Mourning the Loss of David Shaw

It’s with immense sadness that we announce that David Shaw has passed away after fighting a private battle with cancer.

David’s larger than life presence was one that would always light up a room and fill it with kindness. He was an absolute genuine human being, father, friend, co-worker, and boss.

There will certainly never be another like him. His voice could be heard from a mile away, and his laugh was as contagious as they come. He was always more concerned with others than himself, and that showed through until the end.

He always had time to sit and talk with anyone to make sure they felt heard and understood (sometimes whether we had the time or not). He would walk in with his trademark line, “How Goes!” and ending every conversation with “All Good!”.

This loss will undoubtedly be felt throughout our industry as Dave Shaw was well known in every corner of what we do. His experience spans over 15 years as he held numerous roles in Sales, Marketing and Business Development. He served as Vice-Chairman of the IEEE Rural Electric Power Conference and, most recently, was named as Executive Vice President of Futura.

David is survived by his wife Jami and their son Kellan. His family is planning a celebration of his life in September and gathering a list of charities for donations in David’s honor in lieu of flowers. We are all fortunate to have been counted as his friends, and we will miss him terribly. Please join us in keeping his family in your prayers during this difficult time.
