March 30 1985 – March 15 2021

On March 15, 2021, at the age of 35, Shaun David Booth bravely ended his fight with cancer.  Shaun battled the demon for 558 days, with his determination, strength and grace. 

Shaun was surrounded by his wife, Kelly Booth, his parents, Kevin Booth (Belinda), Carol Van Niekerk (Gord), family and friends on his last day as he continued to share messages of love throughout to all.  He was truly an inspiration and everyone around him felt the honour he had given to them.  He was predeceased by his sister Kerry Freese who was patiently waiting to welcome her brother with his new wings. 

Shaun was born in South Africa and moved to Canada in his late teens.  He was passionate about the sport of Rugby during his teenage years which he continued to play in Canada with the Wasp Rugby club in Winnipeg.  Shaun was also a proud member of the Manitoba Gun Dog Association with his field trial retrievers, Charlie and Storm.  He always made a special retrieve for his leading lady Lexi. 

While Shaun’s wings were ready, many of the people who hold Shaun in their hearts were not.  He may have been with us for 35 years, but his life was that of 1000.  The way he died, was the way he lived each day, by his own rules.   

“Nothing But Blue Skies Brother” 

A small service will be held on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021.  In lieu of flowers and gifts, donations can be made in Shaun’s name to Cancer Care Manitoba Foundation.
