MARTIN SHEPS Passed away peacefullyon Friday, December 14, 2018, at the age of 66 years after a 12 year battle with ALS, surrounded by his family at Michael Garron Hospital (Toronto East General Hospital). Beloved son of the late Jennie and Sam Sheps. Loving husband of Susan (nee Farago), for 35 years, and caring father of David. Dear brother and brother-in-law of Allan and Lorraine, Sheldon, Pauline Sheps and Alden Dychtenberg, and Franklin Sheps and Elaine Rumanek. Caring uncle to Jordana Sheps and Kevin Greenglass, Rachel Sheps and Avi Libman, Michael, Stephen, Shira, Emily, Hannah, and Samantha. Born in Toronto in 1952, he became ahigh school teacher and had a long tenure at Malvern Collegiate Institute, passionately teaching math, science, and computers for 25 years. Another one of his great interests, aside from teaching and spending time with his family, was aviation and he would fly Cessna's whenever he got the chance. He will always be remembered for his sense of humour including his abundant puns and for his eagerness to help others. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with ALS in 2006 and became ventilator dependent in 2010, which did not stop his puns or his zeal for life. We would like to thank the staff of Michael Garron Hospital and our caregiving team for providing care and compassion and enhancing his quality of life in his last years. He will be truly missed by his family and friends. Service will be at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Avenue West (3 lights west of Dufferin) on Monday, December 17, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. Interment in the Adath Shalom section of Bathurst Lawn Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the ALS Society of Canada, 1-800-267-4257 or www.als.ca

I am very sorry for your loss. Martin and I were classmates throughout public school and high school. I remember him fondly. He and I competed maybe to much. He was a very strong character and a very kind person. I wish I new of his trials and pleased to learn of his accomplishments. An old friend-David Watts
