1 A Service of Remembrance Celebrating The Life Of. I n Leo. r J, d r e h p e Sh - Alpha - July 28, Omega - February 16, 2013 So we are always of good courage; we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:6-7)

2 Journey of Faith Leon I. Shepherd, Jr. was born on July 28, 1943 in San Antonio, Texas. He was the older of two sons born to the union of Leon I. Shepherd, Sr. and Jewel O Neal Shepherd. He received his formal education in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Jack Yates High School in 1961 and later attended Texas Southern University. After a brief courtship, Leon was united in Holy matrimony to Sherry Leverta Griffin on February 1, To this union of 44 years, two daughters were born - Mecole LeSharne and Monique Yvette. Leon was so proud of his family and the achievements attained by his beautiful daughters. He was a dedicated and loving husband to his wife who traveled together throughout the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. He was a loving father to his children and son-in-law of more than 10 years; and a loving Paw paw to grandchildren - Cheridyn Noel and Coy IV. Leon believed in hard work and was always respected by colleagues. He was employed with Reed Tool Company for more than 15 years, and later retired from the Houston Independent School District. Additionally, during his career, he still found the time to work for more than 20 subsequent years with Aramark Distributors at the Houston Astrodome. Leon accepted Christ at an early age during his membership at Trinity East United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. In 1978, he and his family joined Wesley Chapel AME Church under the leadership of Reverend E. E. Coates. He enjoyed being a member of the Wesley AME Men s Chorus and faithfully served on the Wesley AME Steward Board for over 30 years. In 1980, he joined the Ever Ready Lodge #506 and became a Master Mason. Leon was also an advent gardener who took great pride in his yard, vegetables, and fruit trees. However, he took equal or even greater pride as a self proclaimed pit master and delighted in watching how people savored the flavor of his most famous beef briskets. Leon entered into eternal rest on February 16, He was preceded in death by his father, Leon I. Shepherd, Sr. and leaves to cherish his memory: his devoted wife of 44 years, Sherry Shepherd; two daughters, Mecole Leverette (Coy III) and Monique Shepherd; two grandchildren, Cheridyn and Coy Leverette, IV; mother, Jewel Shepherd; one brother, Jerry Shepherd, Sr.; one surviving uncle, Winfred O Neal; mother-in-law, Ollie Chappell; two brothers-in-law, Kent Chappell and James Griffin (Cami); three sisters-in-law, Suzette Raggs (James), Vernelda Walker (O.G.), and Judy Baptist (John); Clarence Pete Batiste and a host of other cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me When I am gone, release me, let me go, I have so many things to see and do You mustn t tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you love, you can only guess, How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now it s time that I traveled on alone. So grieve a while for me if you must, Then let your grief be comforted with trust, It s only for a while that we must part, So keep the memories within your heart. And then when you must come this way alone I ll greet you with a smile and a Welcome Home. May God Bless you. Leon I. Shepherd, Jr.
