Michael Dean Shaw, of Holt, Florida, was born Sept. 6, 1955, and passed away Oct. 10, 2016. A painter by trade, Michael's painting career began at age 4 when he covered his little brother, Phillip (now deceased) from his diapers up to his face in green tempera paint. That was more fun than painting on the easel his mother had set up for him. Those mourning Michael's passing include his children, Joseph (Tiffany), of Destin, Florida, Alicia Rae Blackburn (Adam), of Denver, Colorado, and Joshua of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania; grandchildren, Skylar and Silas of Destin; Marianne Pennington, his partner of 24 years; sisters, Della Goodson (Jake), Sarah Gilbert (Randy) and Anna Nicole Johnson (Tommy); his brother, Stephen (Gina); and his mother, Faye Shaw, of Holt. Michael's extended family of several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends will remember him fondly for the many little joys he brought to their lives; including his love of music, his piano skills, pictures of wildflowers and little items he gave them - secured as a result of his fondness of shopping at yard sales. A memorial service will be held 5 p.m. Nov. 2 at the Community of Christ, 398 First St., Crestview. Sign the guestbook and offer condolences at http://obits.crestviewbulletin.com.
