Its been alot of years since I last saw Shelton, but I will always remember him in my heart, his sense of humor & smile that would make you smile back. Sorry Regina & Danny for your loss, may God's peace and strength be with you during this difficult time.

Shelton was one of the really good guys, and he will surely missed because good guys seem to be in short supply these days. Whatever you needed, it took one call to Shelton, and he took care of it. Shelton never met a stranger, and he always enjoyed a good laugh, which happened quite often when you were with him. The neighborhood will never be the same without Shelton driving his white van by the house sending a wave and a smile for everyone he passed. Shelton, you will surely be missed by all of us.
