Robert Shaw

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and friend in the comfort of his family. Robert was born in Kilsyth, Scotland and served in the S.H.A.P.E. of the British Forces based in Paris, France. After his service he enrolled at The Royal Institute of Chemistry in Glasgow, Scotland and began his chemistry career. He moved to Toronto, Canada in 1964 and continued his career until settling on Vancouver Island in 1981 and eventually working as a fine Commissionaire for the Cowichan Valley and Ladysmith areas. Among his interests were reading, gardening and lawn bowling. Robert was a gentleman and his traits were acceptance and kindness. He will be lovingly remembered by son Robert (Andrea), granddaughter Abigail, Peggie, blended family Rikki (Jim), Melissa, Dakota, Peyton and many relatives in Alberta, Ontario and the British Isles. A celebration of life will be held on May 15, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club, First St. Centennial Park, Duncan, B.C. **Please note this event is a scent free environment** Condolences may be offered at www.telfordladysmith.com
