Alexander Shaw
1938-2021
It is with much love and deep sorrow that we announce the
passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather and brother Alexander
Shaw, 82 of West Bay Centre, which occurred on Tuesday, July 27, 2021,
in Strait Richmond Hospital, Evanston, surrounded by his loving
family. He was a son of the late John Dan and
Elizabeth (Clarke) Shaw
Dad had tremendous work ethic and worked many jobs over the
years, but his true passion was lumbering. He started
working at a very young age and one of his favorite places was in the
woods working side by side with his brother Jackie.
Whether it was using the power saw, driving the pulp truck or sawing
with the numerous sawmills he owned over the years.
Dad loved fiddle music and he and Mom could be found at many
concerts throughout the year. He even loved playing the
fiddle for his own enjoyment. He had an avid interest in
news and loved watching and reading about local Cape Breton
history and Celtic music.
Dad enjoyed talking with people and knew so many to stop and
chat with and loved having company. For the last few years,
he looked forward to our annual “Mountain Do”. He
had a remarkable memory and loved telling stories of the past
and friends he grew up and worked with over the years.
Alex is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Florence
(MacRae) Shaw; daughters, Connie (Robert) Calder, St.
George’s Channel; Jean (Gilles) Joyce, Dundee and Sondra
(Bradley) Malcolm, Kempt Road; son, Daniel
(Ashley), Antigonish; grandchildren, Mathew and Braedon
Calder, Kathryn Joyce, Andrew and Jacob Malcolm, Tori, Chase and
Jackie Shaw; sister, Christine MacKay, West Bay; sisters-in-law,
Gladys Shaw, West Bay and Colleen MacRae, Dundee and
brother-in-law, Duncan (Debbie) MacRae, Dundee; and numerous
nieces and nephews. Besides his parents Alex was predeceased
by his sister, Miriam MacRae; brother, Jackie Shaw; brother-in-law,
Allan MacKay; sister-in-law, Mabel (Arthur) Fougere and
brother-in-law, Henry MacRae.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to
Strait Richmond Palliative Care, Home Support Nurses and Caregivers
and the Staff at Strait Richmond hospital.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will take
place 2-8 p.m. on Sunday, August 1 in Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home,
Port Hawkesbury. A private family funeral service will be
held. Burial will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be
made to the Diabetic Association, Strait Richmond Palliative Care
Society or the charity of one’s
choice.
