He was honorably discharged March 8,2016 as Specialist Bell, though many know him as Sergeant Bell. Sheldton was a driven professional with an unmatched work ethic. He was a devoted truck driver and most importantly a loving committed husband and FATHER. He loved music and used it as an expressive outlet and meditative escape. He was extraordinarily talented and creative and genuinely enjoyed the peace of intimacy within his home with his family. He desired to have a family of his own and that is exactly what he had. He loved his family and was devoted to his family until his very last day with them. His greatest accomplishment in life was his children. Throughout his life, many knew him as kind, loving and humble. He had God’s heart in him and was an inspiration to everyone that was connected to him. On November 7th, 2021, he accepted Jesus our Lord as his Lord and Savior, and it was the most powerful day of his entire life. He was a NEW MAN. He was happy, at peace, filled with Joy and ready to do and be a servant for our Lord.
