It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of 43 year old Grayson, on May 6, 2023 in Kelowna, BC.
Grayson will always be remembered for his incredible smile, great sense of humour, his abundance of kindness and generosity, but mostly for his love of family and his love and pride for his son.
There will forever be a void in the lives of those he leaves behind. He will be lovingly remembered by his son Devin Parris, his mother and other father Billie and Shawn Schibler, sister Andrea (Mike) McKinlay, brothers, Shawn C. Schibler, Kyle (Kristen) Schibler, Robert Beaulieu, nephews, Colton and Arlin, niece Makayla, and special friends, Lauren Zegarac and Marina Kesteris.
Grayson is joined by his grandmother, Elisabeth Sweeting, who passed shortly after him on May 17, 2023.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 at 1:30 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St., Winnipeg. Those attending are invited to share their special Grayson memories.

Grayson was loved by many…forever in our hearts.

Unexpectedly on May 6, 2023, Grayson Richard Parris passed away at the age of 43.
Grayson was predeceased by his Grandmother (Nan) who was a huge influence in his early life.
Margaret and I have wonderful memories of the good times we shared at the Trailer Park in Beausejour with Grayson and Andrea.
Later in life Grayson struggled with addictions and made some bad choices. Despite this he was always a kind hearted person with a big heart.

A day won't go by when

we don't think of you.
Rest in peace son.
