To the family of Ronnie Shelton. I also worked with Ronnie at Hatteras Yachts and always had the utmost respect for him. He was a good and fair supervisor who was a wonderful craftsman. Long before I worked with Ronnie, he and my dad were very good, life-long friends. I've known him since I was a little girl. My mama was also good friends with his dear wife Billie. We would sometimes go to their house while on Sunday drives. Such good times and fond memories. You all are in my prayers and I hope you will find comfort knowing Ronnie is in a glorious place with our Lord and Savior.

To the family of Mr. Ronnie Shelton
I worked at Hatteras Yachts during the time that Ronnie was the supervisor of the mill room. Ronnie was a good supervisor and cared about his workers.
I am sorry for the loss of your dad.
May the Holy Spirit be with you during this time.
