La Verne (Verne) Lowell Shepherd
April 21, 1920 - November 1, 2009
Verne went to be with the Lord on November 1, 2009, after a short bout with cancer.
He was born in Oakdale, Neb., to Lowell and Grace Shepherd. He was the first of four children, Opal, Josephine and Gwen; who all preceded him in death.
He met Helen (Betty) Patterson in Walker Mine, Calif. They were married in Reno, Nev., in July 1939. They had three children, Rose Ann, John Lowell (Jack) and Frances Ann (Fran). Betty passed away in 1980. He then married Barbara Haney who preceded him in death in March, 2009.
He is survived by Fran Payne, Bob Haney, Rick Haney, Cheryl Eaton and Lori Weston; 12 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; and seven great-great-grandchildren.
Verne had many jobs in his life time from construction to maintenance. He was a lumber truck driver and a lineman. He panned for gold, he was a welder, a carpenter. He worked on the Shasta Dam Bridge, he worked in Alaska at the Isleton AFB, an apartment building in Kodiak, he was a ditch rider for Squaw Creek, did many miscellaneous jobs in farming, etc. But his first love was at the ocean. He was a cook on a whaling ship and owned two commercial fishing boats; the Betty S. and the Colleen. He fished from the San Pablo Yacht Harbor to Newport Bay. He loved fishing and hunting and all his grandkids.
May the wind be always at your back, the sunshine warm upon you face, the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
Service will be held in Redmond at the Christian Church, 10th and Evergreen, Friday, November 6, at 11 am.
