Early Monday morning, on August 26th, 2019, Mark “Big Dog” Eugene Shelton, 58, of Waco, TX, took hands with our heavenly Lord whom guided him through the light to his own late father.
Mark was born April 7, 1961 in Frankfurt, Germany to Kenneth and Ingrid Shelton. There he met the love of his life, Nikola Irene, whom he has shared the last 42 years with. Mark’s larger than life personality always filled up a room. He never met a stranger, and could BS with anyone. Mark was a hardworking man, spending 10 years with Wilsonart, owner-operator of his own trucking business, car lot and detail shop. Rounding out his time with AAFES for 19 years.
Mark could grocery shop like no other. He loved a good comedy movie and the A&E network. His daughters have many memories of him bringing home the worst B+ rated movies; and of his giving up many hours in each of their extracurricular activities. Mark would bend over backwards for anyone and give it his all and he would always lend an open ear.
Mark is survived by his wife Nikola; their precious daughters and their spouses: Natali and Christian Madrigal, Kristina and Chase Zavoina, and Jessika and Brent King; as well as five grandchildren, Joaquin, Kennedy, Ingrid, Brooks and Drew. He is also survived by his mother, Ingrid Shelton; and his sister, Sissy Mynarcik and husband Louis and their two children, Nathan and Raychel Mynarcik. He was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth M. Shelton.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:30, Saturday, August 31, at Waco Memorial Park Mausoleum, 6623 South Interstate 35, with Rev. Robin Ford officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family is kindly asking for donations in this unexpected tragedy to be made through Venmo @Natali-Madrigal-17
