Shawn Ian Gentry

July 8, 1969 - June 29, 2014


It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of our beloved Shawn. Shawn's greatest passion was the outdoors. He was an avid mushroom picker, enjoyed working on his cedar strip kayaks and had dreams of panning for gold.

Shawn is predeceased by his mother, Helen, and his brothers, Melvin and Rick. He is survived by his father, Gilbert; three children, Chelsea, Jordan and Melissa; three brothers, Wayne (Marilyn), Ed and Robert; and four sisters Linda (Bud), Deane (Tom), Donna (Rob) and Bonnie. He also leaves behind a large family and an abundance of friends. Shawn was loved by many and will be sadly missed.

The family would like to thank Powell River RCMP, Powell River Search and Rescue, Comox Search and Rescue, Victim Services, the SPCA and the many friends, family and volunteers for their help and support during our search effort and throughout this difficult time. There will be no service at this time, however, Shawn's family and friends will walk with him along side his favorite river to his final resting place.

Shawn, we miss you, we will be thinking of you often, and you will remain in our hearts forever.

For my friend, Shawn. Thank you for being there for me and always offering to help. Your presence is greatly missed. As mushroom picking season nears, I am reminded of you. At the lake as well. I look to the sky and hope your soul is at rest. I pray you are in the Light, and that all the shades from this life have passed away. God rest you, my friend.
