Sheldon worked with my dad, Roy Perkins, for many years at the Northwestern Public Service Company. Sheldon was one of my dad's pallbearers and also one of my mother's, Fern Perkins. Both of them had a very high opinion of Sheldon, as did I. My mother and Sharon were good friends. I remember when Shala was born. Sheldon was a very fine man.

Uncle Shelly was one of a kind! Caring, funny, and so generous with his encouragement, time, love and support. A wonderful man with an ever-present smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye! He was such a blessing to the Bakers and has left us with so many incredible memories – fishing, hunting, bean-a-dome basketball, bad jokes, unsolicited oil changes for cars, yard polka dances and countless lessons about life, loving and living - Majeske style. It is hard not to smile and remember the laughter and joy when thinking about Uncle Shelly. What a gift and blessing to so many! Thank you, Uncle Shelly! We love you! Our love and prayers for peace and comfort to Aunt Sharon, Shala, Randy, Karlene and the entire Majeske extended family from across the miles. Love, Kevin, Kerry, Kim and Karla Baker families

I am reminded that Shelly and I planted hundreds of trees one summer while working for the State Game and Fish Dept. How appropriate to plant trees in his memory. Lyle Williamson
