Chuck Shaw passed away, aged 82 years, on August 31, 2009 at Chilliwack General Hospital following several weeks of battling pneumonia.
Chuck was born in Vancouver, July 8, 1927, but spent most of his early years in Chilliwack. As an adult he lived in the Lower Mainland, owning Chuck’s Cartage. His work took the family to Hope, where he became involved in the community with the Hope Chamber of Commerce. He returned to Chilliwack after joining the Corrections Service. When he retired from Corrections, he enjoyed travelling, fishing and was an active member of the Mt. Cheam Lions Club and the Hard of Hearing Association. He enjoyed his visits to the “Y” which he attended regularly until his illness.
