Sheldon moved to Grande Prairie over 20 years ago, and in that time has graced the lives of countless people in the community. He brought with him his children Codi and Janessa, and their mother Tanya. Sheldon left behind a big family back home in New Brunswick, but gained even more family in Alberta.

Sheldon is remembered by his two children, Codi, and Janessa (Jesse), and their two boys Ezra and Silas, who were Sheldon’s pride and joy.
