We are saddened to announce the passing of Sam Shecapio. Mr. Shecapio was a humble man and was an encourager.

He loved being out on the land practicing the Cree way of life. He was a fishing guide for many years, he started at a very young age at Camp Louis Jolliet and Vieux Poste.

His happy place was being up the lake, that’s where his family saw him being so happy and at peace. He was born on November 28, 1951 out in the bush. He passed away on February 25, 2021 6:30 am in Montréal at the Glen Site (Montréal General Hospital).

The Celebration service will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 and more details will be shared next week.We send our deepest condolences to his wife, Elizabeth, his children, grandchildren, his family and friends from all over Eeyou Istchee and beyond. He will be deeply missed.
