Richard “Dickie” Don Shawgo


Richard “Dickie” Don Shawgo, 68, of Amarillo, Texas passed away on October 4, 2020 in Plano, Texas after a brief illness.

Born on September 19, 1952 to Victor Ora Shawgo and Constance W. Cambern. He graduated from Amarillo High School in 1970 and received his Business Degree from West Texas State University in Canyon, Texas. He spent the majority of his life working with computers and finished his career at AIG located here in Amarillo. Dickie could fix anything and had a project going on at all times. He loved camping, fishing, a lively poker night, listening to music “The Doors” and had fond memories of working on cars with his brother. As an avid gardener he always had tomatoes and peppers in the garden. He was a dependable tenacious Dad that always had an answer, whether that answer was right or wrong is a different story.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his stepfather Chester Park, and his grandparents.

Survivors include his children, Eric Shawgo and wife Katrina of Pflugerville, Texas, and Sarah Beth Shawgo of Amarillo, Texas; grandson, Simon Shawgo of Pflugerville, Texas; brother, Victor Wayne Shawgo and wife Mary Kaye of Amarillo, Texas; nephews and nieces; and his beloved cat, Suzie Q.

Arrangements are made by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

  1. hey “Big Guy” going back to work ar AIG will definitely not be the same without you. You were my morning coffee drinking buddy before work. I am going to miss your secret recipes you shared with me among what was growing in your garden.. and the football conversations we had and our casino stories. You were on my team from day 1 when when you started working at Aig and I knew then you would be my friend for life. your memories will remain forever in my heart.

  2. I’m so saddened to hear about Dickie Don. We all grew up going to Haddie’s and Dick’s to play poker at Christmas. Those were some really fun times. Randy Marsh, Dickie Don and I were all the same age and I always had fun hanging out with those two. It’s been a long time since I have seen Dickie Don, but seeing his pictures brought back some happy memories. So sorry to hear of his passing. He was a fun guy.
