Shelton Barstow Hoffman went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 28, 2016.

Barstow was a World War II and Korean War veteran. During this time, Barstow and his wife Virginia adopted six children, of all different nationalities. He completed high school and continued his education through college to receive his Master’s degree. With this education, he became a much beloved school teacher. His faith in God and love for the Lord led him throughout his entire life.

Barstow is survived by his sons Jim (Nancy), Jack (Lily); daughters Judy (Forrest), Jo; and daughter-in-law Cathy. Barstow was blessed to have 21 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. He also has two brothers, Rex (Jean) and Max (Donna). Barstow’s beloved wife, sister Marje, son Jerry and daughter Janice have previously gone to be with the Lord.

Barstow was very fortunate to have so many wonderful and loving friends that were like family to him. We thank the Lord for every one of them who have made his life so rich. Dad, you are loved and will be deeply missed.
