John "Jack" Benjamin Shaw

July 9, 1925 - May 3, 2023


John Benjamin ‘Jack’ Shaw was born and raised in Merritt, BC. He enlisted in the RCAF in 1943 and was posted for duty as a tail gunner on Lancaster bombers, 103 RCAF Bomber Squadron. After his discharge in 1946, Jack moved to Osoyoos having secured employment with Canada Customs at the US border. He met and married Isabelle (1927 – 2006) and raised three children; Bruce (Regena) of Kamloops; Jack (Debbie) of Calgary; Lorri (Greg) of Crowsnest Pass. He will also be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren; Kelly (Nicolas); Lonnie (Amelia); Katie (Ryan); Melia (Clayton); John, Adrian, Jason (Roseanna), and eleven great-grandchildren. Jack was the Mayor of Osoyoos for about a decade and worked on the development of many infrastructure projects Osoyoos enjoys today. He recently received a 75-year Service pin from the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 103, Osoyoos.
Jack passed peacefully, surrounded by his family, amid a grand thunderstorm on May 3, 2023. At Jack’s request, there will be no service.
