  3. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Fred. I grew up in Woodbridge and went to school with his son Rick. In Maine, I include among my good friends Fred\’s cousin George McKiernan and George\’s wife Shirley. My thoughts are with all the Shepherd family at this time.

  4. Many condolences on the lost of your father. I knew Fred at Beecher Road School. We shared my short talks about the music of the 40\’s. He knew I loved Glen Miller and the Andrew Sisters. He gave me several tapes he made from his orginal recordings. The children who road his bus loved him. He will be missed by many.

  5. My deepest sympathy to all who knew, loved and cared for Mr Shepherd. The experiences of his life gave him the wisdom that he was willing to share with those of us wise enough to listen. I hope I listened enough…. May the pain in our hearts be comforted by knowing that his soul is at rest and in peace. He will be truely missed.
