After high school Shelton played football for Westminster he continued that love for football in the backyard with his boys, his buddies, family, friends, nieces, and nephews whom he loved greatly. Carri and his baby girl we’re his biggest fans. He loved to play basketball. He never hesitated when the kids asked him to join them in something they wanted to do; play games, sports, or run to the store. He was always in and always on their side. He loved them. Shelton can be remembered by his beautiful smile. A smile that lit up any room he entered. The best smile many have ever seen. He was known to be gentle, kind, and compassionate. Shelton didn’t much care what other people thought. However, he wouldn’t hesitate to help a stranger or those he loved. Shelton was a family man. He loved his lady, his daughter, the boys, his parents, family, and friends. Many people have an important role in positively impacting Shelton's life. He didn’t change regardless of his audience. He was exactly who he was. He would often say, if you’re not for us you’re against us. Shelton made everyone feel important. He stayed interested in conversations and often laughed the whole way through. He was charming, sensitive, and caring. He always stood up for his family, his squad and what Shelton thought was right. He didn’t back down period. Shelton enjoyed watching TV, to include anime with the kids, new series of shows, relaxing and being outside. He enjoyed walking the most, visiting the park, the lake, traveling, bonfires, and grilling for those he loved and cared about. Above all, Shelton cherished his daughter, his baby girl, her brothers, and his lady. He loved his parents, his siblings, his family, and his friends. Shelton will be missed by many. The loss of his life on earth makes a significant difference to those who spent the most time with him and those that loved him. Shelton will always live through his baby girl.
