Michael Thomas Shelburg

Michael (Mike) Thomas Shelburg was born on November 17th, 1966 and went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, August 18th, 2022. Mike was married to Dayna Marie Davis on June 8th, 1991. Mike was a devoted husband, father, grandpa, son, brother, co-worker, and friend. 


He is survived by his wife, Dayna Shelburg, his daughter, Mikayla and Austin, his son Ryan and Alyah, and three grandchildren, Micah, Winston, and Everleigh, his sister Becky and other family and friends.  Mike is preceded in death by his father and Mother, Larry and Vicki Shelburg.


Mike is greatly loved and will be dearly missed by all of us; but, we take comfort in knowing that we will see him again in heaven.  


There are not enough words to describe the positive impact Mike made on everyone who knew him.  He loved life, his family and friends deeply.  Mike was a huge fan of the Chicago Cubs, Missouri State Bears, and Kansas City Chiefs! He loved to golf and go on cruises. The memories all of us have of him are priceless and will be cherished.  Mike was a ray of sunshine, emotionally supportive, sensitive, and he loved others with his whole heart. The joy and laughter he brought to all of us through the years are countless.  Mike was a follower of Christ and his light and witness shined brightly.  The love he shared with Dayna was a once in a lifetime love.  


A Celebration of Life for Michael will be held on Sunday, August 21, 2022 at the Kelby Creek Subdivision Clubhouse from 4:00-7:00 PM in Nixa.  This will be a casual, informal gathering  for friends and family where you can come and go anytime, to share your special memories, reminisce, and celebrate Mike, and a life well lived. 


To plant memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Michael Shelburg, please visit our flower store.

Dayna, Mikayla and Ryan,
Alvin and I have you in our thoughts and prayers. Mike was such a loving and funny person. He was the life of our family gatherings! Things just won\'t be the same without him. We receive the covenant promise of Eternal Life when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Because of this covenant we know that Mike is with Jesus now. We will cherish all the memories of our vacations, holidays, and family events together. We look forward to the day we get to see Mike again in glory! We\'re here for you all day or night just a phone call away! With our deepest sympathy. Love Alvin and Kim

My sweet sweet daddy. You’ll never know how much I truly loved you. I am who I am, because of you. Life will never be the same without you. You loved mom so so much and showed Ryan and I what true love really looks like. I’m so grateful for the time I did have with you, but I wish I could have so much more. I have peace in my heart knowing that I will see again one day. What a reunion that will be. I love you, daddy.

Words just aren\'t enough when it comes to the loss of Mike. He will always be remembered as funny, loving, sweet, kind hearted. He just made you feel special when you were around him. God gained a real special man in Heaven. Their are so many good memories I couldn\'t choose. But I\'ll never forget our family cruises as my favorite. Our family is so blessed to have had big vacations together and have all these wonderful memories. And Mike was always a big part. He is truly missed. Love you uncle Mike. I\'m so sorry that you have to live without him Aunt Dayna. I can\'t even imagine. I look forward to seeing him in heaven. I bet he will be part of the welcoming Committee. I can hear him already \"oh this place is awesome!\"
