John Grenville Shepherd


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Shepherd at the age of 78 years.
John, a chemist, was born in Southampton, England. He immigrated to Canada in the 1970s and worked at Syncrude in Fort McMurray until his retirement. John’s spirituality, compassion and wisdom combined with his fine intellect were an inspiration to all who knew him. His life was a shining example of grace, dignity, perseverance, and courage. He was an amazing man.
We all have cherished memories of John. He will be dearly missed by Lana, his wife of 19 years; children, Dave (Rhiannon) and Laura (Amanda); grandchildren, Logan and Madelyn; sister Jenifer (Don); nieces and nephews, Karen (Chris), Ann, John (Lynda), Mark (Sara) and Angela (Jacob); Andrew, Philip, and Peter, as well as extended family and many friends.
A Celebration of John’s Life will be held at the Lendrum Mennonite Brethren Church, 11210 – 59 Ave NW, Edmonton, on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. with a light reception to follow.
Donations to YESS -Youth Empowerment and Support Services ( would be appreciated.
