It is with great sadness that we announce that Percy Shelvey passed away after a short battle with cancer. He passed peacefully early on Monday, February 26, 2024, at the age of 88.


A man of strong faith, he was looking forward to seeing heaven, being with his Lord and Saviour, and the many loved ones who had gone before him.


He will be greatly missed by his second wife, Shirley Paulsen, his children, Laurel (Charles), Todd (Mandy), and Timothy; grandchildren, Kyler (Madison), Hayley, Elissa, and Keenan; great-grandchildren, Soren and Beau; his brothers, Ernest and Roy; Shirley’s children, Heather (Jay), Jan (Randy), Karin (Curtis), and Mark (Rhonda) and her numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his first wife, Louise, his parents, three sisters, and a brother.
