Pastor David Shine

Pastor David ‘Spike’ Lance Shine, age 79, passed away peacefully on Oct. 19, 2019, at the Hospice House of North Idaho. He was born on Nov. 18, 1939, in Walla Walla, Wash., to Robert and Mildred Shine. He moved to Richland, Wash., as a small child and graduated from Richland High School.

Spike graduated from college at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash., and went to work at Hanford. He then attended seminary in St. Paul, Minn. After his seminary graduation, he served as a pastor to many churches in Wisconsin, Illinois, Washington and Idaho. He served as the first Protestant Chaplain at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Wash., for many years. He retired as a pastor at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church, in St. Maries, Idaho. They moved to Coeur d’Alene in 2013.

Spike loved the Lord; he was the happiest when writing or preaching a sermon. With stronger faith than most, he was a man of few worldly wants and was generous to a fault. He was very proud of his Norwegian heritage.

Spike is survived by his wife, Golda; a son, Patrick (Linda) Shine; a daughter, Kirsten; and six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by both parents and his sister, Pamela.

Any memorial donations can be made to the Hospice House of North Idaho, 2290 W. Prairie Ave., Coeur d’Alene, ID 83815.
