1964 - 2021

After a lengthy illness, Shane went to be with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on June 25, 2021.
He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 26 years, Hélène (nee Verrier), his son Shelby and his daughter Stacy.
Also his parents, Nelson and Eileen, brothers, Ray (Patti), Ron (Geri), his nephews, Lee (Sam,) Ryan (Alana), and niece Lauren, five great-nephews and nieces, and brothers and sisters-in-law, along with their families, as well as very many friends.
Shane grew up in the West End of Winnipeg and moved to Rosser at the age of 12. At the age of seven he started attending Living Bible Explorers and had many adventures learning about the word of God and getting into mischief at camp and at boys club.
That is where he accepted Christ and made many friends that are still in his life today. That is also where he would continue to be involved later in life by speaking at many camps, and help in running his own boys club.
Shane's pride and joy were his family and he loved to go on family car trips, camping, water and amusement parks.
He loved to go fishing with his son and his daughter had him wrapped around her little finger. When they were young he would invent games to play with them such as steam roller, giving rides for tickets and icky man at the beach.
His biggest passion was his love of car racing. He would race or go watch racing any and every chance he got whether it was near or far.
His friends always joked about the time he lost his gas tank in the middle of the speedway. He just couldn't quite figure out why his car had suddenly stopped running. He loved to joke around with everybody even when the joke was about him.
Shane worked many jobs over the years, had his own businesses and was never shy about trying new things or taking courses to better himself.
If he could tell you anything right now it would be to give your life to Jesus. To accept that we all fall short and we can never do enough or be good enough to enter heaven, except for Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. All we have to do is accept this wonderful gift.
Due to Covid restrictions, a private ceremony will be held.
Those who wish, may send flowers to the family or may donate to Living Bible Explorers or Union Gospel Mission.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • My condolences to all his family. Shane and I were friends in elementary school. He was a good, honest soul and a great friend. I remember him being over at our house many times playing various games or we would be bumper shining on cars that stopped to cross Wellington Avenue. He left us all great memories. - Posted by: Derek Goritz (Elementary school friend) on: Nov 27, 2022

  • I was very saddened to learn today of the passing of Shane Shodine. Over the past 20 years Shane and I became good friends through business. He served for many years on the board of directors of Bird River Resources. He will be greatly missed by all of his former associates and friends. My deepest sympathies to the family.

  • Shane left wonderful memories in my mind from the day he was in my grade 6 classroom at Wellington School. This cute little blond kid was energetic and funny. He was so much fun I often talked about him to my girlfriend and future wife as we were dating in the early 70s. She found his obituary in the paper and remembered him immediately. He was always worried about his homework assignments but got them done eventually. I am excited about his faith walk. I too am a Christian and my son actually worked for Living Bible Explorers too. Now my son is a youth pastor. I was definitely surprised and saddened he passed away so young. I would have loved to have talked to him yet. My wife and I send our condolences and we will pray for his family as you grieve this huge loss. Call me sometime and we could talk about his life and legacy. Thanks. - Posted by: Juergen Werner (Grade 6 teacher of Shane) on: Jul 04, 2021

  • Favorite Memories: 1) Shane as a teenager lighting a fire on the cabin floor at Gimli Bible Camp during a youth retreat. 2) A canoe trip in Northern Ontario with Shane, George Walker, Mike McInnes and I. We forgot a frying pan so Shane and Mike went into the bush and found a flat Ford hub cap with a solid bottom and a one inch rim. We cleaned it and cooked our pancakes in it. All of them said "Ford Motor Company" on them. 3) Shane and Helene coming to Brightwood Ranch to be the speaker. So sorry to hear of his passing. Shane, say hi to George for us.
