John Shepherd, Jr. was one of my 1st cousins. His dad and my dad were brothers. When I was 12 years old, I rode with him from Morganton to Laurel Springs in Ashe county to see our grandparents. I remember John as “Tommy”. John was a “sweet “ person. I wish to extend my love and best wishes to his family members as they deal with his loss. - Doug Shepherd
