George was most passionate about loving his family and people experiencing the love & healing from Jesus Christ. He never met a stranger! A true hero, our Dad Commander George Shaw, US Navy (Ret.) served in the Korean War and loved his country, the United States of America! A great advocate of education and music, he started the Peggy M. Spence Endowed Piano Scholarship at the University of Central Oklahoma as well as donating a Steinway grand piano. His heart was for everyone to have a bright and happy future. He loved to fly, read a library of books, drive his fast cars, enjoy a fine martini and watch a good game of sports. He was always a gentleman; charming, kind, wise, gracious and so generous.
He was full of life & wonder and his eyes always sparkled with joy! We will miss him so but all of Heaven rejoices as one of Father God’s favorites has returned Home.
