David Henry Shaw, age 81 of Jackson, passed away Saturday, April 30, 2022 at Dream Catchers Assisted Living.
David was born in Raleigh, North Carolina on January 2, 1941. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edgar Nash Shaw and Addie Tyndall Shaw and daughter Stephanie Shaw.
David was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force where he learned to become an airplane mechanic; he later put those skills to use as a mechanic for Delta Airlines. John Wayne was his hero; he was always calling people “Pilgrim” and asking if they knew who said “That’ll be the day!” His favorite answer when asked how he was doing was “Fine as frog hair!”
