Dr. William “Bill” Summers Shaw III, D.D.S., age 80 of Upper St. Clair, PA passed away on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Born on April 9, 1940, he was the son of the late Margaret and William S. Shaw, II.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Fred Shaw.
Bill was born and raised in East Carnegie. He graduated from Thiel College and married his high school sweetheart in 1962. He then attended Dental School at Case Western Reserve and graduated in 1966. He proudly served his country on active duty in the Air Force in Illinois before moving back home to Pittsburgh. Bill established his dental practice in Greentree and he was well loved and respected by his patients for all of his 51 years of practice. He took great pride in designing his home and his prize winning Koi pond, of which he won the Pittsburgh Garden Contest in 2008. Bill’s favorite hobbies are his cars, especially his Porsche and 280 ZX and playing golf with his friends who called him “sweet ole Bill.” He will be dearly missed by all. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
