CALLAN, Shannon Lee - Twenty-four-year-old Shannon Lee Callan, the young man who captivated hearts and inspired our community and many throughout the province during his hard-fought battle with cancer, died peacefully at his home on Wednesday, August 8, 2001 with his wife at his bedside. Shannon was born on February 27, 1977 in St. John's, Newfoundland, the only son of Cal and Josie Callan, and brother to Jackie and Shari. In 1994 the Callans moved their family to Fernie, and by this time, a tall, lean Shannon had developed into an outgoing young man with a unique sense of humour and a love of basketball. While attending Fernie Secondary he met and fell in love with Nicole Gris, and on June 3rd of this year, the high school sweethearts became husband and wife. Shannon loved horses and enjoyed working with and being a part of the Gris family summer business. As coach of the Junior Boys Basketball Team at Fernie Secondary School, he shared terrific sportsmanship and mutual respect with his players. Shannon also loved the company of others and was blessed with a natural storytelling ability that people enjoyed listening to. Despite the diagnosis of cancer he received four years ago, a strong-willed Shannon remained optimistic, vigorously pursuing treatment with Nicole, her family, and the Callans as advocates. The community responded and opened their hearts to Shannon, and he was overwhelmed by their kindness. Shannon embraced life and those he loved. His memory will comfort and sustain the family and friends who loved him in return. Shannon will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by those who survive him: his beautiful wife Nicole Gris-Callan of Hosmer; his parents: Cal and Josie Callan of Hosmer; two sisters: Jackie Jones with her husband Terry and their children Samantha and Kyle of Blaketown, Newfoundland, and Shari Callan of Hosmer; his paternal grandfather, Walter Callan of Long Cove, Newfoundland, and his maternal grandmother, Mary Jones of Bell Island, Newfoundland. Also mourning his passing is Nicole's family who loved and supported Shannon as their own: his father and mother-in-law, Rick and Shari Gris; two sisters-in-law: Tanya and Andrea Gris, and his brother-in-law Shane Gris, all of Hosmer; Nicole's paternal grandparents, Reg and Emma Gris of Sparwood, British Columbia, and her maternal grandmother and step-grandfather, Joan and Ernie Budberg of Creston, British Columbia, as well as many wonderful and supportive friends and caregivers who played such a significant role in Shannon's life. Cremation was held. A Memorial Service celebrating Shannon's life will take place at the Fernie Community Centre on Monday, August 13, 2001 with Mr. Brian Glover of the Good News Congregational Church officiating. Honorary Pallbearers will be: Cal Callan, Rick Gris, Shane Gris, Jason Pinch, Mike Rocca, and Spencer McLean. Words of remembrance will be spoken by Mr. Rick Gris and a memorial video will be presented by Mr. Pat Robertson. Should friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Shannon's name to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Brain Tumor (Medulloblastoma) Research, 1331-29th St. N.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2N 4N2, Phone (403) 670-2433.
