George C. Shackelfor was born in Norfolk Virginia on July 18. 1936 and paseed away at Three Rivers Community Hospital Hospital on April 21, 2010.
George was my dad. Many Knew him As "Curt" for most of his life. My dad served his country in the Army. He was Medically discharged from the Army due to Blown ear drums from running over a land mine. After the Army he became a truck driver. He drpve truck for 55 years.
After he retired he did many little businesses. He owned sports card shop and he loved to open the cads more then he did saling them.
My Dad was admitted to the Hospital due to what they thought might be the beginning of Phonmonia. Later they said it was a charlie horsein the chest. On the day he was to go hom the Dr. found him in his room unconscious. They say they do not know how he got this way. They faided to call my mom and let her know they were moving him to ICU. Fromm the time the Dr founnd him to the time my mom got there to pick my dad up He had been In the ICU for six hours. The story then changd again that he overdoesed hmself on medication, which i know would not be true, because my dad HATED to take medication. So we called them on that one and the only medication he had in his possession was his diabetic meds. Then they told us that night that he was in Reinal Failure. They waited 12 hours to tell us this. anyhow, he was having trouble breathing so they said they were going to put a tube in for him to breathe. they did not tell my mom it was going to be life support. in the process of putting this in my dad coded. The Dr. said he felt bad and wanted to continue with putting in the tube. when all was said and done with the tube they told us he was without ocygen for 5 minutes in actually was 7 minutes. I knew from that point on my dad was not coming home from the hospital. On the 21 st of April they said things were getting worse ao we as a family decided to turn the machine off. Oh his death certificate they put Brain injury. At this point we are having a lawyer look at all the medical Records.
I know he is up there looking out for me and his unborn grandchild.

Dad, I love and Miss you alot.
