SHANE LEWIS FOX
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Shane on February 5, 2022, 49 years.
He is survived by his wife Treva, children, Ella and Xander, father Bill, and sister Shaylene. He was predeceased by his mother Lorraine.
Shane was employed by the Winnipeg School Division, he started as a teacher, became a vice principal and then principal. Shane was an active member of Valley Gardens Community Club on the Board of Directors going above and beyond as Convenor of Hardball and Ringette, and volunteering as a coach. His love of sports led him to coach his own children's teams, supporting, encouraging and lending a helping hand. Shane enjoyed being with family and friends, trips to the beach, golfing with buddies and conversations around a fire. He loved NFL games, always reminding his family "guess what day it is"? His presence filled the room, never the first to leave a party as to not miss out on a good time. He was known for his wit, sarcasm, ability to crack a joke or a playful comment. Our home won't be filled with his laughter and boisterous voice but with the memories we made together. We will forever miss him!
A celebration is planned for a later date.

Condolences & Memories (11 entries)
Our family would like to extend our sincerest condolences. Our child enjoyed interacting with "Mr. FOX" while at Lord Robert's. Words truly cannot express how sad it is to know he is no longer here. May his fortitude live forever in your hearts, he truly touched ours. - Posted by: Becky (Acquaintance) on: Mar 30, 2022
I had the pleasure of working with Shane when he coached our ringette team, "ESP Herricanes"! I remember the first parent meeting when he asked for a team manager to volunteer and when I raised my hand and said "Why not!", the rest was history. He made it seamless, providing direction, tips and tricks and in turn, it was one of the best experiences for our team! His encouragement was appreciated and I will never forget his kind words on how we made it easy for him so he can just focus on coaching. It was so much fun and we had many events planned and rewards, including one especially made for him. He truly was an inspirational coach and genuine person. In fact, many years later since this experience in 2017, our girls still say he was the best coach ever! He will be missed by many. - Posted by: Betty (Former Team Manager, Ringette) on: Feb 22, 2022

I was just informed of the news and wanted to offer my condolences to Shane's family and sister Shaylene. After hearing the news I found myself reflecting and remembering all the great times I had with Shane growing up in the 80s. Shane and I used to have so much fun playing hockey in the Fox's basement. I remember we would absolutely hammer tennis balls at one another. I also have great memories of us playing 500 (baseball) in the front street, hide n seek, guns, etc. Always lots of activity on Bridgecrest Dr. and he had the best fort in the back yard. But my favorite memory growing up with Shane was going to his house to play with his Star Wars toys lol. He had the best collection of figures. Shane was a great part of my childhood and he will not be forgotten. - Posted by: Dean Hinther (Childhood Friend/Neighbor) on: Feb 22, 2022
I want to first offer my deepest condolences to all of Shane's family. My wish is that you would be comforted by all of your memories of him. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Shane (Mr. Fox) was an amazing principle for almost 4 years at my sons' school. The first day he came to the school, he put name tags on every student so that he could learn their names quickly. Within a couple of days he had every student's name memorized. But he didn't just stop there. He would say "hi" to every student each day as they came in the school doors and it was his goal to get them to say "hi" to him and to get to know them on a personal level; what they liked, disliked etc. He was like a caring father to every student. As time went on he went the extra mile to assist each student as needed or if they required extra supports in the classroom. I really got to know Shane more when I became the Lunch Program Coordinator this September. He coached me to help oversee all the day to day duties. When I didn't know how to handle a situation, I would ask him and he always had an answer. Mr. Fox, you will be deeply missed as the top team member of our school! May you rest in peace.

Our condolences to Shane's family. We knew him as a boy and watched him grow into a very kind and happy gentleman. He will be missed but never forgotten. RIP Shane. Bob & Betty Hykaway - Posted by: Bobby Hykaway (Friend) on: Feb 19, 2022
My deepest condolences to Shane's wife Treva, his children Ella and Xander, and his father and sister. What a shock to hear of Shane's passing. He was such a fun loving, joyful person, but also so supportive when needed. I worked with Shane at Cecil Rhodes, we started around the same time and were on the Intermediate team together. Lots of laughs and good memories. I wish his family much strength, and I hope they have some comfort in knowing how well thought of and well liked he was among his colleagues. - Posted by: Corinna Bartz (Former Cecil Rhodes School colleague ) on: Feb 19, 2022
To Treva and family, Max and I (and family) just wanted to say how sorry we are for you and your familys loss. Our hearts go out to you. Thinking of you at this sad time and sending love. 🧡 - Posted by: Shari Bailer (Former co-worker) on: Feb 19, 2022
The times that we spent together in the stands at various hockey rinks will always be a memory I’ll cherish. Literally 100’s of hours. Laughing, cracking jokes (usually at the expense of each other) I had the opportunity to coach with Shane as well. I’ll never forget seeing Xander score his first goal of the season, and instantly looking over at Shane, and seeing tears falling out of his sheer pride. Only to see Xander’s tears as he skated to bench anxious to share the moment with his Dad. Treva, Ella, and Xander, I pray that you find peace in knowing how many lives he changed. From his students, to those in his community, to his numerous friends. He will be sorely missed. - Posted by: Jonathan Middlestead (Friend ) on: Feb 19, 2022
