Johnny Wayne Shelton, age 81, went to his heavenly home Wednesday, June 29, 2016.
J. Wayne was born to the late Lloyd and Stella Shelton on Dec. 2, 1934.
Blessed with a large and loving family, J. Wayne married his best friend and love of his life, Patsy Inetha Martin on Dec. 18, 1955.
Together they created an amazing love story of 61 years. One that included J. Wayne leaving Georgia at the age of 15 years old to pursue a career in California. It is there he met his forever love, Patsy Inetha. Their life went on to include many road trips, amazing memories with his family, and a love for classic cars.
J. Wayne loved his Lord, his family, and life. He leaves behind a legacy of a hardworking man who provided for and loved his family deeply. His love for Jesus was his strength, his love for life an inspiration, and his love for his family was his greatest legacy. J. Wayne will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

Wayne is survived by his wife, Patsy Inetha; daughters and sons-n-law, Karla and Rodney Dempsey, Janet and Charles Lemons, Patti and Myron Martin; grandchildren, Kellic and Nathan, Kortney and Sherri, Charlsie and Kiva, Emily, Kimberly, Caroline, and Madelyn; great-grandchildren, Nolan, Sam, and Emma Grace; sisters-n-law, Mary Ann Brunson, Audrey Martin; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
