Robert Allen Shaw, 68, of Ball Ground passed away Sunday, July 20, 2014.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born and raised in Georgia, Robby was a 1964 graduate of Sprayberry High School. After graduating from West Georgia College with degrees in physics and math, Robby was employed by AT&T, f/k/a Western Electric and Lucent, for more than 30 years.
Following a brief brush with retirement, his analytical mind made him well suited for the position of Manager of Financial Operations at the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, until his hobbies called for full retirement in 2013.
Robby was an avid golfer, pinball machine wizard and could make a jukebox sing. Give him a wilted stick and he would return a bountiful basket of vegetables. Tomatoes were his specialty. He often enjoyed fishing and spectator sports.
Robby leaves behind his wife, Debbie Shaw of Cumming; children, Robin A. Shaw (Joe) DiGiorgio of Odessa, Fla., T.G. (Jillian) Shaw of Cumming, Jennifer Shaw of Cumming; grandchildren, Ryan Ledbetter of Odessa, Fla., Stratton and Collier Shaw of Cumming, stepchildren, Rachel (Jason) Blackwell of Cumming and Josh Arnold of Cumming; parents, Florence and Charles Gilbert Shaw of Palmetto, Fla.; brothers, Charles Gilbert (Dona) Shaw Jr. of Clermont, Bruce Jennings Shaw of St Thomas, USVI; sister, Sadie Shaw (Mark) Palmer of Palmetto, Fla., the late Judy Shaw Blackburn (mother of Robin) and Lynn Shaw (mother of T.G. and Jennifer) of Cumming; and many other relatives also survive.
Robby's (Bob) quick wit will be missed by all.
