William R. Shepherd, 73, passed away on October 23, 2022. He was born on June 7, 1949 to Charles R. Shepherd and Muriel (Hengst) Shepherd in Evansville, Indiana.

Bill served his country in the United States National Guard. He retired in 2014 after many years at PPG in Evansville. In March of 1981, he met the love of his life, Terri, and within a year they got married; it was love at first sight. Together, they created a beautiful life with their children and grandchildren. In his spare time, he enjoyed working on cars and cutting grass. He loved traveling and going on vacation with his family. He was always fun loving and a jokester. Above all, Bill cherished time with his family.

Bill is survived by his wife of 40 years Terri Shepherd; children Matthew (Katie) Shepherd, Nathan (Rebecka Moore) Shepherd, Lauren (Trent) Jones; grandchildren Lawrence and Maggie; and numerous extended family and friends.
