    Whereas, Samuel L. “Monty” Shelton was born May 24, 1921 and lived a full life until he passed away October 14, 2011; and

    Whereas, Samuel L. “Monty” Shelton married Leathie Francis Hill Shelton, who was the foundation of his being for sixty-seven years. Samuel L. “Monty” Shelton and Leathie Francis Hill Shelton shared six children, nineteen grandchildren, thirty-two great grandchildren, and ten great-great grandchildren; and

    Whereas, Samuel L. “Monty” Shelton founded Shelton Produce in 1948 and made countless trips from the Carolinas providing the residents of Kanawha County with fresh produce; and
