Grigoriy Shabashevich

March 17, 1955 - May 19, 2023

Grigoriy Shabashevich, a beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and grandfather, passed away on Friday, May 19, 2023, in Portland, Oregon due to medical complications—he was 68.


Grigoriy’s departure has left a void in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.


He was born on March 17, 1955, in Gomel, Belarus, to Khava and Arkady Shabashevich. In Gomel, Grigoriy lived the first half of his life where he served in the Soviet army and subsequently started a family.


In 1991, Grigoriy embarked on a new chapter in his life, immigrating to America alongside his wife, Vera, and their son, Roman. Through hard work and determination, they built a life in Beaverton, Oregon filled with many cherished memories.


Grigoriy’s wife and devoted partner, Vera Shabashevich, will profoundly mourn his loss, as she unwaveringly stood by his side through the most joyous and the most challenging times of his life. Their connection will forever remain unbreakable.


Grigoriy took great pride in watching Roman flourish and become a remarkable individual while carrying on his father’s legacy and starting a loving family of his own.


Grigoriy was preceded in death by his parents, Khava and Arkady Shabashevich. Their guidance and unconditional love played an integral role in shaping the compassionate, jovial, and kind-hearted man he became.


The legacy of Grigoriy’s love and warmth lives on, not only through his wife and son but through his two beloved grandchildren, Ari and Eva Shabashevich. He cherished every moment spent with them, embracing his new role as grandfather, offering support and endless affection.


Grigoriy will also be survived by his two brothers, Marat and Michael Shabashevich. They shared a bond created by a lifetime of unique experiences, and their memories of Grigoriy will forever hold a special place in their hearts as they navigate this difficult time.


Additionally, Grigoriy is survived by his loyal dog, Luna, who loved him unconditionally.


The Shabashevich family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the overwhelming support, thoughts, and prayers received during this challenging time.


Grigoriy Shabashevich will be remembered as a devoted family man and a source of inspiration. His legacy will forever live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him. May his soul find eternal peace.


In honor of Grigoriy’s life, a memorial service will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, at Ahavai Sholom Cemetery in Portland, Oregon at 1pm. All are welcome to attend.
