Thomas Shaw
1941 ~ 2023
Thomas “Thom” James William John Shaw of Tofield, Alberta passed away on September 2, 2023, at the age of 82 years, following a brief battle with cancer. Despite his renowned love of a “good argument,” this proved to be one he was unable to win.
Thom, the eldest of five children, was born on April 25, 1941 in Calgary, Alberta to Edna (McGaffin) and Thomas E. Shaw. He was predeceased by his parents and siblings, Don, Trish and John, and an unnamed baby brother who died at birth.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jude; only child, Tamsin (James) McComb; two grandchildren, Endelyn and Malcolm McComb; and nephews and nieces, David Shaw, Meredith Shaw, Kristin (Eric) Hanson and Ethan Schlag.
Thom was firm in his wishes that no memorial or funeral service would be held.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Camrose & Area Animal Shelter in recognition of his affection for the motley crew of beloved pets who held an indelible place in his heart and featured prominently in some of his stories.
