Harvey Shaw at the wheel of the USS Kwajalein, 1944
Just received word that this handsome sailor died October 7. Harvey Shaw was a kind and gentle man who dropped out of high school during WWII and enlisted in the US Navey because he liked to swim!
He was proud to have served his country, but even prouder of his 64-year marriage to his wife, Bonnie and of their six children.
Rest in peace, Harvey. Thank you for your service and for sharing your story with me.
