Obituary for Wesley Lee Shelton

Wesley Lee Shelton, 65, went to be with his Lord and Savior on October 6, 2019 after a long, hard, courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born June 8, 1954 in Danville, VA to Geneva Hammock Shelton and the late Larry Lee Shelton.

Wesley is survived by his wife of 41 years, Kathy Gregory Shelton. He is also survived by his two beloved daughters, Kristin Shelton Willard and her husband Jordan and Lindsay Shelton Payne and her husband Seth. He also leaves behind his four precious grandchildren, Kinsley Marie Payne (his “Princess”); grandsons, Jace McCoy Payne (“Bubba”), Carter Weston Willard (“Professor”) and Caleb Gregory Willard (“Tank”). Wesley is also survived by two brothers; as well as many cousins and extended family members.

Family was the most important part of Wesley’s life. He enjoyed spoiling his family, Caribbean cruises and trips to Cherokee, where he made it known he was “making donations”. Wesley was a hard worker his entire life. He served as the Head Coach of the JV Baseball team at Tunstall High School for many years and as an assistant for the Varsity Softball team. Wesley was an avid golfer, not only loving the game but enjoyed the company of the many special friends he made on the golf course.

In addition to his father, Wesley was predeceased by his brother Pete Shelton.

Kathy and her daughters Kristin and Lindsay would like to say a special thank you to Wesley’s brother Kent and his wife Kim, for their visits and continued support during Wesley’s illness.
