Sheldon was predeceased by his wife, Norma Jean (Jeannie)–semicolon– mother, Isla Gray–semicolon– stepfather, George Gray–semicolon– father, Cecil Kelly–semicolon– sister, Shirley Chorney–semicolon– and other beloved family members.
The family would like to recognize the remarkable doctors and nurses who tirelessly provided care and compassion to Sheldon above and beyond what anyone could imagine.
