SHAW, Warren

On Sunday, May 24, 2020, Mr. Warren D. SHAW of Edmonton, AB passed away
at the age of 68 years. Liver cancer took another life too early.
Warren was born in Saint John, New Brunswick. He attended school there and
enjoyed a passion for many sports, including racquetball, baseball, soccer, and
especially golf.
While at University of New Brunswick acquiring his Bachelor of Science degree,
he worked as a golf professional at the local golf course. After graduating from
university, he caddied on the PGA tour for one year. However, he realized from
that experience that life as a golf nomad – as a pro-golfer – was not what he
wanted, so he went back to university and acquired his Bachelor of Education
degree.
Warren taught school in Saskatchewan and Alberta – he spent 43 years as a
teacher, mainly with the Edmonton Public School Board (retiring in 2019) – and
he especially enjoyed teaching students with special needs.
Warren enjoyed spending time on the golf course, looking at and researching
sport cars, and pondering investment opportunities.
Warren professed to being a follower of Jesus and enjoyed attending services at
Gateway Alliance Church (Edmonton).
Warren is lovingly remembered by his wife, Theresa (daughters Angela and
Abigal). He is survived by his brother, Garth (Knightville, NB); his sister, Carla
(Quispamsis, NB); his nephew, Jordan; and his estranged daughter, Jodie
(Cumberland House, SK).
Warren was predeceased by his parents, Adrian & Frances SHAW.
Cremation has taken place.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, a Memorial Service will be held at a
later date. If you wish to attend, please email [email protected] in order to

I team taught with Warren. It was always a lot of fun. He stayed calm in the face of any behaviour or other happenings in our classrooms. He made life better for many a former student and EA.

Gord Stretch

Warren was a great guy to work with at Vimy Ridge Academy. He always had a smile on his face, and truly knew the difference between things that matter in life, and things that don’t. I learned a lot from him.

Ted Fearey

Warren was a lot of fun and a straight up man. When I worked at Ottewell he had the monthly hot dog waiting for me when his kids went to Costco. I usually forgot but he would come and find me. I will miss him and he will be missed.

Michael Groves

Lost one of my best friends. Missing him terribly. Only God could bless anyone with a friend like Warren.
He was always there for me when I needed a friend to call on. In fact, he was always eager to help. He was truly the best boss I’ve ever had too. He always looked out for my well being.
One of my greatest joys is when he professed Christ as his Saviour. Therefore I don’t have to say goodbye for ever. See you later on the other side my true friend.

One of my fondest memories of Warren is ‘the nudge’. Many times Warren would by someone a meal, anything they wanted, because he felt a nudge. Warren had a big heart and I appreciated experiencing some experiences with him. He cared deeply for the less fortunate. One of the last things I said to him was that the world will never be the same without him. This is so true.

Eva Shaw

My fondest memory of Warren is sitting in A&W having breakfast as we often did. A gentleman entered the restaurant and I saw him coming toward Warren. I mentioned it and Warren said, yes I felt a nudge to help that man. Warren then took the man, who was homeless, up to the ordering area and told him to order whatever he wanted and Warren would pay for it. This is just one instance. This happened often and Warren always obeyed.

Loved playing golf with this gentlemen. He had a great game and was always encouraging both at golf and life. He will be sadly missed.
