Shaw was best known for his relationship with William Randolph Hearst’s granddaughter. She made headlines in the 1970s for her kidnapping by a left-wing group and her later imprisonment for bank robbery.

The couple were married in 1979, after Patty Hearst’s release from a 22-month sentence.

Shaw worked at Hearst Corp. for three decades.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports he is survived by his wife, Patty Hearst Shaw, four children and granddaughter.
