Obituary for Neil Christopher Sheldon

Neil Christopher Sheldon, age 54, died peacefully May 1, 2020, in Des Moines, Iowa. He was born December 21, 1965, the sixth son of Don and Agusta Sheldon of Percival, Iowa.

Neil will be remembered for his kindness and gentle way. He was always quick to assure “I am doing OK” when asked how things were going for him. He greeted all with a smile, and the really lucky ones got a big hug from him. For years, he delighted in playing Santa Claus at family Christmas gatherings, where he found joy in giving of himself to others. In spite of whatever physical limitations he experienced in life, there were no bounds to the goodness of his heart.

Neil always enjoyed food. Trips to a McDonald’s or Perkins were a big deal. He would frequently ask his sister-in-law Marcia what she was preparing for dinner, and regardless of what meal was planned, Neil would heartily and happily declare “Oh, that’s my favorite!”

He was preceded in death by his parents, Don and Agusta and brother Scott. He is survived by brothers/wives: Joel/Marcia Sheldon, Urbandale, IA; John/Janice Sheldon, Fontana, WI; Danley/Jaylene Sheldon, Summerfield, FL; Stuart/Lori Sheldon, Summerfield, Florida.

A private interment will occur at the Sidney Cemetery. The family is planning a celebration of life event for later in 2020. Contributions may be directed in Neil’s memory to Special Olympics. The Crawford-Marshall Funeral Chapel of Sidney, IA is in charge of arrangements.
