1. Personal and Family Life
Shelby Stanga was born in Louisiana to American parents. He grew up and attended the local school of Louisiana. Due to the poor financial condition, his mother forced him to drop out school when he was in grade 9.
Stanga is married to his wife Donna who is Jehovah’s Witnesses. It has been more than 15 years they are together and saving the vow of their marriage. The couples love to the deepest and care a lot about likes and dislikes of one another.
In one episode of Ax Men, Stanga tried hard to catch crawfish for their 14th anniversary because Donna loves them. Though his two days off from swamp logging, he couldn’t catch a single crawfish and gifted 14 inexplicable swamp flowers to his wife. And, during lunch, warned her not to touch food after touching those poisonous flowers. Donna explained that day as, ‘just another day in paradise rather than their anniversary’.
