                Shelby grew up in Des Moines and
was a 1998 graduate of Lincoln High School. After high school, he attended  OPCMIA Apprenticeship School. Most recently,
he worked for Casey’s General Store as a gas hauler.

                Apr. 9, 2005, Shelby was united
in marriage to Alison Vander Wilt in Sully. To this union they were blessed
with three sons: Kyler, Boston, and Merrick.

                Shelby was very close to his
family, especially his boys. They were his best friends. He loved Jeeping and
fishing with them and making them laugh. He never met a stranger and was always
willing to lend a hand. He called several of his family members and friends
every day just to chat. He was quite the story-teller, always reminiscing about
the past. While sometimes inappropriate and poorly timed, his jokes were the
best. You could always count on him for a good laugh. Shelby even played tricks
on his nurses at the hospital. Riding and working on his Jeep were his favorite
pastimes. He was a fan of the Packers, Red Sox, and Iowa Hawkeyes. Shelby was a
man of quiet faith and attended Sully Community Church. He loved giving gifts
but could never keep a secret.

                Shelby was preceded in death by
his grandparents: Earl Sr. and Myrna Agan and Mary Steinbach; and his
great-grandmother Leah Newbury. 

                Those left to cherish his memory
are: His wife Alison Agan; their sons, Kyler, Boston, and Merrick; his parents;
his grandpa, Robert Steinbach; his brother, Shane (Heather) Agan, Jude, and
Lennon; his sister, Shauna (Jeremy) Barnaskas and Leah; his parents-in-law,
Gary and Dee Vander Wilt; his sisters-in-law, Shawna and Ed Goemaat, Megan
(Adam) Pothoven, Andrew, Kathryn, and Matthew, Robin and Darin Morvant, Travis
(Tayler) Morvant and their children Dawson and Quorra, Bayley, and Maximus; his
brother-in-law, Trevor (Janae) Vander Wilt, Tyke, Sadie, Gunnar, Deacon,
