On Friday morning, September 29, 2017, at his residence in Columbia, South Carolina, God called home to rest one of his brave soldiers.

Mr. Lavern Shaw, son of the late Arthur and Margaret Shaw, was born August 25, 1956, in Williamsburg County, South Carolina. Lavern, affectionately known as “Bun”, received his formal education in the public schools of Stamford, Connecticut and Columbia, South Carolina.

He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior and was baptized at Brookland Baptist Church Northeast in Columbia.

He was a self-employed painter for 40 years. He used his talent to create beautiful, flawless work.

He also leaves to mourn his passing seven adoring grandchildren: Duane Kohn, Jr., Duante Kohn, Dalonte Kohn, Bayli Michea Aiken, Lorean Mckenzie Shaw, Zarie Young, and Zevin Young; and a host of loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, other relatives and dear friends.
