1944-2016
Richard D. Sheppard, son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, left us to be with his Lord in Heaven 1/2/16.

Richard was born, 12/31/44, the son of Eldon and Jane of Olathe KS.

He is survived by his brother John.

He grew up in Olathe among many aunts and uncles of the Chesney family. He was always active in many sports including his beloved tennis. Richard went on to college at K State. He pledged ATO and graduated in 1969. He married Kathy Pearce and had his son, Jeff, of Olathe.

Richard worked for IBM and held operation, management and financial positions. In 1979 he was promoted to Bloomington, MN where he met his wife of 36 years, Janice Imhoff. Their son Ryan was born in Edina, MN in 1981. In 1983, the family was transferred to Madison, WI where they had son Adam in 1983. In 1985, the family was transferred to Texas where they resided in Flower Mound.

Richard retired in 2006 and spent time golfing and being a cowboy in Whitney, TX. He lived his best life when he was a husband and dad with his kids and grandchildren. There are no words to describe the beautiful, simple, loving man who cherished his faith, family and friends. He loved all the simple things in life like sunsets and hugs.
