Don Richard Shaw

It is with extreme sadness and sorrow we announce the passing

of DON (Donald) Richard Shaw of Vernon / Kelowna. Don

was a loving and devoted father to his two children Andrew

Donald (22) of Kelowna and Meighan Elizabeth-Ann (20) of

Vancouver. Don also left his loving live-in partner, Brenda Jennings

of Vernon, B.C. Don is also survived by his mother Doris

Shaw of Aurora, Ontario, sisters Carol (Leo) of Bolton, Ontario,

Ruth (Aglo) of Bradford, Ontario, and brother Allan (Dorothy)

of Huntsville, Ontario, and by Brenda’s children Tyler (28),

Sheenah (25) and Melissa (25). Numerous loving nieces and

nephews and friends also survive Don. Don was predeceased

by his father, James Mathew Shaw in 2006. Don was born

in Vancouver, B.C. and in 1960 the family moved to Ontario.

In 1991, Don and his children spent 13yrs in Saskatoon. While

there he developed a Telecommunications company before moving

out west and settling himself and his children in Kelowna,

in 2003. He continued as a contractor with such companies

as Telus, Ledcor, & Dome. Don had a long list of activities he

extremely enjoyed including COOKING, motocross racing

(in his younger years) owning a Cascar car and music. Don

was always the life of the party, bringing together family and

friends. Don’s huge heart and acceptance for everyone he came

into contact with was beyond admirable. He was a man of

high, high integrity. He lived his life to the fullest always.

The family wishes to extend their extreme gratitude to the

Vernon Jubilee Hospital staff in the emergency ward and ICU

for their kindness and efforts.

In lieu of fl owers, donations may be made to the Canadian
