Wilson, Shon Lee

March 29, 1987 – November 12, 2018
at the age of 31 years

Shon Lee Wilson, age 31, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 12, 2018 at home with his family and close friends holding him. Shon was born in Port Alberni, BC on March 29, 1987.  
Shon was 2 years old when his kidneys were poisoned by E. Coli causing Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (a condition caused by the abnormal destruction of red blood cells)
Shon had a kidney transplant in 2006, however it failed in 2011. This failure caused his antibody rate to increase so high that it made it near impossible to find another kidney match.  Shon and his health suffered all his life but most greatly during the last 7 years.  He now sleeps, is pain free and at peace. Thank you to Dr. Warren Bell for his incredible compassion for Shon & his family. 
Shon is survived by his daughter Eden, parents Linda Rollier & Robert Wilson, sister Chanlyn, grandparents Mary & Clarence Rollier, family closest to Shon, Aunt Lisa, Laura, Ann & Uncle Peter & Aunt Shannon and was loved by all his uncles & many cousins.  Shon’s chocolate lab Molly was by his side through thick and thin, providing constant companionship even through every dialysis session. 
Shon’s Celebration of Life was held 2 days before he died so he could say goodbye to his closest friends and family.  
Everyone is encouraged to register their decision for organ donation through register.transplant.bc.ca and/or make a donation to the Kidney Foundation.

  1. I have just seen a notice about Shon’s passing. I want to express my sincere condolences. I was a counsellor at Shuswap Jr Secondary when Shon attended that school and I spent some time talking to Shon. I know he had serious health issues at that time . I sincerely hope that in the ensuing years, he had some quality of life and had some fun. I remember him as a handsome, bright boy with considerable athletic talent. He was serious and not necessarily forthcoming about his feelings but I felt with good reason considering his health issues and his age as junior high school boys tended not to want to talk a lot about their feelings.
    I am sorry to hear of his passing.

  2. My heart has been with you through this journey he is now at peace!!

  3. Our sympathies to all of Shon’s family, His parents, and esp his Grandparents, who have been life long friends.
    We only met Shon a couple times, and he was not a well young man. WE hope he has found peace.
