It is with great sadness and a feeling of deep loss that the family announces the sudden passing of John Shrum in the arms of his wife, Stella, in Paris, France on October 7, 2015.
A loving husband, devoted father, loyal friend and dedicated worker, John displayed a joie de vivre that made others want to join with him to make the world a better and friendlier place.
A wonderful father to his children: Steven, and Jeffrey (Karin Borgersen)–semicolon– and proud grandfather of Charlotte and Jonah–semicolon– he also leaves behind two brothers: Leo, and Albert (Marie).
He was predeceased by his parents: Joseph “Jeff” and Bertha–semicolon– and brothers: Lawrence, and Edward.
Missing his kind and generous nature is a large extended family and many friends.
A Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, October 16, 2015 at St. Albert Catholic Parish, 7 St. Vital Ave., St. Albert, Alberta.
In lieu of floral tributes, donations to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation, 10985-124 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta T5M 0H9 or a charity of choice would be welcomed.
