SHAW, Andrew Edmund. October 30th, 1947 – October 5th, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce that, after a long and bravely fought battle with failing health, Andy passed away peacefully on Oct. 5, 2014.
A beloved husband, devoted father, loving brother and loyal friend, Andy’s memory will be cherished by his wife of 37 years, Wanda, his two children, Paul and Tina, and his brothers, David and Michael and his Mother In-Law Eileen Munn. He was predeceased by his parents Jean and Edmund. Andy was born in Tiverton, Devon and was raised and schooled in England while assisting at the family’s department store. Always adventurous, he left home at just 17 to seek a career in Canada in 1964.
With savvy business acumen, the young entrepreneur quickly found his niche selling high quality clear cedar, the world wide distributor known as Shawood Lumber. Always an avid sportsman, Andy had a passion for boats and auto racing and was a keen sports car enthusiast. He was also a rabid soccer, hockey and football fan who always enjoyed a friendly wager with his sports-loving chums. He will be sorely missed by his loving family and his many friends who cherished his loyalty and generosity. The family wishes to extend its heartfelt appreciation for all their love and support throughout his time of illness.
A celebration of Andy’s life will take place on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014 at 12 PM – 3PM at Hazelmere Golf Course, 18150 – 8th Avenue Surrey. Memorial donations in Andy’s memory may be made to CH.I.L.D.Foundation.
