He cut timber around Johnstown and Dilltown hills for more than 45 years. He owned and operated Sheldon Lumber Co. before his health made him stop. He also loved to hunt, but was the best outstanding trout fisherman … “the trout feared the mention of his name.” This was his No. 1 slogan for years. He will be sadly missed by his family and everyone that knew him … never forgotten. At the request of the family, visitation and funeral service will be private.
