He loved time with his family and friends, spending time outdoors whether he was walking his dogs or traveling. He was known as the "King of Cornhole" and always had time for a game of cribbage or euchre. Most importantly Skip loved his blended family; Skip is survived by his wife Jolene Shaw; his children Stephanie Marie Shaw of Cottonwood, AZ (fiancé Preston Maisel), Andrew Reed Shaw of Grand Rapids, MI (girlfriend Lauren McCumber), and four wonderful step children. Mother Joyce Shaw, Brothers David (Rock) Shaw and Peter Shaw. Skip was a selfless organ donor through Gift of Life Michigan. Memorials may be directed to Gift of Life Michigan or the Battle Creek Shelter.
