Figuring there was not much of a future for him in professional basketball, Shelton returned home and enlisted in the Air Force, and was station at Walker Air Force Base in Roswell, New Mexico. When his time was up in 1955, he returned to Stillwater to work at the family lumber company. He would eventually take over the company from his father, and became a skilled builder and designer of houses.
He was married Marguerite Goodpaster in 1952.
