Kelvin Shouldice August 19, 1947 - September 3, 2020

It is with great sadness that we the family announce the passing of Kelvin Shouldice, loving husband of Vera (for 39 years), and beloved member of the Kenora community his whole life.

He left to mourn 2 daughters; Wendy Langlois (Bob Langlois, ON), Tracey Stevens of Alberta, 2 granddaughters; Shannon Dorward (Stuart Heatherington, AB), Rachelle Lillico (Logan Lillico, ON), and grandson; Dillon Stevens of Alberta. Kelvin will also be greatly missed by his 4 loving great grandsons, and 1 great granddaughter. Predeceased by his mother Evelyn Shouldice, Grandparents Annie & Joe Shouldice, 3 uncles (Lorne, Jim, frank), and many other cousins.

Being a regular comfort to the community Kelvin was often seen driving around for fun or as a taxi driver for Co-op (over 28 years); plus, he drove Truck and worked for Purse dry cleaning for many years. Towards the end of his life Kelvin loved going out and about having coffee with friends at the local subway or Husky, plus joke around with anyone nearby. His smiling face and bubbly personality will be deeply missed by all within his family and too many members of the community. A celebration of life in honor of Kelvin will be held at the beginning of October.

Due to Covid, if you would like to come to the service and pay your respects a mask or face covering must be worn at all times. Those who do not live in the same household need to be six feet apart and there is a limit of 40 family and friends that can attend this service.

The things I remember you loved most in life was to sing your songs, even the ones you couldn't remember the words to, you loved your grandchildren, the day Shannon was born you had such a glow you were the proudest granddad on earth. She was your princess, Dillon he was your boy ( Dilly) they loved going to the hockey games and football games and going for rides with grampie.
We didn't always see eye to eye, but I did have some takeaways that you taught me in life. I will never forget and always appreciate you putting the fear of God in me to never do drugs, or you would have me arrested.. I believed that. When you came into my life 43 years ago you were known as Kelvin, at the of our Journey you were the man I called dad. Keep singing those songs! Until we meet again... Tracey

You've always been a shining light in my life grampie along with Grammie. I will always cherish the many many memories we shared together over the years, but especially cruising around kenora or Edmonton depending where you lived at the time.

I could tell you anything and know you never judged, instead had a funny remark to make me smile. You will be missed deeply, but never forgotten Grampy! Love you to infity and beyond ❤️

I am sorry to read that Kelvin died. I offer my condolences to his family. Kelvin and I grew up together at various points. He was always the joker, a very positive person, friendly to others and interested in what you were doing. It was a treat to re-establish contact with when I returned to Kenora in 2003. Kelvin was a character who never left my memory over the years. I will continue to remember him.
