It is with great sadness that the family of Howard Causby Shelley Sr. announces his passing on August 12, 2019. “Shelley” as his family fondly called him is survived by his wife Gerry Shelley, his sons Howard Causby Shelley Jr. and William Shelley. His daughter in law Teresa Shelley referred to as the daughter he never had. Shelley is also survived by his beloved grandsons Nicholas W. Shelley and Haydn B. Shelley and a granddaughter Gina M. Sgroi. Also his sister Carol Ragon.
Shelley served in the U.S. Navy. After an honorable discharge he spent his career in the Finance Industry.
In the 77 calendar years we had with him, Shelley lived 1000, he never met a stranger. Every life he touched will remember a story, a laugh that would fill the room or an act of random kindness.
Memorial services will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to:
The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America
355 Lexington Avenue, 15th Floor
New York, NY 10017
