My deepest sympathy to Nancy and the Shaw family. When I transferred from Framingham to Tarrytown Timmy always made me feel comfortable whether at the plant, in Atlanta, or the trips to Detroit for future product development. One thing that I always noticed about Timmy when anyone, no matter who or where they were, needed any kind of help Timmy would tell them "Don't worry Timmys got it. "
Thanks for being my dear, dear friend.....With Love

I feel so honored and lucky to have been able to have him in my life. You have been in my prayers daily and I am thinking of you often. Please come and visit us so we can reminisce.
With all my love,

I am so sorry to hear about Tim’s passing. 35 years ago Tim was the first person to train me on being a first line supervisor. I shared many beers at Michael’s Tavern with him getting sage advice. I am sure Tim is in heaven setting souls straight right now.

My deepest condolences to Nancy and family. I was so saddened to hear of Timmy's passing, He was a good friend and co-worker and I miss his laughter and positive attitude. We had good (and some tough) times working together, but he always saw the humor in the situation.

I know Timmy will be sorely missed and wish Nancy and family the best memories of a great guy.

My heart breaks hearing such a devastating loss. Timmy was one of nicest people I was fortunate to work with, always kind and nice to all of us. Even if it feels like a lifetime ago since we left Tarrytown, I sincerely still keep such founds memories of the wonderful people I worked with and, Timmy was just one of them. Now, with a heavy hart I have nothing but sadness hearing about his passing.
Thanks for such wonderful memories Timmy!
Keeping Shaw Family in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincerest sympathy to Nancy and the Shaw family. Timmy will always hold a very special place in my heart, as I'm sure he will for the many others whose lives he touched. Timmy was my mentor while working at the GM Tarrytown Assembly Plant, and responsible for the start of my career path in salary, giving me my first job covering him as a Manufacturing Supervisor on the Motor Line. We later worked together again in the Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Plant, on future model product. Timmy took people at work under his wing, was a great story teller, the life of the party, and made people laugh to the point of tears with his crazy, contagious laugh and sense of humor. After retirement, Timmy kept in touch with many of us, just to check in and see how we were doing, and I will miss those times and chats. Sending kind thoughts and healing prayers to Timmy's family, and especially Nancy during this difficult time. God bless.

Timmy Shaw, just hearing his name brings a smile to my face, a rush of great memories, good times shared, long hours sometimes working, often playing, but most of all laughs and love! I will miss you my friend, until we meet again, save me a seat at the rail. I love you brother!
