Charles Homer Shelton

March 22, 1927 ~ April 19, 2019 (age 92)

Charles H. Shelton, formerly of Bay Village, passed away due to complications of Parkinson’s disease Friday, April 19, 2019 at Friendship Village Columbus. 

He was born March 22, 1927 and grew up in Wakeman, Ohio.  After graduating from Denison University he taught English at Rocky River High School.  Charles loved raising his four children in Bay Village and truly enjoyed working with his students.

Retirement opened a new phase in Charles’ life where he discovered new interests, including running, biking, global travel and volunteering.

He is remembered with love by his children, Polly (Steve) Schneider of Granville, Ohio, Charles (Donna) Shelton of Phoenix Arizona, Mark (Elaine) Shelton of Huron, Ohio and Thomas (Liz) Shelton of Neptune, Florida along with eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

A private family celebration of Charles’ life will take place later in May.
