Daniel Odell Sheppard
Daniel Odell Sheppard, 75, of Kensington went home to be with the Lord, Nov. 20, 2010, at home with his loving family by his side.
Born June 6, 1935, in Harlan County, KY, he was a son of the late Charlie and Lucy Sheppard.
He fought a courageous battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) to the end. He will always be remembered for his contagious smile and unending humor. He loved going to auctions and never went home empty handed. He loved his farm and his cattle. They were more than just a herd to him, they were his pets.
He retired from AWS as head supervisor of Hazard Waste and Clean Up.
He is survived by his loving and beautiful wife of 45 years, Barbara (Bell) Sheppard; sons, Daniel O. (Danna) Sheppard of Florida, Dwayne (Jennifer) Sheppard and Jimmy L. (Shanda) Sheppard, both of Kensington, and Daniel (Nicole) Sheppard of Indiana; daughters, Donna Sheppard and Wanda Sheppard, both of Kensington, Anita (Kenneth II) Morris of Beloit, Kim Sheppard of Carrollton and Johanna Green of New York; grandchildren, Amber, Jordan, Ashlee, Thomas, Jaime, Holly and Emily Sheppard, Logan Brown, Adam and Aaron Grey, Alecia Rogers, James Phillips, Addie and Kenneth III Morris, Daniel Erwin, Nicolas, Jared, and Andrew (Mandy) Button, Melinda (Michael) Bell, Amanda (Jacob) Cutting, Brenda (Jedidiah) Plesia, Shawn Lebanno Jr. and Alicia Lebanno; great grandchildren, Allen, Rachel and Tessa; four sisters and two brothers.
He was preceded in death by two sisters and two brothers.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Nov. 27 at 1 p.m. at Hanoverton Christian Church, 10251 Plymouth St., and Hanoverton, with Pastor Terry Lutz officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army or Carroll County Hospice.
