We Remember


With great sorrow, we announce the passing of Robert “Bob” Shabatura, age 83, born February 6, 1939, and passed away January 26, 2023. He leaves behind Eileen Shabatura, his beloved wife of more than 50 years, and their son Lance Shabatura.

Bob was born in Tuelon, Manitoba, but grew up in Red Lake, Ontario.  He worked on various jobs/locations in his career as an electrician, which eventually brought him to BC.  He was always on the go, whether it be on his motorcycle, truck, or car…rain, hail, sleet, or shine…always a social butterfly.  In retirement, he was an avid metal detector…this hobby took him all over the world from Canada to England and Australia.  He was a welcome member of the Okanagan Treasure Hunters Club where he could showcase his Hunt Findings (priceless or not, they were all invaluable to him).  He will be loved and missed by all he crossed paths with.

Bob will be remembered individually by family and friends, by his request no formal service will take place.
