Barry Scott Shelton

-- — Barry Scott Shelton passed from this world on the afternoon of Thursday Sept. 27, 2012. He was born in Colquitt, Ga. on July 8, 1954, the son of Harry and Hazel Shelton. He attended school in Miller County and graduated from Tallulah Falls School in 1972.

His innate talent for connecting with people led him to a career in sales with United Distributors, where he worked until his retirement in 2006. He died after a brief illness.

In 1981, Scott married Sylvia Sharon Wester, of Bainbridge. They had two children, Barry Hughes Shelton, born 1982, and Rosanna Grace Shelton, born 1986. The family lived in Hoggard Mill, Valdosta, Albany, and most recently Marietta.

Scott held a lifelong passion for the Word, which led him to be both a writer and an actor, but more importantly, a story-teller. He was also deeply immersed in the natural history and archaeology of the lower Flint River basin.

He was preceded in death by his father Harry, his mother Hazel, and his brother Terry.

He is survived by his wife and children, and his sisters Rose-Marie Friedlander and Lougene Tidwell.

A celebration of his life will take place in Baker County, Ga. on Saturday Oct. 6, 2012 at 1 p.m. Call Ivey Funeral Home for directions. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Flint Riverkeeper in Scott’s memory. — SouthCare Cremation & Funeral Society, Marietta, Ga.
