It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Carl Ray Shepard, a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who departed this world on November 9, 2023, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Born on September 1, 1945, in Amarillo, Texas, to George and Cynthia Shepard, Carl's legacy is one marked by love, hard work, and a deep commitment to family.

Carl is survived by his loving wife, Barbara, with whom he shared a lifetime of cherished memories and sisters Vera Johnson, Dorothy Berry and Sue Doss and brothers George Shepard and Glen Shepard. Together, they built a foundation of love and support that stood the test of time. His children, Stormy McCullar, Susie Keeler, Martha Long, Regina Levy and Billy Morgan, were the center of his world, and his legacy lives on in them.

Even after retirement, he continued to lend his skills to various projects, staying active and engaged in the community he held dear. His dedication to his work was matched only by his passion for leisure, with fishing and football ranking high among his favorite pastimes.

A true Texas Tech fan, Carl's allegiance to the Red Raiders was unwavering, and he took great pleasure in cheering on his team, creating lasting memories with friends and family during game days. Beyond his love for sports, Carl was a family-oriented man, finding joy in simple pleasures and the company of loved ones.
