Beloved father of son Shyloh Haberman and daughter Chautelle Haberman both of Lethbridge. Shane grew up in Lethbridge and attended elementary and high school here. He played hockey, soccer, and many school sports but hockey was his first love. He played from the time he was five until Junior hockey. He was a quiet, adventurous soul who loved the outdoors, camping and scouting. The trip to Alaska with his brothers, parents and grandparents was something he always remembered. His job was to find firewood every night and he never failed to do so. He was all of seven! He was always prepared to help out his team members and his scout troops. After high school he married Sherry Moser and they had two children, Shyloh and Chautelle. While in Lethbridge he worked for Kawneer and in the late nineties he moved to Calgary and earned a degree in Electronic Engineering at DeVry College. After he received his degree all of his work projects centered around electronics. He could virtually repair anything that had electricity running through it. Shane is also survived by his father John (Rita) Haberman of Lethbridge and his mother Diana (Steve) Petrik of Coalhurst; three brothers: Albert (Sarah) and children Gabriella, Elijiah and Alexandra of Leduc; Ronald (Chelsey) and children Anderson, Cohen and Penelope of Edmonton and Timothy (Sheila) and Savannah of Calgary; four stepbrothers: Maurey (Tara) and girls Mackenzie, Jasmin and Hannah of Medicine Hat, Michael (Andrea) and Joshua of Lethbridge, Nicolas (Allison) of Lethbridge and Nathan of Calgary; one step sister, Audra (Gerald) of Goshen, Indiana.

After a courageous battle against cancer, Marcus Karpati passed away peacefully at the age of 29 years, on November 23, 2014 at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, Alberta surrounded by his family, in the arms of his loving wife. Marcus was born on August 4, 1985 in Victoria, British Columbia to Julius and Joan (Broadhead) Karpati. Marcus graduated from Spectrum Community School in Victoria in 2003. After high school, he attended Camosun College in Victoria for one year before transferring to the University of Lethbridge where he received both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education. Marcus had a passion for teaching, and he began work for the Lethbridge School District as a teacher for five years in several schools, most recently Fleetwood Bawden, before he had to take a leave due to his illness. Moving to Lethbridge allowed Marcus to not only pursue an education, but to participate in University level soccer, and he was a proud member of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorn soccer team for five years, and then went on to coach with the program. Soccer opened many doors for Marcus, and he developed many deep and lasting friendships while in the program. This is also where Marcus met his wife, Kathy. They were together for five years and married on a beautiful day in Calgary on July 27, 2013. Marcus and Kathy shared many wonderful memories in their time together and were able to find a great source of comfort and joy in those memories and in each other throughout MarcusÂ¹ battle.
Marcus is survived by his loving wife Kathy (nee: Curtis) of sixteen months; his parents Julius and Joan (Broadhead) Karpati of Calgary; his sister Sarah (Bo) Hill and nephew Brant Marcus of Calgary; his grandma Eileen Broadhead of Victoria; his papa Gyula Karpati of Victoria; his father and mother-in-law Larry and Sue Curtis of Calgary; his sister-in-law Melissa (Mark) Henderson and their children, Parker and Taylor of Lethbridge; and countless friends from all parts of MarcusÂ¹ life. MarcusÂ¹ family would like to extend a very special thank you to our oncology team led by Dr. J. Easaw at the Tom Baker Cancer Center, and the wonderful staff of Unit 46 at the Foothills Medical Centre who provided Marcus with the most amazing care during our stay.

“What though the radiance that was once so bright, be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of the glory in the flower; we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.” – William Wordsworth.
