Bill Loyd Shaw

COFFEEVILLE – Bill Loyd Shaw, 63, of Coffeeville, passed away Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at his residence. Born September 18, 1958, he was a son of the late Bill and Lucy Ann Farmer Shaw

Bill Loyd worked as a carpenter most of his working life and honorably served our country in the US Navy.  He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing at every opportunity.  He also possessed a green thumb and enjoyed growing a vegetable garden every year.  A devoted Christian, Bill Loyd was a Presbyterian and loved the Lord with all of his heart.  While his passing leaves a hole in the hearts of those that knew and loved him, we find comfort in knowing he is at peace and free of pain and sickness.  This is not goodbye, but “see you later.”

Memorial service plans are private. Arrangements were entrusted to McKibben and Guinn Funeral Service.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Brenda Shaw of Coffeeville; a daughter, Kristy Ingram (Michael) of Coffeeville; three sons, Jeramy Mooney (Alisha) of Grenada, Jason Mooney (Amanda) of Grenada and Adam Boyle (Candy) of Water Valley; a sister, Shula Shaw Cangelosi (Russ) of Memphis; 16 grandchildren, Ashton, Wesley, Cody, Haydn, Hunt, Kylee, Halston, Jasee, Jewels, Wyatt, Nolan, Jon Waylin, Reed, Kara, Carson and Case; and four great-grandchildren, Lorelei, Jaimsey, Logan and Callie.

He was preceded in death by his parents. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to St. Jude’s.
