Robert Lee Shaw was born July 9, 1939, to LeRoy and Hazel (Severson) Shaw in Murray County, Minnesota. He grew up attending school in Westbrook and Tracy, graduating from Tracy High School. Bob went on to work for Culligan.

At age 29, Bob moved to Mesa and then Gilbert, Arizona, where he worked as a carpenter building homes and was a skilled and entertaining bartender. Bob was baptized in Mesa as an adult and on November 20, 1971, he was united in marriage to Lois (Sandholm) Johnson. The couple made their home in Arizona until they moved back to Marshall in 2009. As Bob needed more assistance with his daily care, he moved into the Tracy Nursing Home in 2010 and then Morningside Heights Care Center in Marshall in 2014.

Bob was a member Army National Guard in Minnesota and the Elks Lodge in Arizona. He also enjoyed years of hunting deer and was an accomplished trap shooter. Bob was a jokester, witty and intelligent, he was known for his strong personality. He loved music, traveling with Lois to see many shows, and truly enjoyed just being with those he loved and watching his family grow.
