A graveside service will be held at Smetana Cemetery at 2:00 pm on Friday, February 22nd. Services are entrusted to Hillier Funeral Home.
Shelby was born in Orange, Texas, on November 28, 1942, to parents Shelby Banks Goodman and Mary Alice Strother Goodman. He grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, moving back to Texas in 1969.
While living in Bryan, Shelby was active with coaching youth bowling and flag football. He was often spotted at Little League baseball and soccer games as well. A retired long-haul truck driver, Shelby returned to Louisiana, living on the Sabine River in Logansport and doing what he loved, fishing. Shelby never met a stranger and was always quick to help others. His family came first and he was a doting father and Paw-Paw. Shelby was one of a kind and he will be greatly missed by those who knew him.
