SHEPPARD who died January 21, 2001, at the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Janice and Paul SEALS in Ben Lomond,
California. He was 95.
Guy was born in Harrisonville, Missouri in 1905. He graduated from Mount Ayr high school in Iowa where he was captain of

He held a variety of jobs during his long life including working for the Ringgold and Clarke county Iowa engineer's
offices, International vice-president of the AFSCM Workers, grocery clerk, state hospital attendant, marshal, and security
guard. After his "retirement" he sharpened saws for 12 years.
Guy and Mary moved from Ringgold county in 1941 to Woodward and raised their four children there, always active in the
schools and their church and the Woodward Hospital and school. He was a familiar figure behind the counter in Bob's
Guy and Mary moved to California in 1962. A life-long Methodist, Guy served his beloved church family there as usher until
this last year. He will be remembered and loved as a quiet, gentle man. His family was his life. He was proud of his
children and the fact that they all had obtained degrees on their own.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Mary (DINKEL), who died in 1993. They were a team. He missed her so.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Janice and Paul SEALS of Ben Lomond, California, son Maurice of Mansfield,
