William James ‘Bill’ Sheppard

William James “Bill” Sheppard was born Dec. 18, 1947, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to William and Marjorie Sheppard. He passed away Aug. 13, 2008, in Huntsville.

Bill retired after many years in the geographical exploration field. He enjoyed sports but all who knew him can agree that golf was truly his passion.

Bill is preceded in death by his father William Sheppard.

He is survived by his mother, Marjorie Sheppard; sons, William and wife Sheri Sheppard and their son, Adam of Houston, Texas, and Blake and wife Meredith Sheppard of Dallas, Texas; daughter, Jamie N. Sheppard of Rhode Island; brother, Tom Sheppard and sister, Diane Fischer, both from Canada; as well as countless friends, too many to mention. Bill will be deeply missed and often thought of.

A gathering of friends will be held at the Huntsville Elks Lodge, on Aug. 30 at 3 p.m.
