He was a caring and wonderful brother and uncle. He was a good person, honest and kind to all. He served as a USMC security guard on the USS Randolph (CV-15). Kenny retired from Bethlehem Steel Corp. in 1992. He was a lifetime hunter and fisherman. He earned The Triple Trophy Award in 1994, turkey, bear and buck. His church was the mountains, but he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He loved and respected nature and the outdoors. He was a member of NRA, Sportsmen Club, and VFW. Kenny, don't wait at Heaven's Gate for us, go in and celebrate with Jesus, Mom, Dad, and other family members. At Kenny's request, there will be no viewing or service. At a later date, his ashes will be scattered in the mountains. Henderson Funeral Home-East Hills, 2503 Bedford St., is serving the Shaw family.
