Gregory Jay Shelden

03/27/1950 - 09/25/2014

GREGORY JAY SHELDEN, born March 27, 1950 in California, raised in South Dakota and a long time resident of Mesa Arizona passed away peacefully at home on September 25, 2014 after his courageous six year battle with cancer.

Greg was a wonderful brother, dad, grandpa, soul mate, nephew and everyone’s best friend. His countless friends were his greatest joy. He truly felt he was the luckiest guy in the world. His kindness, generosity, quick wit and unwavering loyalty were beyond compare.

Among his many talents and accomplishments as an artist and entrepreneur Greg was best known as an extraordinary musician and performer.  A two time inductee in to the South Dakota Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Cavaliers and The Ride.

Greg was preceded in death by his beloved Diane Davis, mother and father Don and Muriel Shelden. He is survived by his daughters Margaret Revette, Jennifer Yeatropoulos and Heather Davis, granddaughters Peggy and Rachel Revette, sister Peggy Feller, bother-in-law Bob Feller, nephews David Bice, Justin Bice and Jesse Feller, niece Emily Questa and special friend Flo Massaro-McCoy.

A celebration for Greg’s life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation offered to the American Cancer Society or a charity close to your heart is greatly appreciated.




  • To Mr. Sheldon’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible. At Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29 he promises there will soon be a time when there will be no more pain, sickness, or death, and we can see the loved ones we have lost again. Please accept my deepest condolences.

  • I’m Greg’s 1st cousin. He was my senior by 2 months. I have never known a kinder, more generous, more talented man than my cousin, Greg Sheldon. A bright light went out in this world when Greg passed away. He is one of a kind and Irreplaceable. Rest in peace my cousin. I know you are singing with the angels.
