Sheldon served as scoutmaster in Fargo North Dakota, and had taken his scouts to Cross Lake, in Manitoba, Canada. They were out on the lake when a storm came up. It capsized the boat. Sheldon dove under the boat to save his boys. The wind blew so hard that they couldn't hear each other yelling. The wind actually blew the boys to shore and they were rescued, but Sheldon went under the water and drown. His body was recovered a couple of weeks later, as I recall. Two of his sons were on that trip, but were safe. We received a call early in the morning the next day telling us that he was missing and presumed drown, it was his mother calling. She had had a witness that he was gone.
