Shepard, Paul, 56, joined our Heavenly Father on January 26, 2010. Paul was a lifelong resident of O.C. and served his community for 30 years as a Police Sergeant with Anaheim P.D. Retirement for Paul meant golden opportunities to play baseball and fish with his two young sons, Ryan and Eric, and work part-time as Lake Supervisor at Lake MissionViejo. Family time was important to Paul. Paul was a man of honor and was a great role model as a father, husband and friend. He is sorely missed.
Paul is survived by his beloved wife, Linda nee Van Eck of 17 years; his sons, Ryan 13 and Eric 7; his mother, Virginia Shepard; his loving in-laws, brother and numerous friends.
