Obituary

Obituary for Robert Harris Shelton

Robert "Pastor Bob" Harris Shelton, missionary, evangelist, conference speaker, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, was 91 years old when he passed into God's presence Wednesday, August 26, 2020. He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Nancy Louise Shelton; brother, Donald Shelton; and grandson, Matthew Kilgus.

He was born in Pontiac, Michigan to the late Esther Merle and Rex Horris Shelton.

He is survived by daughters, Rebecca Lyn Kilgus (Mark) and Sharon Shelton Hulcy (Brad); son, Daniel Dale Shelton (Renee); grandchildren: Kristi Easterly (Chad), Chad Hulcy (Sarah), Laura Kilgus Noe (Max), Kyle Shelton (Elyssa), and Cameron Shelton; great-grandchildren: Owen, Lily, and Brooklyn Hulcy, Kimberly, Lavender, and Israel Shelton, and Waylon Easterly; sister, Rexella Van Impe; and many friends and loved ones.

Bob loved God and he loved people. He spent his life communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who had never heard the message, and encouraged and discipled those who knew Christ. His ministry continues through his books and radio. He will be greatly missed by his family and those who knew him.

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing." - 2 Timothy 4:7-8

Funeral services will be held 11:00 AM Saturday, August 29, 2020 at Faith Baptist Church, 500 W. Lee Rd., Taylors, SC 29687; Dr. Bob Jones III to officiate. The family will receive friends and loved ones one hour prior to the funeral, beginning 10:00 AM. Burial will follow at Graceland East Memorial Park in Simpsonville.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Gospel Fellowship Association, 1809 Wade Hampton Blvd., Suite 110, Greenville, SC 29609, www.gfamissions.org.

Bob and Nan were our next door neighbors for over 30 years. They were truly God's children and glowed with his presence. We will always remember them inviting us over when Nan had made her special curry. They knew how much we loved it and enjoyed being with them.
Bob will will truly be missed by people from all over the world. He was a good man who never had a bad opinion or word to say about anyone.
Rest in peace.

Dr. and Mrs. Shelton were such gracious and faithful servants for our Heavenly Father. Dr. Shelton's ministry in teaching Bible prophecy was always very helpful and was obviously a result of his years of in-depth studies on the subject. Heaven is rejoicing that Dr. and Mrs. Shelton are there together at last, but their passing from us is a great loss. Our deepest sympathy to their loved ones.
