David William Shea
Dec 29, 1923 – Sep 25, 2017
On September 25, 2017 David W. Shea passed away at the age of 93. Born in Tacoma WA, he proudly served his country in the United States Navy. His lifetime career was with the Railroad - the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad which later became the Burlington Northern Railroad. Dave is preceded in death by his two beloved wives - Nadine M. Shea and Barbara Cough Shea.
He asked us to pass along his final thoughts.
"I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith, and
As long as hearts remember
and hearts still care,
I do not part from those I love,
I am with them everywhere"
We will miss him very much. Please find it in your hearts to donate to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
