It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Shawn Cameron Sutherland at the age of 43, on Feb. 11, 2024.

His parents were overjoyed at his birth on Aug. 4, 1980, in Wainwright, Alta. Shawn grew up exploring many interests and eventually moved to Rocky Mountain House. When he finished high school, he decided to become a welder and graduated from the welding program at Red Deer College. Shawn worked in Rocky, Grande Prairie, back to Rocky and wherever his job took him.

He is survived by his mom Sandra Rathwell, stepfather Lyle Rathwell, father Cam Sutherland, sister Casandra Booth, special sister/niece Sarah Sutherland, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, special friends Devonee Lake, Kadence Lake, Chris and Tiffany Stewart and many other good friends.

Shawn will be remembered for his sense of humour, love of music and art. He will be greatly missed.

A funeral service for Shawn was held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024, at the Covenant Christian Reformed Church in Rocky Mountain House (beside Pine Grove Cemetery).
