Upon graduation from high school, he joined the U.S. Air Force where he retired after 22 years at the rank of Master Sergeant serving many stations stateside and in England and Spain. Post military he served many years in financial management. Family and friends remember Bobby as a gentleman who lived his faith daily through service to his church as a deacon, hospitality, and tender concern for the welfare of others. An avid arm-chair sports fan he avidly followed the Spurs and Cowboys, loved having a good time even at his own expense and made sure everyone else did also.

He is preceded in death by his parents; brothers Charles A. Shelton and Clyde L. Shelton, and sister Anne S. Ashcraft. In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorials may be made to First Baptist Church, Burnet designated for the construction of a chapel at the Women's Prison in Burnet or as a donor tribute to the Alzheimer Association. Care has been entrusted to Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet. Condolences may be offered at www.clementswilcoxburnet.com

Kevin & I counted Bobby as one of Our dearest Friends for over 30 years. We took some very special vacations with Him & Charlotte throughout the years including Cancun '87, Hawaii '96, Albuquerque & Santa Fe 2007 and visiting Them at their San Antonio, CA. & Burnet homes. There were many New Year's Eve celebrations & so many beautiful memories We four shared together. We will miss Him deeply in this world knowing full well We will see Him in the next. God speed dear Bobby, Your mission here accomplished and Your reward is now eternity with Jesus❤🙏
