So sorry to hear about Uncle Larry. I'm writing this for my dad, Chester Shepherd, Larry,s brother. My dad loved Larry so much. My dad just told me today that him and Larry were planning a fishing trip and didn't get the chance to go. My dad will miss him dearly. Thoughts and prayers for the Shepherd family.

When I heard this sad news, I was in disbelief. Larry was like a father to me, especially when he lived in Florida. He would always include me and Shannon (she was age 3 or so) in fishing trips they would take. He looked after me even though he did not have too. He would always ask me if I was okay. And later in years, when he came back to Florida to fish, he was so fun to be around. He tried to teach me how to play cards. I lost in the card games a lot. I sure loved him so much. I will miss him. And Larry being the mayor of Farmer's Station?????????? Is that true?

I was not real close with uncle Larry, but have fond memories of him when I was a child. he had an infectious smile and a laugh all his own. he would come over on his motorcycle and pop wheelies and us girls always thought that was so cool. Im sorry we didnt keep in touch more. he always called dad Swissy and dad called him possum.The last time I saw him was at dads funeral. so sorry for your loss. Tammy

I really enjoyed Larry everytime he came by Deb's Health Den to get his usual supplements. We joked a lot and sometimes I didn't know if he was serious or not. He was a joy to have known, my sincere sympathy to the family

Loved his fish stories and the giant gourds that he so graciously gave me for the fall. He will be missed.
