On February 22, 2023 the Shepherd family tragically and unexpectedly lost their hero, Joseph Steven Shepherd. Joe was born in Geneva, Ohio on December 9, 1958. He then was raised in Madison Township where he attended Madison High School and then he started his early career as an incredibly talented general contractor.
Joe married the love of his life Shirley Moore in 1986 in Madison Township. He dedicated his entire life to being a devoted father, grandfather and loving husband. Joe was passionate about his family, construction, golf and tactical sport. The world lost one of the brightest lights when he departed.
