Mr. Shelby Paul Ladner, 63 of the Standard community, passed away Thursday at his home. Shelby was one of five children of Hollis J. & Estelle (Dedeaux) Ladner. He was born April 30, 1956 in Gulfport, and spent his entire life in the Standard community. From an early age, he had an affinity for dirt track race cars, mostly working on them but he also drove some as well. Shelby was a welder by trade, and had a small shop at his home, where he was the "community welder". Any time anyone needed anything put back together, they usually called on Shelby, and he was most happy to oblige. He also worked in shops, finishing his working career at Cuevas Machine Shop. Shelby was a goal-driven person who enjoyed helping others. A God-fearing, faithful and giving man, he rarely charged folks for the minor, odds and ends stuff he would do for them. He enjoyed family gatherings and cookouts, watching his kids and grandkids grow up. He is remembered as a determined man with a very strong will about him. A hard-working, caring, selfless father and mentor, he was filled with pride. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was preceded by his parents, Hollis J. & Estelle Ladner, and one brother, Hollis J. Ladner, Jr. Left to cherish his memories are: his children, daughters Shedette (Josh) Garcia of Perkinston, and Brandi (Rance) Smith of Kiln; and his son, Kelby (Amberly) Ladner, also of Kiln; seven grandchildren: Tristan, Joshua, and Kamin Garcia, Braxton & Kelton Ladner, and Brailey and Raven Smith; his siblings, sisters Hannah (Keith) Bilbo, Audrey Heidelberg, and Charlotte Barron, and his brothers, Tony (Deanie) Necaise and James (Diane) Necaise, along with countless extended family, friends and neighbors through the years. The family will receive friends for visitation at 1:00 PM Saturday, June 29th at Trinity Funeral Services in McHenry, with a chapel service to start at 3:00 PM. Interment will follow in the Necaise Crossing Cemetery on Earl C. Ladner Road. Trinity is honored to serve the Ladner family in their time of need, and asks everyone to keep them in their thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
