Ed Shellhorn died Oct. 14. A memorial service was held Oct. 17 at the Cathedral of Hope.

His life was spent committed to his family, lovingly raising five children with care and compassion.

In his career, Ed Shellhorn served as a newscast director at Channel 4 and Channel 8. But in his personal time with family, he had a passion for hiking the Canadian Rockies, the pictures he took and the campfires he built.

He is survived by his wife, Donna Young; and his children, Dana Lund-Hawkins, Robin Jones, Kristen Whisler, Heather Behlmer and Eric Shellhorn.

The family expressed gratitude for the kindness friends have shown them  in our hospice journey.
