Cherished son of Brenda M. Shabatowski (nee Geikie) and of the late Joseph Roger Shabatowski.  Loving brother of James M. Shabatowski (wife Rebecca Greenan; daughters Lyra and Sophia) and Chris A. Shabatowski (wife Bailey Wright; daughter Arlyn).    Lovingly remembered by his grandmother Patricia M. Geikie (Bruce Switzer), grandfather, Michael Shabatowski (Ursula Marie Hollett)
