Richard Shelley, 62, of Martensville, SK passed away peacefully in his home after a lengthy battle against many health conditions on Friday, October 6, 2017. Richard was born on November 9, 1954 in Calgary, AB. He lived most of his life in Kamloops, BC where he met his wife Shirley. They moved to Saskatoon, SK and raised three children. Some of his most cherished moments were spending time at Big Shell Lake with his family. He enjoyed fishing, sitting by the fire and tinkering on his boat that he refused to give up on. In the winter, he loved watching his grandsons play hockey and was proud to wear his team jacket to the rink. He is survived by his wife Shirley, children; Lyle (Kelly), Leigh, Loryne (Derek) and grandchildren; Ereka, Evan and Drew. He will be greatly missed by many relatives and friends. As per his wishes, there will not be a funeral service but rather a celebration of life for the family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the MS Society, which he actively supported for his daughter-in-law. Thoughts and memories may be sent to: cherishedmemories@sasktel.net
