Obituary for Jamieson Shawn Almond

Jamie Almond

It is with deep sadness I’m announcing the sudden passing of my eldest son Jamieson (Jamie) Shawn Almond on January 6, 2023.

He leaves to remember him; his mother Marvee Stevens, his step-dad George Stevens, sister Kim Almond, and brother Chad Stevens. His only niece Alannah Klassen, Aunts Terri C, Molly H, Margaret E, and Barbara S. Uncles Bob P, Bob C, Bill S, and Mel S.

Others also remaining to remember are his lifelong friends Lloyd Young, godchild Megan Leach and a multitude of friends from his teenage years (the “gang”) as well as far too many more for me to name.

Jamie was predeceased by his Gramma Jeanette Hay, Aunt Maggie Hay, Grandad Bob Hay, step Aunts Trudy Schlorff and Zella Cameron, step grandparents Sydney and Bernice Stevens.

Jamie’s work life started young when as an early teen he worked as a server/cook at Gondola Pizza, then while still a teen got a job at a downtown parking garage valeting fancy cars to and fro. A job much loved by the young teenage boy. Then on to Red River and carpentry which gave him his next job, that of finishing carpenter. From that it was onto sales and purchasing with industries such as: McDiarmid Lumber, Bird Building Supplies, TSG Schmidtke Millwork/North Star Gaming, New Flyer, and finally ending with Mac Don Industries as the lead Procurement Specialist for the company.
Outside of his work life Jamie had a wide array of varied interests. The most important being an avid collector of Crown Royal memorabilia – the collection had its own private room in his home. He also loved music, sports, and wood inlay art, as well as enjoying a great night out at a terrific restaurant with family or friends.

In sports he enjoyed playing baseball, fishing, bowling, and golf. He was pretty good at all of them, but he was particularly proud of being owner and President of his own slo-pitch baseball league for 5 years. He was also quick to share with anyone his knowledge of music and that he had even been a DJ as a younger man.

His joy in the wood inlay art form was spending time with his step-dad (even though they often disagreed) and being the expert on all the possible types of finishes that could be used to show off Dads art. His knowledge of all the different types of wood that were used was unending.

Jamie packed much into his shortened life span, but mostly he enjoyed what he had and sharing himself with family and friends.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to a children’s charity of one’s choice.
