Justin's Story

Text size

Justin Lee Shaw of Woodward, Ok., died Friday, May 1, 2015 in Edmond, Ok., at the age of 53. Justin was born October 26, 1961 in Pampa Texas to Melvin Lee Shaw and Wynilou (Winnie) Wylie Shaw. He grew up in Woodward where he attended and graduated Woodward High School in 1980. He was probably best known for playing Santa Claus in the house on Main Street and working at the Lakeside Theaters through High School. He later became a truck driver and drove cross country with his wife of 19 years, Deborah Lynne (Kaiser) Shaw, and was also a dispatcher. Everyone who knew him, knows he was such a huge Elvis fan. I'm hoping he's getting to know him by now. He asked that you think of him anytime you should hear "My Way". Because that's exactly how he lived his life. Justin's last wishes were that we not have a funeral service for him. He wanted everyone to remember him as he was, the last time you saw him. He didn't want everyone to be sad. This year would have been his 35 year homecoming so, if you were a classmate of his, please know, he wanted to be there in person, but his spirit will just have to do. He had such a big personality and was the greatest guy you'd ever meet. His love for his family, friends and his fur babies was unending. It will continue on in our hearts forever. He is survived by his wife of the home, Deborah Lynne Shaw, mother Wynilou (Winnie) Shaw, sister Marni Jo Shaw, and nephew Caylon Lee Shaw, all of Woodward. Cousin Rex McGehee and wife Ryna and son Jason, of Baltimore, MD, step-son Jason Jalufka of Texas and daughter Lauren Jade Shaw Dixon and granddaughters CJ and Harper, all of Seiling, Ok, and many many friends. He was preceded in death by his father Melvin Lee Shaw, both maternal and paternal grandparents, step-son Kyle Jalufka and father-in-law John Kaiser.
