Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry for this loss of a great guy. He will be missed by many. Sending comfort and peace to Betty, Ted, and Tom. As well as Leslie Conner and Nacio.
    Todd and Kristine Gwartney

  2. Mr. Shepard was one of the most memorable teachers I ever had, both at Pleasant View Junior High School and at Pueblo County High School. He was kind and gentle, a great instructor of math and physics. I know he made a lasting impression on countless children during the course of his career. My deepest condolences to Betty, another of my favorite teachers, and his loving family.

  3. So sorry for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. Dave was my teacher at Pleasant View Middle School in the 1960’s, then a few years later moved up to County High where I was once again in his class. My friends and I loved it when he and Mis Ball were married. Then, in 1976 I enrolled my son at Baxter Elementary where Dave ended up teaching. my son’s 6th grade class. He commented that my son was the first second-generation student he had. He was a wonderful teacher, very soft-spoken and kind.

  4. Winky and family. Dave was a fine man and we always enjoyed seeing and being with him over a whole lot of years!
    This is a difficult time but your memories and faith will support you always.
    Please accept our condolences and know we are praying for you and your family.
    With love, Jerry Jones and family, Scottsdale, AZ

  6. Dave was a wonderful best friend. We have the best memories of our lives with Dave, Betty, Ted and Tom. Many many years going to Taylor park and laughing so hard we all would cry. Wish we could relive those days!
