Sheldon's life ended tragically and far too soon on Saturday, January 5th at the age of 18. He died peacefully in hospital surrounded by his family and friends. Sheldon will be missed immensely by his mother, Angela, his dad, Don, his brother, Hayden, and his sister, Sierra-Dawn. Sheldon will be loved forever by Eva O'Grady (Nana), Beverly Simmonds (Grandma), Danny O'Grady (Poppa), and Sylvia O'Grady (Auntie Sylv). His memory will be cherished by the Simmonds family (Uncle Kirk, Auntie Kim, and Auntie Romayne), Mark Corrigan (Poppy) and family, the Grehan family (Ania, Kerry, Drew and Christina), the Guilmette family (Marta and Carl), Angela's cousins, Tesia and Chris, and close family friend, Tom. He will be missed by so many close friends, soccer teammates and coaches; too numerous to mention by name but each so dear. Sheldon's life will be celebrated with visitation at McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home, 1411 Hunt Club Road, on Thursday, January 10th from 2 - 4 p.m. and 7 - 9 p.m. The funeral will be held at Saint Patrick's Basilica, 220 Kent Street, on Friday January 11th at 10 a.m. Interment will follow at Hope Cemetery. Sheldon's wish would be to have everyone wear white to celebrate life at his funeral. In lieu of flowers, donations will be graciously accepted towards Capital United Soccer Club to give less fortunate players the opportunity to play the game that Sheldon loved so dearly.
