Derek R. Shaw, age 69, of Tomahawk, WI, passed away on Thursday, November 8, 2018, surrounded by his loving family and friends under the care of Ascension Health at Home – Ministry Home Care. Derek was born in Ashton-under-Lyne, England, on February 23, 1949, to the late Roy and Iris (Turton) Shaw. He was married to Cynthia Hall on October 19, 1990; she survives.
