I've known Mr. Shamlian since the mid 1980's, when he had my son in his troop at St. Charles. This wonderful man was such a great example to my son, and I/we have been close friends with him ever since. He was also a great influence to myself, as a man of true faith, honestly, the highest integrity, and a true, dear friend. I will miss him greatly! He always insisted I call him Fred, since we were only 20 years apart in age. I respected this man so much, he was always Mr.Shamlian to me. Rest in peace my friend.... Richly deserved!

Farewell Mr Shamlian, one of the most decent and genuine people I’ve met, and was lucky enough to have as an influence growing up in Troop 266. He spent many Friday nights and camping weekends teaching us scouting, respect for nature and good citizenry. He shared his appreciation of nature and outdoor skills, but also coached and guided. I am thankful for those times and know that Mr Shamlian will be remembered fondly. Rest In Peace, fair winds and following seas.

I too remember well Mr Fred Shamilian, he was a great person and Scout Leader, I had 2 Sons who he guided thru Scouting and with his help guided one onto getting Eagle Scout. I also spent camping 🏕 trips with him and my son’s. He was a great and caring man, may he Rest In Peace and in God’s hands. 🙏

I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Shamlian's passing. Two of my sons were members of scout troop 266 at St. Charles Borromeo Church, and occasionally I would go on camping trips with them to help out. We learned a lot about camping and about life in general from Mr. Shamlian. One thing he always stressed was to leave the camp site better than you found it, and I know my sons and I practice that rule even today. Thank you Mr. Shamlian and rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
