Shaun Tyler Harasiuk

January 11, 1984 - November 16, 2013


In the early morning hours of Saturday, November 16, 2013. Shaun Tyler Harasiuk passed away suddenly of natural causes in Cranbrook at the age of 29 years.  He was the youngest son of Audrene and Detlef Harasiuk. 

Shaun was born January 11, 1984 and grew up here in Cranbrook, BC.  His  parents raised him as a bush baby, so his love for the outdoors became his roots.  He was always exceptional in school and rarely came home with less than an A.

Shaun always lived his life to the fullest.  Everything he did, he did to the extreme, whether it was hunting, fishing, riding his motor bike or mud bogging.  He loved riding with his buddies and said he couldn't hold a candle to a few of them.  His brother Kelly said this about Shaun, “Shaun was an awesome man!  Misunderstood by most because he would red line every emotion available, such as loving, sadness, fighting, laughter and anger.”

He was always there to help a friend in need.  His dad wrote this:

“Today in tears,

I wonder why,

Why my beautiful son had to die?

His life was taken

He was yet so young

His independence had just begun.”

Shaun was predeceased by his grandfather Allen Pocha, grandmother Elva (Pocha)  Hinch, by his grandfather Alex Harasiuk and grandmother Charlotte Harasiuk; his uncles Red (Carl) Pocha, Gerald Pocha and Lloyd Pocha, his aunt Diane Bailey and his cousins Ione Clark.and Troy Hallot.

He leaves to mourn his mother and father, Audrene and Detlef Harasiuk and his brother Kelly (Chelsey) Harasiuk.  He has a very large family with many aunts, uncles and cousins.  He also has an extraordinary circle of friends and we will always miss his quick wit and his outgoing way.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Shaun's life will be held at the Dwelling Place, 2324 – 2nd St. S., Cranbrook on Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 1:30 pm.  Condolences may be left for the family at
