Final Voyage

Capt. Jim Sheppard

USS Perry Skipper - Aug 63 to Apr 65 

To all hands:

It is with deep regret, one of Perry's finest, Capt. Jim Sheppard has taken his Final Voyage on August 2008. Jim will be logged into our 'gone but not forgotten' Perry memorial register and will be remembered at our next Memorial Service when we pay tribute to all Perry shipmates passing since our last reunion. Capt. Sheppard’s photo can be viewed along with other Perry Skippers on our website.

As befitting a true sailor, Captain Sheppard was buried at sea from aboard the USS Germantown out of San Diego.

 

Condolences can be sent to his wife Jane
