Harry A Shaw, Sr.
93, of 1008 Sequoia Drive, Strasburg, passed away in his home on Tuesday May 13, 2014, following a period of declining health. He was born Sept. 16, 1920, near Perry, Oklahoma, to the late Ernest and Sarah (Bradford) Kukuk. Harry moved with his family at a young age to Ohio, and was raised near Canal Lewisville. He graduated from Coshocton High School in 1938, and was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1942, at the beginning of World War II. During his service time, Harry served as an infantry medic in England, France and Belgium, and was honorably discharged in 1945 after V-E Day. He was honored for his service by being hosted on the Honor Flight to Washington DC to view the World War II Memorial, and by Community Hospice of Tuscarawas County. Following the war, Harry began study in the accounting field. In 1955, he became a Public Accountant, and became Certified in 1963, founding his own accounting practice, Harry A. Shaw, Sr. CPA, which became Shaw, Moore & Richardson, CPA's, and is now Moore & Neidenthal CPA's in north Dover. He was a lifetime member of Ohio Society of CPA's, a member of the American Institute of CPA's and was a past president of the Ohio Mid-East chapter of the National Accountants Association. Harry was also a past treasurer of the St. Jacob's Cemetery Association.
