Richard J. Shaw – Dick began his journey to eternal life just before dawn on Monday, May 9, 2022. His wife and his three daughters nursed and cared for him throughout that night, and his beloved dog (and constant companion), Sadie, was at his side at the very end of his earthly life. Dick was the only child of Harold and Margaret (Whittig) Shaw, of Schuylerville, New York. Dick was born in Cambridge, New York, on July 30, 1936. He attended St. Clement’s Grammar School, and was a 1954 graduate of St. Peter’s Academy in Saratoga Springs, New York. Dick is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren and extended family.
