stadium in Winnipeg which he was so looking forward to. However, when we watch any of the future Bombers games, we will always think of Brent and know he is there, cheering on his blue & gold from above. Brent was loved by all those he met. He will be missed! Love you Brent! Brewster - Posted by: Bruce "Brewster" Findley (CFL Friend) on: Jan 07, 2013

  • I worked with Brent many years ago at Canadian Tire on Regent Avenue. I have many fond memories of Brent. I am in shock to hear of his passing. My deepest condolences to all of you. May God bring you peace and comfort in this difficult time. Brent will always be with you, his spirit will live on in those he loved. - Posted by: Tanya Montebruno (coworker / friend) on: Jan 05, 2013

  • Our deepest sympathies on the loss of Brent. We met Brent at Grey Cup a number of years ago and had the opportunity to get to know him through attending the various events, meeting up for breakfasts and having many late night chats. Brent truly loved the Bombers and wore his team colours proudly - even though we are not Bomber fans, we always met up with Brent at Touchdown Manitoba every year. We feel fortunate to have met Brent and had the chance to be a part of the “Fellowship” with him. He will be truly missed. - Posted by: Tim Moffatt & Cindy Boehmer ((CFL Friends)) on: Jan 05, 2013

  • I met Brent at Labor Day Classic a # of years ago. He was always so nice to everyone and always smiling. And everyone knows how much he loved the Bombers - Posted by: Chantel (Friend) on: Jan 04, 2013

  • I grew up with Brent. I had the chance to hug him after every goal, tackle, hit and race and those will be the greatest memories I have of him. His drive, determination and effort was always an example his teammates and friends tried to follow. We hadn't seen each other since we were 19. As I read the comments of the people who knew him best today he grew up to be the man we all expected. A man who you could proudly call a friend. My condolences to his family - Posted by: Greg (high school friend) on: Jan 04, 2013

  • My condolences to Brent's family. I first got to know him through and then in person. I am a life-long Blue Bomber fan that lives in Toronto and this is what first brought us together. Brent always made a point of saying hello to me whenever we would see each other at football games or practices. His smile and his opinions will be missed! RIP Brent. - Posted by: Cori Mark () on: Jan 04, 2013

  • Sincere condolences to the Shule family on the loss of Brent, good man, scholar and sportsman. May Peace be with you! - Posted by: Graham and Janice Dickie (great uncle) on: Jan 04, 2013

  • I was so shocked to hear of Brent's sudden passing. As a fellow moderator on the Bomber's fan forum, Brent loved "his" Bombers, and was always very knowledgeable about the CFL and the Bombers. As a tribute to him, I am calling on all moderators and friends to meet at the first Bomber game at Investor's Group Field and make a toast in his memory. It saddens me that he can't be there in person, but, he will be there in spirit and live on in our hearts. - Posted by: Franca McQuggin (fellow moderator/Bomber fan) on: Jan 03, 2013

  • Brent will be sadly missed by his entire CFL family. What a loss of a true gentleman, with the beautiful smile. My sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: Lori Bursey (Friend) on: Jan 02, 2013

  • I didn't know Brent but if he was anything like Pat and Stacey I would have loved him too!!! So very sorry for your family's loss. - Posted by: Debb Nicol (née Campbell) (Friend to Stacey ) on: Jan 02, 2013

  • As so many have said already, Brent was a kind and gentle man. He has friends from coast to coast from his travels following the CFL and I am proud to have been one of them. He and I would rile each other up about sports at times, his passion for his teams was unquestionable, as was his devotion to the sports he volunteered for. I will forever think of Brent as each CFL season begins, every time the Lions play the Bombers, and most of all every November where there will be a void at Grey Cup. Rest in peace, Brent. - Posted by: Brian Wawryshyn (CFL Friend) on: Jan 02, 2013
