George Clark Shelburne Jr., 85, of Versailles, formerly Stanford, died peacefully on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at the Thomson Hood Veteran’s Center in Wilmore, with his family at his side. Born on Feb. 24, 1935, “Clark” was a proud Marine Corp veteran who loved to tell stories about his military experience. An avid sportsman/outdoorsman, Clark shared his passions with friends and family. He was always happy to gin up a fishing trip or a drive out to Utah to “climb” rocks in his jeep. Clark and his loving wife of 27 years, Ann, enjoyed pontooning on Lake Cumberland and attending UK ballgames. Clark was a UK graduate and worked as a regional manager for Cowden Manufacturing Company. Always thrifty, he loved to fix things himself and kept many cars going way past any reasonable mileage point. Although his last few years were limited by Alzheimer’s disease, he had a long, full life. He is survived by his wife, Ann Crain Shelburne, Versailles; his children and grandchildren, Lori Shelburne (Liam and Luke Allen), Lexington and Joseph Shelburne (Ethan, Jackson and Aiden Shelburne), Stanford; his stepchildren and granddaughter, Natalie Sea Burger (Ellie Ann Burger) and Eric Sea, both of Bozeman, Montana; his brother and sister-in-law, Ben and Bev Crain, Versailles; and his lifelong best friend, Stuart Brown Sr., Versailles. Clark was preceded in death by his parents, Kathryne “Kitty” Wash Shelburne and George Clark Shelburne Sr.; and his sister, Emily (Bill) Shelburne Jackson. A private burial will be held at Camp Nelson with a celebration of life to follow at a later date. Clark Funeral Home, Rose Hill, was in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Versailles Presbyterian Church or to the Alzheimer’s Association; alz.org.
