I learned as much about hunting & trawling from this man as I did from my own daddy. He always had time to help me & my brothers work on motors, boats, anything that We'd ask him he always would take time to help. One of my dad's best friends. More memories than I can mention & all good ones. Gonna miss duck hunting w Mr. Shlelby. One of my best memories is a hunt we made in Bayou Sau on his houseboat, he smiled the whole weekend. Miss you already Shoop! God bless & watch over your family.
