Dustin J. Shaw

Dustin J. Shaw, 30, of Tewksbury, MA passed away unexpectedly on Friday April 15, 2022.  Dustin was born on July 24, 1991 in Leominster, MA.

Dustin grew up In Tewksbury, MA with his family where he attended public school. In 2009, Dustin graduated from Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School in Billerica, MA where he studied machining. Dustin was employed by CRMachine in Billerica, MA where he worked as a machinist.

Dustin leaves behind his fiancé Jessica Quintal and their seven-month-old daughter Maia, his mother Sandra Shaw, older brother Eric Shaw, grandfather Raymond Turcotte, nephew Jordan, niece Charlotte all of Tewksbury, MA., many aunts, uncles and cousins. Dustin also leaves behind his Godparents and their girls Chrissy, Brandi and Whitney whom he has called his sisters since he could talk. Dustin was the grandson of the late Robert W. Pysczynski of Irmo, SC. and Sandra E. Turcotte of Tewksbury, MA. who passed away in March.

Dustin had a great love for the outdoors. He would drop everything for the chance to go camping with his family or hiking in the woods with his beloved dog Jake. He loved barbeques, bonfires and working on his or anyone else’s vehicles. 

Dustin was well known for his enormous heart and listening ear… He was always the first one there to help in any situation, he’d give you the shirt off his back or the last five bucks in his wallet. He enjoyed family gatherings and was usually the first one there and the last to leave.

Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend the funeral service for Dustin, which will be held at Saint Williams Catholic Church, 1351 Main Street, Tewksbury, MA.  on Saturday, May 7, 2022, beginning at 12:00 PM.
