About Michael

Mr. Sheldon was born in Petersburg, Alaska when it was a territory and then became a State. The Sheldon family history goes back for Generations in Alaska on my Mothers side. Mr. Sheldon's Father was born in Wrangell, Alaska and Michaels living Tlingit Native Mother was born in the village of Kake, Alaska. My education came from Petersburg, High School (K--12) and after High School, I attended Peninsula College in Port Angles, Washington in the early 70's. After college, Michael was called upon the Alyeska Pipeline to join the 302 Operators Engineers and worked several camps as a Mechanic and Welder on the Pipeline. After the pipeline, Michael traveled back home and purchased a Commercial Fishing boat to start his career in the fishing industry. Michael fished, throughout Southeast Alaska and Bristol Bay. Mr. Sheldon fished for 22 years as an owner-0perator of his fishing boats and retired from fishing in 1998. Michael then worked for the Alaska Marine Highway System for some time and finally settled down and began his business as a Handyman for the past ten years.
