All of us loved Jimmy for his humor and kindness. Mom and Dad appreciated that he and Geneva came to visit us no matter where we lived. Jimmy and Dad were close especially when the Shelton females (Mom, Geneva and Bette) outnumbered them on the cruise to Mexico- what fun they had that trip!

Much Love,

Nancy, Michelle, Pat and John

Brother it breaks my heart to have you leave us but I know you are going to be in good hands and no longer tormented by the disease that took control of your sweet and gentle body. I will always love my big brother. Give all our loved ones hugs for me.❤️😘

These are sad times, but I would like to share a memory that I had with my Uncle Jimmy. He took me squirrel hunting one afternoon while I was still in school at Western Kentucky. It was just me and him. I got to listen and talk to him about life, family, cars and how to find squirrels. I will always remember that day. The times we had, the knowledge he shared. I will miss you, Jimmy.
