Shea Alan Culver was born December 15, 1986, in Andrews, and grew up in Eunice and Odessa. He was a beautiful happy boy, was and always will be his mama's baby. He loved playing with his brother, school, playing football and baseball, and country life, riding horses, planting gardens, and raising chickens. He was a healthy seventh grader when his life turned upside down and he was diagnosed with leukemia. He battled it with a strong will, a great doctor, and three years of treatment, and achieved full remission. He was able to return to school and graduated from Richard Milburn Academy and attended Odessa College. He enjoyed working outdoors in the oilfield and learned diesel mechanics from his dad. His greatest pride and joy in life were his sons, Lane and Jackson. He will be forever loved and missed.
Funeral will be held at 10 o'clock Saturday at Crossroads Fellowship with Pastor Griffin Jones officiating. Graveside service will be held at 4 o'clock Saturday at Brazos Valley Cemetery outside Aspermont with Pastor Eric Lankford officiating.
