Camarillo, CA

The parents of Nicholas "Nick" Shelton announce the sudden and unexpected death of their youngest son on Monday, November 19, 2018.

Nicholas was born on June 14, 1988, in Thousand Oaks, CA. The youngest child of Gary and Donna Shelton, he grew up and attended local schools. He also attended a summer semester at Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, VA, prior to his senior year at Camarillo High School.

His first job was at the Camarillo Premium Outlets, working at Balboa Beach Company and then at Eddie Bauer. From there he worked at Jersey Mike's sandwich shop both in Camarillo and in Westlake Village. Since August 2012 until the present, he worked at Channel Islands Logistics in the Oxnard industrial area performing a multitude of tasks such as lot security, shipping/receiving of imported containers and IT support.

Always an avid reader, Nick's part time attendance at Ventura Community College and especially taking classes in world history fostered his interest further in military history, religion, and society - so much so that he worked over the course of several years on a historical novel of his own. Other interests included poetry, music, Xbox gaming with a network that spans far and wide, but most near and dear to his heart were his family and lifelong friends. His school friends, his work friends, his neighbors, his martial arts instructor Master Eddie, his U.S. Army recruiter, his regular fast-food favorite stops crews, his siblings, his niece, his aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents - all played a part in enriching his life, challenging him, inspiring him and sharing so many good times and everyday kindnesses with him - we, his family, are ever so grateful to each and every one of you.

He was welcomed into Heaven by his great-grandmother "Honey", his great aunt Alma, his great uncle Howard "H.D. the ex-PFC", his aunt Joann and his fraternal grandfather "Papa Earl".

He is survived by his parents, Gary and Donna Shelton of Camarillo, CA, his sister, Kristin Shelton (Naro Hewitt) of Stephenson, VA, his niece/little buddy Olivia Hewitt of Stephenson, VA, his brother, Nathan Shelton (Alyssa Mikut) of San Diego, CA, his cat, Oliver, who is despondent without him, and his dog, Sheila. He also leaves behind aunts, uncles, two grandmothers and one grandfather, his cousins and the shared enjoyment of salmon fishing on the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon.

A celebration of Nicholas's life will be held Friday, November 30, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at Padre Serra Parish located at 5205 Upland Road in Camarillo.
