Shawn Andrew (Sockeye) New

Sept. 13, 1964 – Feb. 13, 2014

It’s with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Shawn Andrew New (Sockeye).

Shawn was born Sept. 13, 1964 in Terrace BC. His life was always lived to the very fullest. Shawn could put a smile on anyone’s face and leave the taste of laughter on your lips.

On Feb. 13, 2014 Shawn peacefully passed away at the Prince George Hospital. God had decided on that day to take one of his angels home.

Shawn’s last wish was to be married to his lifelong true love Jackie and to be surrounded by his children and mother.

His last wishes were granted and witnessed by family, nurses, doctors, and aboriginal liaison. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his newlywed wife (Jackie New), mother (Ellen New), son (Terence Reid), daughter (Vanessa Reid), brother (Noel New), Nephews (Tommy Munson), (Tyler New) and many more nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins. Shawn returns to his loving sister Joanne New. His love and kindness will never be forgotten by those lucky enough to have known him. Shawn will be greatly missed, by his loving mother (Ellen New).
