He is being remembered as a well-known doctor and a caring man. Family and friends gathered in Lufkin to remember Dr. Bill Shelton. 

Shelton died Sunday at the age of 72. He suffered from several health problems, most recently from West Nile virus.

Shelton was instrumental in creating the Arthur Temple Senior Regional Cancer Center. Back in 1994, he also started the "Totally Awesome Fishing Adventure" benefit to help cancer patients.
