Rcik Coor sent this message concerning Bill Sheppard’s funeral arrangements.
Hugh Madison from Moore county has informed me that funeral arrangements for Bill have been set. The family will receive friends on Sunday, December 4 from 3-5 pm at Boles Funeral Home, 425 West Pennsylvania Ave, Southern Pines, NC. The funeral service will be held on Monday at 2:00 pm at Page Memorial Methodist Church, corner of Main and Poplar, Aberdeen, NC.
It is my understanding that Bill had been in the hospital for five days and was back home. He had a restless night last night and was discovered to be unresponsive about 4 am and could not be revived. The family has indicated their wish that memorial contributions please be made to the Apiculture Science fund. Contributions can be sent to Bob Gaddis.
Let us please remember Bill as the friend and dedicated beekeeper he was and also keep those who were close to him in our thoughts and prayers,
