On Monday, July 25th, 2022, our beloved Laine passed away at the age of 30 years in Cochrane, AB. Laine was a sensitive and quick-witted young man with diverse interests and passions. Throughout his life he excelled at sports, particularly soccer and running track, but most recently pickleball. A passionate cook and photographer, his love of artistic pursuits lead him to learn the banjo. On Friday nights he could be found playing board games and video games with close friends.
Born July 3rd, 1992, he was the eldest child of Darren & Lorelei, and big brother to Reece. He was the first grandchild of Ernie & Eileen Stefanyshyn of Springside, SK, and Gerald & Pat Henshaw of Calgary, AB. Adventurous and daring, he enjoyed growing up with many cousins in Alberta and Saskatchewan. He was a gifted student, graduating from John G. Diefenbaker High School in 2010 and from SAIT with a diploma in Engineering Technology in 2017.
An insightful listener, Laine touched the hearts of those he encountered on his arduous journey. For his sense of humor, intellect, loyalty, and compassion he will be dearly missed; may his influence never be forgotten.
