Sheppard, Barry Meade
Barry Sheppard, 66, of Pilot, VA, went to be with the Lord on, September 24, 2021 after a long battle with numerous health issues. He was born and raised in Alleghany Springs in which he was very proud of. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gary Reed Sheppard and Violet Rena Sheppard; sister, Karen Crawford, and brother-in-law, Marvin Orange.
He is survived in death by his wife of 47 years, Brenda Sheppard; son, Curtis Sheppard; daughters, Angela Arnold and husband Bobby, Cassandra Sheppard and partner Shannon Dalton, Melanie Sheppard, Autumn Sheppard and boyfriend Darius Wayne; grandchildren, Brady and Dylan Arnold, Alaina Womack, Coy Sheppard; siblings, Linda Orange, Brenda Lilly and husband Stephen, and twin brother Larry Sheppard and wife Barbara. Special nieces and nephews, Michelle Bender and husband Andy, Gary Sheppard and wife Jocelyn, Dakota Link and wife Kayla, Timmy Link and wife Kristal, T.W Link, Sierra Link, Jennifer and partner Nichole, and Jon Link; two aunts, Priscilla Atkinson and Ava Cox; brother-in-law, Jerry Crowford; and a very dear special friend, Robbie Saunders; as well as many special cousins.
Dad was a very hard-worker and worked very hard for his family. Whenever you visited him or seen him out and about, he would always have you laughing about something, he enjoyed NASCAR, anything and everything Chevrolet, fishing, hunting, working on cars and lawnmowers and telling you stories about his crazy experience as a wild teenager and his drag racing days.
We would like to thank everyone who prayed, sent food, and cards. Even though we are sad and this will be a rough few months ahead we are thankful Dad is now pain free and is reunited with his loved ones who are in Heaven.
Family will receive friends on Thursday, September 30, 2021 from 6-8 pm at Horne Funeral Home. Memorial Service will be held on Friday, October 1, 2021 at 11:00 am in the Horne Funeral Home Chapel. There will be no interment.
