Anthony Quincy Shepherd was born April 6, 1963 in St. Louis, Missouri. He was one of nine children born to John and Vernice Shepherd.
Anthony professed a hope in Christ early in life. God blessed him with proficiency in many talents that he loved such as playing the guitar, playing the drums and singing. He was excited and motivated to perform whenever he was offered the opportunity and he did it with a big smile on his face. Family and friends loved to hear him display his God given talents and noticed his passion as he was playing and singing. He also would stand outside of the St. Louis stadium singing and playing the guitar for fans leaving the building. That is how much he loved what he did and wanted to bless others. He loved playing the guitar and drums just as he loved life itself. Being around him gave others joy because of the smile on his face and his personality. He was known to have the “gift of gab” and it was hard to stay mad at him too long because once he would get done talking he would give you a big smile and a warm embrace and you knew everything was going to be alright. He will truly be missed by all.
Anthony served in the United States Airforce and was stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County, California. He also worked for John Cochran VA Medical Center located in St. Louis, Missouri as a Clerk and Sales Associate for 9 years.
Anthony was preceded in death by two brothers, John Shepherd Jr. and Norman Shepherd; one sister Cola Jean Holloway (Shepherd) and his grandmother Thelma D. Hines.
He leaves to cherish his memories to his father John Shepherd and his mother Vernice Shepherd of St. Louis, Missouri; his former wife, Margaret Meadows of St. Louis, Missouri; one son, Sean Shepherd of Phoenix, Arizona; five brothers, John H. Shepherd, III (Estella) of St. Louis Missouri, Lawrence Shepherd (Barbara) of Bourbonnais, Illinois, Keith Shepherd of Kansas City, Missouri, Alonzo Shepherd (Robin) of St. Louis, Missouri and Lathan Shepherd of St. Louis, Missouri; one sister Beverly Duncan of St. Louis, Missouri and a host of cousins, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.
