Ronald E. Shaw, 76, of Lacon, died on November 24, 2016 at Proctor Hospital in Peoria. Born to the late Eugene and Mae Wishall Shaw, he married Sandy Hill on August 12, 1962 in Lacon.

Ron spent his career as a truck body repair man working for companies such as East Peoria Autobody and Koch Motor Sales. Later he work at ITI Caterpillar for a period. In retirement, caring for the lawn at the Lacon Cemetery became a passion of Ron's.

He enjoyed woodworking, car racing of any kind, being a Cubs fan, and fishing with his father-in-law, "Budd". Watching old westerns on TV was a way to relax at the end of the day. Ron's pet names for Sandy were "Sweet Pea" or "Stinky".

Ron is survived by his wife Sandra of Lacon, brother Robert (Rosalie) Shaw of Chillicothe, nephews Ernest Shaw of Elkhart and Steven Shaw of Morton, and many cousins. He was also preceded in death by his son Daniel Eugene.
