About Robert Edward Shepard

My father told me that when he was young, when school was out for the summer, he would kiss his mother goodbye, and hop a train and go to Nantasket Beach for the summer and sometimes live with an aunt and somtimes sleep on the beach and work for money, he was 8! He taught me to fix things, to ride a bike, to knit, how to plant corn with herring for fertilizer, told me that we had Micmac blood in us. He used to go fishing with a bow and arrow in the Taunton River near our house, he used to slide down Jenkins Hill (Plymouth St) in Bridgewater when he was a kid. He loved to travel, and fish, buy and sell antique glass, parties with his family (any reason). He worked sometimes 3 jobs to provide for his family. unfortunately, we lost him at the age of 72, to Mesothelioma, asbestos poisoning. He was a strong, proud man, and was kind and loved by everyone he met. He was a typical Frenchman, loved ALL women, any size, and talk, talk , talk.
