Shelby was born in Kitty Hawk Village and has lived and worked on the Outer Banks his entire life. Shelby, the father of 3, grandfather of 6, and great-grandfather of one, lives with his wife Bonnie in their Kitty Hawk home. He's not only a very busy family man but he's also a very busy volunteer.
After completing his education, Shelby followed his father’s lead taking up carpentry as a profession. In 1960, he started Hines’ Contracting and successfully managed it until the 1980’s when he retired.
After retiring Shelby would take an occasional carpentry job to keep busy, but he also enjoyed traveling the United States with his wife. Shelby always loved serving his community. He felt that since life had been good to him, he should give back to others. He decided to volunteer not only his time but his gift of carpentry to those in need on the Outer Banks.
Today Shelby is an Alternate Board Member chairing ICO’s Home Rehabilitation Committee. He works with the men of the Caring Hands Ministry of Duck United Methodist Church in constructing handicap ramps and doing other necessary repair work that is needed to improve the living conditions for some of our neighbors in need.
At nearly 82, he is tireless in serving and giving to others. Caring Hands of Duck United Methodist Church, like ICO, it is an ecumenical group working to serve God while helping their neighbors in need. The Outer Banks is definitely a better place because of people like Shelby Hines.
