I was stationed in Ft Leonard, MO with Virgil (Stoney) Shaw. He was my ex husband's best man at our wedding. He had a knack for telling stories and jokes. He'd had us all in stitches! God Bless you and your family.

Virgil Alan "Stoney" Shaw. "Stoney" was a close personal friend, fellow soldier & dog handler, and a true American. There was never a dull moment anytime Stoney was around. You may be gone my friend, but you will never be forgotten.
