March 28, 2013. We just received the news about Shelby .Joe, Marlene and Mildred Whitfield(age 94)sends our love to you and your family. She lives with her son Joe and wife Marlene Whitfield of Neches, Texas.
Liebe Tante Lore,
zum Tode Deines lieben Ehemannes Shelby sprechen wir Dir und Deiner ganzen Familie unser tiefempfundenes Beileid aus. In besonders guter Erinnerung sind uns die Tage im Sommer 1986 geblieben, an denen wir mit Onkel Shelby durch New York streifen durften; er uns Harlem zeigte und uns zu seinem Lieblings-Italiener einlud
- ein unvergeßliches Erlebnis!
Dein Neffe Ralf und Agnes Napierski mit Roman und Gregor
I met Shelby at the 2003 AFN Reunion in Baltimore, MD. He was a wonderful talent for both AFN and audiences worldwide.
Shelby, you will be missed by many. I only knew you a short time but we shared a few good times. I will miss you along with all your friends from Donovans.
We were so very sorry to hear of Shelby's passing. We always looked for him at the Little League games. We loved his company. We always loved to talk of the games the players and strategies. He really enjoyed watching the games and cheering on the boys but especially his grandson Robert. We will miss seeing and talking with him. God Bless You All.
Steve, Heather and Michael Spino
