Charles Timothy Shaheen passed away on October 5, 2019 at Clover House after a long battle with cancer. Charlie is survived by his wife Yvette Friesen, daughters Brittany (Brett King) and Jordanna Friesen, mother Edna Marjorie Shaheen, brothers Kim (Pam) Shaheen, Nolan Shaheen, brother in law Ken (Melanie) Friesen, nieces Keanna Friesen, Halsey (Mike Bennett), nephews Ethan, Michael (Candice), Luke (Jamie), and Cole Shaheen.  He is predeceased by his father Charles Shaheen. Charlie was born in Swift Current Union Hospital January 12, 1964. Charlie obtained his education at Waldeck, Beatty and Swift Current Comprehensive High School. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Agriculture. Charlie married Yvette Friesen February 11, 2006 at Peace Lutheran Church in Rush Lake. At this time he took on two beautiful daughters. Over the years Charlie has been employed at Bonanza as a young teenager, worked as a loan officer at the Credit Union, Crop Insurance, IPSCO, and then took over the family farm in 1998. Charlie had a love for sports including fastball (even played in New Zealand), football and hockey. Charlie took part in many triathlons, he even received his pilot's license later in his life. He also belonged to 4H and that's where he fell in love with horses and cattle. Charlie liked nothing more than entertaining people, feeding people, and playing cards while enjoying a drink with friends and family. As many of you know, Charlie was famous for never being on time, yet he always made time for anyone anywhere. Once you met Charlie you could not help but fall in love with him. He was quick to forgive and forget. Charlie loved his family and friends, his dogs and cows, pretty much any animal that existed. In lieu of flowers please donate to charity of your choice.
