Industry veteran George Shaw passed away March 19 at his home in Macomb Township, Mich. He was 86.
Shaw, a Navy veteran of World War II, worked in the marine industry for 43 years. He served as sales manager at Gray Marine, which was later bought by Crusader Marine, and also Thermo Electron. He retired in 1988.
"He loved dealing with the people. He loved to sell," his son Thomas Shaw told Soundings Trade Only. "He met so many friends through the boating industry. He loved his job. He was very dedicated."
In addition to his son Thomas, Shaw is survived by his wife of 65 years, Agnes; his son Patrick; and his daughter Judy Sirois. He was predeceased by his daughter Nancy (John) Trobec.
The funeral is set for today in Michigan. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the family.
