Joel Shewchuk beloved husband of Colleen Shewchuk (nee Seewald) of Calgary, AB, passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at the age of 40 years.
Joel was born to parents Pat and Jay Shewchuk on January 5, 1979 in Brantford, Ontario. Joel graduated from North Park Collegiate and received a BHSc degree from the University of Western Ontario in 2002. Joel worked as a Cardiac Sonographer for Alberta Health Services since 2005.
Joel was known for his love of all things sports. An avid Bruins fan, his one wish was to see a Bruins game in Boston, a wish that was granted earlier this year, thanks to his friends at AHS.
Joel was a loving and devoted husband, father, son and brother. His loss is felt through many circles of friends and family, near and far. The only way to love him more, would be to know him longer.
