James Michael Shepherd
West Valley City-James Michael Shepherd, beloved son of Jim and Dianne Davis Shepherd passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 25, 2005, at his home in West Valley City. He was born in Salt Lake City, on July 22, 1971.
James attended schools in Kearns and received his diploma in 1989. He was employed for nearly 14 years in the construction insulation business. He took great pride in his work and always did his best. James loved camping, hiking and going full speed on his four-wheeler! His one great dream was to someday find the lost Rhoades gold mine. He spent many days exploring in caves and the Uintah mountains. We believe James has found his gold in heaven. Most of all James dearly loved his family and every minute he spent with them. He also loved his "pupperdogs," his yellow lab, Sandy and his Sheltie collie, Apache. James was a kind and generous man. He had a special way of lifting your spirits with his wit, his great smile and his "big James" hugs.
He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
James is survived by his parents Jim and Dianne, Erda; sister Marcy and her husband Bill, Ivins; nephew, Garrett Thompson who he loved so dearly.
Preceded in death by his grandparents Burton (Peewee) and Shirley Davis, Helper; Bob and Marylou Shepherd, Pocatello, Idaho.
