George Allen Shepherd, 76, of Albany passed away at Waverly Place surrounded by his loving family. Allen was born in Corvallis to George David and Gwendolyn May Shepherd. His father passed away in 1942. He would live with his great aunt, aunts, and uncles in Halsey until he was five years old when his mother re-married. He lived in California before moving to Pocatello, Idaho where he met his wife Barbara of 57 years.
They would marry after he joined the Air Force and be stationed at Stead AFB in Nevada. His daughter Gwendolyn was born in 1963 in Reno. After his honorable discharge, he moved his family to Corvallis and then later to Albany.
Shep was a hard working floor installer. He operated Shep’s Carpet Service, but also worked for Modern Carpet, Sears, and Integrity Floors. He was always in high demand. When he retired his knees, Shep began working for Benson’s in Corvallis as an installation consultant. Shep loved fishing with family and friends, bowling and golfing. He is survived by his wife Barbara; daughter Gwendolyn Kroon and son in law Stephen; grandchildren Benjaman and Jennifer; and brothers Larry and Kenny Hall.
