Henry Shelton, advocate for the poor, remembered - Valley Breeze

Monday, October 03, 2016

Sept. 21 at the age of 86.“A former priest and inspired by the social gospel, he devoted his life to working to address the issues of poverty and injustice in the state of Rhode Island,” states the Central Falls native’s obituary.“Rhode Island has lost one of its greatest advocates for the poor and social justice,” said Attorney Gen. Peter Kilmartin, one of many officials to offer words after Shelton’s passing. “With the founding of the George Wiley Center, Henry Shelton set out to make an impact on his community by helping those in need. What he created was much more. He created a social movement and shaped important public policy in our state.”Though Shelton left the priesthood, “he continued to walk in the path of God in how he treated others,” said Kilmartin.In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Shelton’s name to the George Wiley Center, 32 East Ave., Pawtucket, RI 02860.
