Sheldon was born to Chester and Violet (Syverson) Holm on April 27, 1943, in Detroit Lakes, MN. He attended country school at District 99 until 8th grade. He then attended Audubon High School, graduating in 1961. He attended college at Moorhead State College, Northwestern, and Trinity Bible College. He worked at several meat processing plants during that time. He was employed with Red Owl in Moorhead in the meat department until he was drafted into the Army in 1967. He was sent to Korea returning in May of 1969.

He married Jane Noreen on June 28, 1969 in Moorhead, MN. He then returned to his Red Owl job and was transferred to Fergus Falls in 1970. He owned Tiny's Locker in Dalton, T&J Grocery in Underwood and later worked at Fergus Locker, and Otter Tail County as Emergency Manager and Safety Director retiring in 2009.

He and Jane were blessed with 2 boys, Devin and Trevor. Faith and Family were most important to him. He accepted the Lord as his savior as a young boy.
