Larry Shelton

Larry Shelton died peacefully on February 25, 2020 in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the age of 70 after suffering a heart attack.
Larry is survived by his wife LeeAnn Shelton of Sapulpa; their sons Chad, Seth, and Kent Shelton all of Sapulpa; grandchildren Kiddo, Honey, and Captain Shelton; first born son Ryan Shelton, his children Ericca, Hadessah, and Cassandra Leigh; mother Eunice Mobley Shelton of Sapulpa, father-in-law and mother-in-law Junior and Joan Beaver of Broken Arrow, brother and sister-in-law Ron and Laura Shelton of Sapulpa, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Lucina and Kyle Thompson of Dallas, beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephew, and many friends who are like family. He was preceded in death by his father Delmer Shelton of Sapulpa and grandparents.
Larry was born on August 30, 1949 in Sapulpa, Oklahoma to Delmer Shelton and Eunice Mobley Shelton. He graduated from Northeastern State University with a degree in Business and Art. He married LeeAnn Beaver, his best friend and running partner in 1978.
Larry had an unmatched work ethic that began in his early teens. After college he started his career in the savings and loans industry. He moved on to sales jobs and ended in the oil and gas business. He retired early due to health issues, but that did not stop him from being a highly contributing member to family and community. Larry was mechanically inclined and never found an object he could not fix. He was a people person who loved to connect with everyone he met. He had a beautiful voice that he shared in choirs and in the car during road trips with family and friends. Two life lessons Larry passed on to his sons were the importance of giving back to their community by just using what you have and finishing what you start. Larry loved God with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength. When he became a Christian he studied scripture, but more importantly he knew how to powerfully apply it to his everyday life.
A memorial service is scheduled for 2:00pm, Friday, February 28, 2020 at Traditions Funeral Chapel in Kellyville. Pastor Dale Neace and Dr. Randy Scott will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Larry’s life.
