George Henry William Sheppard. Born 19/01/1936. A great father and husband, George passed on from us on May 8th 2010. He leaves behind a wife, Valerie, and two children, Martin and Mandy, both now married with children, and grand-children.
He was a Royal navy man from 1951-1961, and was proud to be a radar operator on board the Tyne, during the Suez crisis. He travelled the world, serving on various types of ship, in the far east and middle east.
He related stories of the sea to us right up to his death, and was never short of a captive audience.
His other love in life was his garden, and he spent many years tending his roses and many other fine plants.
He was a staunch supporter of the RNLI, and all donations from his funeral were dedicated to the Fowey lifeboat.
