Tyler William Shipowich

March 27, 1981 – September 29, 2018
It is with extreme sadness to announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, father, brother and friend. Tyler is survived by his mother, Joan Plamondon (Allan), his father William Shipowich, his daughter Nevaeh and son Oleksandr, whom he loved both dearly. He is also survived by his sister Jenn Shipowich Cook (Kevin), nephews Owen and Spencer and his grandmother Alice “Baba” Shipowich. Tyler was also survived by his special ‘Earth Angel’ Jenna Fitzpatrick, his step brothers, Nicholas and Matthew Plamondon, his awesome supportive friends and his aunts, uncles and cousins.

Tyler was raised in Fruitvale and attended Montrose Elementary School and graduated from J.Lloyd Crowe High School in Trail, BC. He had a lifelong interest in Philosophy as well as current news events and world history. His greatest passion was his love of motocross. Tyler was a sensitive and kind person with a giving heart. He was adventurous and fun loving, his laugh was contagious and his sense of humour enormous.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Glenhaven Memorial Funeral Home in Vancouver. Interment will follow at a later date at the Fruitvale Cemetery where he will join his beloved Auntie Marj Mason and Uncles Barrie and Laurie Sadler.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the BCSPCA as he had a great love for dogs, especially his loving companion “Chase”.

“Be free from the stress and heartache you have endured and race the skies on your dirt bike. Rest in peace now. Never forgotten and forever loved.”
