We sadly announce the peaceful passing of Sheldon Trenholm at his residence in Kenneth E. Spencer Memorial Home on April 30, 2022. Born in Port Elgin, he was the son of the late Herbert and Grace (Fillmore) Trenholm.
Prior to his retirement, he enjoyed a 40-year career in the engineering department of NB Tel. His favourite season was summer, and he could often be found tending his garden in which he took much pride and joy. Sheldon also enjoyed hunting, fishing, country music including the fiddle. He was an award-winning bowling champion and an avid coin collector.
He is survived by his loving wife Faye (Geldart), daughter Sherry Trenholm (formerly Sparks), son Darren Trenholm, sister Donna Holmes, grandchildren Maria, David, Alexa, and Andrew, 6 great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters Josephine, Elizabeth, Rita, Vera, Nina, Josephine, Blanche, Kay, Etta, as well as his brothers Herbert, Kenneth and Chester, and his daughter-in-law Constance.
Respecting his wishes, cremation will take place at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007). A service to celebrate his life will be held on Sunday, August 7, 2022 at 1pm at St. Paul’s United Church, 404 Cleveland Ave, Riverview. The family of Sheldon Trenholm would like to thank the amazing Kenneth E. Spencer Memorial Home staff who provided endless care, compassion, and support to Sheldon the past 14 months and while he was in Palliative Care. A special thank you to Rev. Steve Berube for his spiritual guidance. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Diabetes Canada would be appreciated by his family.
