Obituary for Harold Douglas Shelton

Harold D. Shelton passed away on Sunday, July 21, 2019. He was born in Ringgold, VA., March 31, 1938 and was the son of the late Stonewall D. Shelton and Agnes Wood Shelton.

The family moved to Blairs, VA. in 1949. On June 2, 1963 he married Mary Ann Crawford and two years later they were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Susan Marie.

Harold is survived by his wife of 56 years, their daughter Susan DeHart (Tommy) of Hobart, IN.; three grandchildren and their children, Chris Beck (Angie), Caroline and Catherine Beck, all of Alpharetta, GA., Joseph Beck (Anne) of Hixson, TN. And Carley Ford of Orlando, FL.; a sister, Betty Alderson of Danville, VA. and several nieces and nephews.

Harold was a faithful member of Blairs Baptist Church where over the years he had served as the Sunday School Director, Deacon, Usher and on the Building and Grounds Committee. He was a charter member of the Blairs Ruritan Club and the Blairs Vol. Fire and Rescue Dept. Harold loved baseball and had travelled to Atlanta and Boston ballparks, but in later years the Yankees were his team. He really enjoyed taking Chris and Joe on vacation with us. Among his and Mary Ann’s many bus trips, his favorite was Nova Scotia. He was a quiet man, loved his church, his family and working out in his building making bird houses, picnic tables and other projects. He liked having a garden and sharing it with others. His favorite hangout was Bryant Bros. and Johnson country store where he mostly listened to his friends sharing “tall tales”.

Funeral services will be held at 10:50 a.m., (because Harold never wanted to be late) Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Blairs Baptist Church, 5260 US-29 BUS, Blairs, VA 24527 with Rev. John Lester, Jr. and Dr. Charles Scearce officiating. Interment will follow at Highland Burial Park.

A visitation will be held at Blairs Baptist Church, Saturday, July 27, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. prior to the funeral. The family will receive friends at other times at the residence.
