Emanuel Lionel Shaw III

Emanuel Lionel Shaw III, passed away on Saturday December 20th, 2014 in Johannesburg, South Africa at the age of 41. He was born on December 24th, 1972 in Monrovia, Liberia. He was a graduate of Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, U.S.A. and Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, where he obtained a B.Sc. in Business (Finance & Management).  Lionel, as he was affectionately called, moved to South Africa in 1997, where he resided up to the date of his demise. In 2003 he married Candice Bentley of South Africa, and together they had three children: Saweaga (11), Imani (7) and Amaru (6).

Lionel dedicated his life to his family and his business and creative pursuits. He was a lifelong student of all things spiritual and the evolution of the soul. He was a man of many talents and applied them to modelling, photography, music and other business endeavours. At the time of his death, Lionel worked as a Business Analyst with an IT firm in Johannesburg, and was the Founder and Managing Director of the luxury fragrance brand, “Menelik.” A unique soul, Lionel was always smiling and optimistic, and he treasured his friendships. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his three children and their mother Candice; his parents, Marcia Greaves Shaw and Emanuel L. Shaw II; his siblings, nieces and nephews, and the Shaw, Cooper, Greaves, and Hall families.
