Shayne was a kind, generous, loving man, he had a huge heart and loved deeply.  His daughter was the sunshine of his life, he loved her to the moon and back.

Shayne was extremely intelligent, and will always be remembered for his sense of humor.  He ensured his family got together often and stayed in close contact initiating once a month family dinners, as well as the annual perogie making day where he would always find a reason to run to the store getting out of some of the work.

He loved getting together with family, especially around a fire, often making people laugh; he was the life of the party!  He loved his Oilers, when they scored, or nearly scored, you could hear him cheering them on a mile away, often startling the family dog, Star!

Shayne had his Grandma Mille and his Auntie Marilyn welcoming him to his forever home.  He leaves his love in the hearts of his family: his wife Sandra and daughter Elyssa; mother Darlene; brother Derek (Sam & niece Paige); sister Michelle (Scott); Grandpa Ross; father and mother in-law Aime & Michele; sister in-law Angela (nephews Austin and Lukas and niece Izabella); along with plenty of other family who will all miss him and his beautiful loving heart and contagious laugh.

Shayne you will forever remain in our hearts, we love you.

Shayne had a love for all things technology. Gaming in his childhood sparked a lifelong passion that extended to anything with a microchip in it.  He cherished those memories and built an impressive retro collection that showcased some of his favorite moments of his childhood, and he would be beaming when he found a new item or regaled you with a story that this or that game reminded him of.  As a preteen he disassembled a radio – and his first computer – simply to see how they worked and then rebuilt them. He took this natural aptitude and interest and was able to have a successful career working within the industry he loved.  While he loved his hockey and his “geek” interests, he had a hidden talent. Those of us that were lucky enough to hear him sing can attest to the fact he was a karaoke star!  He could impress you with his talent singing Whiskey in The Jar, or combine his talent with his charisma and bust out a Twist and Shout that would want to make you do both!

Shayne’s energy and vibrancy were truly one of a kind; he was a joker, a prankster, and a natural comedian. It did not matter what you were doing or celebrating he always had either a good dad joke (that was actually funny) or the best practical joke to keep you laughing for days. Both his smile and big-hearted belly laugh were infectious which reflected the kind of man Shayne was and how easily he could brighten your day. The memories of Shayne will continue to shine down and live on with us forever and always.

 Hello out there, we’re on the air, it’s ‘Hockey Night’ tonight.
Tension grows, the whistle blows, and the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps, and the players bump, and the fans all go insane.
Someone roars, “Bobby Scores!”, at the good ol’ Hockey Game.

Oh! The good ol’ Hockey game, is the best game you can name.
And the best game you can name, is the good ol’ Hockey game.

Second Period.

Where players dash, with skates aflash, the home team trails behind.
But they grab the puck, and go bursting up, and they’re down across the line.
They storm the crease, like bumble bees, they travel like a burning flame.
We see them slide, the puck inside, it’s a one-one hockey game.

Oh! The good ol’ Hockey game, is the best game you can name.
And the best game you can name, is the good ol’ Hockey game.

Third Period. Last game of the playoff too!

Oh take me where, the hockey players, face off down the rink.
And the Stanley Cup, is all filled up, for the champs who win the drink.
Now the final flick, of a hockey stick, and the one gigantic scream.
“The puck is in! The home team wins!”, the good ol’ hockey game.


Rest in Peace Shayne, you are loved deeply and sadly missed.

This comment is very late as I only learned of this now.

Shayne and I worked right next to each other for several months at Flint Energy and I got to know him very well. He was a real mentor for me in business analysis and a good friend as well.

Shayne was a real inspiration for me as well, working his way up from help desk to director, which I only mention because it speaks to his character and determination to set goals and meet them. He was a man of character and integrity and compassion and I will miss him greatly.

I had great honor to know Shayne for few years when we both worked at Flint Energy Services Ltd (AECOM). He was great person, I am sure he was great husband and father as well. He will be missed.

Tina Golightly

I had the opportunity to work with Shayne for many years at Flint and at ATB. I’ll always remember Shayne for dedication to his work and his family.
My condolences to your family,

Shauna Robb & Doris Hollingshead

Our family is so very saddened to hear about Shayne. We have such fond memories of him from when he was little and loved him so much. Please know that we are thinking of your family during this time of grief.

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this. I had the privilege of knowing Shayne when working at Flint Energy and the opportunity to work with him on many projects. Not alone that we were office neighbors at work, Shayne and I were also lunch buddies and discussed many topics such as office politics, our careers, Oilers, Star Wars vs Star Trek, and our families. He was always supportive, trustworthy, and ultimately – a great friend.

Shayne always pushed himself in his career and I would always admire his determination to get to the next level. His attitude and his attention to detail are one of great examples which I have adopted in my own career and personal life and will never forget. I will definitely miss the check-in emails that I receive asking how I’m doing and our discussions when we get together over our dim sum lunches.

To Shayne – you will be greatly missed. I will miss our get togethers and talks ranging from the love and passion (emotional roller coaster) for the Oilers to talking about our own families and fatherhood. Stay gold my friend and rest easy. Rest in peace.

My condolence Darlene and Shane’s wife and daughter and the rest of the family. My prayers are with you. Shane was a good guy and it did make me laugh lots of times and I know Auntie Millie was there to meet him he probably got one of the biggest hugs ever

Vicki Hall

I’ve been privileged to know Shayne for 11 years since we worked together at Flint Energy Services. Shayne’s positive energy and perspective on life, his love for his family, super intellect and exceptional perceptive qualities, and care for his colleagues and the organizations he was part of made him very special.
I miss him greatly, and feel a void in my heart. The last time we spoke was in August, when he reached out with a cheery message one morning.
I am fortunate to have known Shayne.
