Harold was born in Chicago, IL to Harold Shelton, Sr. and Helen nee Steele Shelton, on April 16, 1950.

Harold was known as 'Chuck' in school and had graduated from McHenry High School on June 11th, 1969.

Chuck was drafted into the Army for the Viet Nam War on September 14th, 1970. He served in Germany as a Medic.

Upon his return, he got a job at the factory that his father worked, Harper Steel. He decided that this job wasn't for him and took a job as a gas meter reader as he studied to take the Civil Service Test. Chuck passed and became a mail carrier for the United States Post Office. He retired from the Schiller Park Post Office where he served for 30 years. This is where he also picked up the nickname of "STAMPS". He made friends with many people on his route as evidenced by the amount of gifts left in their mailboxes for him at holiday time.

Stamps had many interests and loved his motorcycles. From the Rat bike he took to Sturgis, to the many Harleys' he owned over the decades and then the switch to Indian in the mid 2000's. He was an active participant for various charity rides in the clubs that he was a member. Stamps loved to play games. Chess, Backgammon, Aggravation, Marbles...even made up his own marbles game, just to name a few. Stamps also loved to camp and fish at Wood Haven Lakes.

Harold was proceeded in death by his parents.

A private entombment will be at Windridge Memorial Park Cemetery in Cary, Illinois.
