What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.

He married the love of his life, Leslie Freeburg, in 1986. They celebrated their 38 years of marriage in June. They went on to have two children, Ashley Ammons and Andrew Ammons.

Shelton was a self employed entrepreneur and was able to retire at the age of 51 so he could travel the world with his wife.

Shelton was predeceased by his father, Mack Ammons. In addition to his wife, Leslie Ammons, he is survived by his mother Marie Ammons; his son, Andrew Ammons; his daughter Ashley Ammons; his grandson Noah Soliday; and his brother Blake Ammons.

Condolences to the Ammons family from Australia. I had the pleasure of meeting Shelton through our mutual interest in sports. I will miss our Facebook chats we had about everything going on in Australia 🇦🇺 and US 🇺🇸
