My condolences go out to the family and long time Carolina friends Jude and Tara. Time waits on no one. Shockey was a very good and humble friend and neighbor and I will never forget him. It has been a pleasure to know all of the family beginning with Paul, Veldene, Sonny, Stevie and now Shockey. God is a good God and he makes no mistakes. We just have to make heaven our home and see them all again one day. Take care, God Bless, and if you need the Caffee family from 6th Street, just give us call or stop by. Love you all, Wendy Caffee Hairston, Charlotte Brown-Caffee, William "Turk" Hairston

My condolences to the family. Shockey was a childhood friend and I always admired his athletic ability. We played sports at the Carolina ball diamond and went to high school together. His dad, Paul, use to take us to ball games in the back of his pick-up truck. Those days were the fun days. I left Carolina, WV in 1968 but anytime I went back to visit Carolina, I drove to the ball diamond and sat there remembering the days when the field was alive with friends like Shockey. I am so sorry that Shockey is gone but his childhood friendship will always be remembered. RIP Shockey.

I will never forget him coming to the nursing home with Leroy and Huley to visit me. Made my day.
RIP dear friend
