Duncanville, TX – The Mayor, Council, and Staff wish to extend their condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of former Duncanville City Manager Larry Shaw, who passed away earlier this week. 

Mr. Shaw served the City of Duncanville for 26 years. He began his career as the Parks and Recreation Director, and he worked in nearly every department before eventually accepting the position of Assistant City Manager. He was appointed City Manager in 1996 and served in that role until 2001.
