My thoughts and prayers to the Shaw family. I haven't seen Bobby in many years but always considered him a friend. I met him in the Jaycees and he was always willing to help everyone out, had great ideas for projects, and was always smiling. He was a very special person who touched many lives. You will be missed my friend. R.I.P.

My condolences to the entire Shaw family. Bobby and his brother Billy were coaches in the Mansfield little league and my older brother Steve played for them. I can remember going up to the games and seeing how much fun they were having. Great memories. Rest in peace Bobby and thank you for your service to the country as well as your community.

#7 Peter A. Brown 2017-06-21 15:03
I'm very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I didn't realize that he was in failing health. I was a down-the-street neighbor in the early 1970's. We walked to school together many days. I fondly recall our visits to Cuneo's store, Saturday night cribbage games, Bob's quick wit, sense of humor, and love of kids. All God's best to his family. May he rest in peace.
