Grayson McNeil Shelton, 16, of Deltaville, a senior at Middlesex High School, passed away early Monday morning on January 18, 2021 at M.C.V. Hospital in Richmond. He was the owner and operator of Grayson’s Lawncare along with his best friend Austin Lundy. Grayson has been cutting grass since he was eight years old. He had a strong work ethic at a young age and never turned down the opportunity to help someone. Grayson helped his dad sell tires at Virginia Motor Speedway during the summer months.

He was a member of the Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department in Urbanna and the Briar Swamp Hunting Club. Grayson lived a life full of love, laughter, and passion for helping others. He never met a stranger and always willing to lend a helping hand. Grayson was known for his quick wit and ability to put a smile on everyone’s face he met. Despite his health conditions, Grayson enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with friends and countless conversations with his mom and dad.

Preceded in death by his grandparents, George and Diane Bowles of Fredericksburg, Grayson is survived by his parents, Mark and Susan Shelton; grandparents, Carroll and Patricia Shelton of Deltaville and David and Claudia Cooper of Boston, Massachusetts. Grayson is also survived by his uncles; Tommy Cooper (Barbara), Brent Cooper (Kyle) and Geoff Cooper; cousins, Kyle, Rachel, Elizabeth and Abigail.

A graveside service will be held 11:00 A.M. Friday, January 22nd at Hermitage Baptist Church Cemetery, Church View.

The family wants to give a special thanks to the pediatric cardiac team at M.C.V. Hospital.

Donations can be made to the Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department, P.O. Box 71, Urbanna, VA 23175.

Very sorry for your loss. Grayson sounds like a very out-going, working young man, very much to be praised. I was in the 1964 graduation class of Stafford High School. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4
