Richard Andy Shelton

March 28, 1976 ~ February 9, 2024 (age 47) 47 Years Old


Richard  Andy Shelton sadly and unexpectedly passed away in his home at the young age of 47 on February 9, 2024. Rick was born in Michigan, raised in Alabama and was the third  of five children born to Andy and Brenda Shelton.  His memory will be cherished and kept alive by his loving wife Tanya, his children Harrison (Miriah), Quinn (Carter), Aurora and Andy, grandchildren Kenzie, Will and baby girl due in August.   Also, his mother Brenda, brother Eric, sisters Kim and Andrea, numerous nieces and nephews, special niece Robbie, special Auntie Mama Peggy, his buddy Dave, and of course, his beloved bulldog, Hank. He was preceded in death by his father Andy, sister Tracy, maternal grandparents Richard and Robbie as well as paternal grandparents Andy and Argie. Rick’s life was rich with hobbies that spoke of his love for the great outdoors.  He loved to camp, fish, and just breathe in the ​country air.  He was a true country boy and had a thick southern accent that we all loved.  He cherished his family most of all and loved to teach his children everything and anything about the outdoors.  He also was a BBQ expert and loved to make ribs, brisket, burgers and pulled pork for anyone who asked.  He had an exceptional sense of humor and gave the special people in his life nicknames (as well as a hard time). You will be in our hearts forever, dearest Rick.  We love you. At Rick’s request no funeral or services will be held but please share your memories of him on his tribute wall.
