It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Shawn Sodiumglow Chomyk. Shawn was tragically killed in a car accident on Thursday, December 6th, 2012. He leaves to mourn his soul mate and the love of his life, Sheila Laroque and her family, Ken and Marion Laroque, Owen Laroque, and grandmothers, Therese Laroque and Margurite Eagleson; his mother, Brenda Hancock (Glenn Duvall), brother Devin Chomyk, grandmother Olga Wojciechowski, godfather Brian (Cathy) Wojciechowski, Rod (Diane) Wojciechowski, godmother Marlene (Henry) Lavoie as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Shawn was loved by so many! He was predeceased by his father, Don Chomyk, his stepfather, Bill Hancock, grandfather Stan Wojciechowski, grandparents Peter and Elizabeth Chomyk. Shawn was born and raised in Prince Albert and at an early age he found out that he had a deep love of music, art and cooking. He had a wide circle of wonderful friends that he kept in touch with even after he graduated and moved to Saskatoon. Shawn had many jobs but DJ'ing and VJ'ing were his passions. By doing this he stayed true to himself and was able to express his individuality. He met and fell in love with "His Sheila" and together they formed many partnerships, not only in love but in their business S&S Transportation Services. Shawn was employed with L'ecole Canadienne-Francaise School Division. While driving the children back and forth to school he was able to enjoy the sunrise and would often say "this beats a cubicle any day" while taking pictures of the beauty of the morning. He also loved to cook and was employed with Earl's Restaurant at the time of his passing. Shawn took courses on music production online through the Berklee College of Music; as well he was self taught in many programs for video production and DJ'ing. Sheila encouraged him to follow his dreams as he became more well known as "Shawn Sodiumglow Chomyk". He touched so many lives in the music industry and was well respected by all. He fulfilled his dream of playing at the "Connect Music Festival" and was inducted as a member of the Connect Tribe this summer. Also this summer was his first time at the Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo, BC. He was given the opportunity to do the video for the festival headliners on the Village Stage. He smiled about this for months. Shawn came into his own with Sheila by his side these last couple of years. He was extremely content and proud of the life he was building for them. Brenda had the opportunity in the past couple of weeks to tell Shawn how proud she was of him…hug your kids close and tell them today! We will miss him so much. Shawn and Sheila were very passionate about their support to the "White Ribbon Campaign" to end violence against women and girls, donations can be made through www.canadahelps.org. They also loved their two cats, Smuzkha and Leo. Donations may be made to Saskatoon SPCA (5028 Clarence Avenue South, Grasswood, SK S7T 1A7.
