If there ever was a person who stood for all that is good in life, Shep Strong was indeed that person. I was one year ahead of Shep in school but I knew him, his character and most of all his kind smile. My most heartfelt condolences to his family. May He Rest In Peace.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Strong family. I am a close friend of Bill and knew David and Shep throughout all of their and my life in Falfurrias. Shep was a quiet kind of guy that was well adjusted to his immediate surroundings, ie: all of his, David's and Bill's friends. In school, I looked up to Shep as a role model as well as Mr. and Mrs. Strong whom I just loved. There so many stories and memories about them all but sometimes it's best if they reside in our hearts where the meaning is everlasting. My deepest sorrows to Shep's wife and family and may God bless all of you. May he rest in eternal peace.

To Shep's Family and Friends:

Please accept my deepest condolences. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am an old Falfurrias friend of the entire Strong family. Shep and I were classmates from 1st or 2nd grade until we graduated from high school. Mr. and Mrs. Strong were wonderful parents, role models and mentors to us all. Brothers Billy and David are wonderful friends as well.

Growing up in a place like Falfurrias was a blessing, even if we did not know it at the time. Fond memories of the time we spent together in Falfurrias include the hobbies we enjoyed: scouting, golfing hunting and fishing; our money making endeavors: harvesting watermelons, baling hay, moving irrigation pipes, mowing lawns; and our other activities: driving cars, trucks and tractors before having a license to do so, and day trading motorcycles and cars.

Back then everyone enjoyed the outdoors. We played ping-pong, billiards, tops and yoyos, washers and hide and seek. We rode bikes to school and played football and baseball in the neighborhood streets. At night, we gathered under streetlights, hung out together and talked! Not sure how we made it without the electronic devices kids have today, but we did just fine.

A final Shep memory, one summer day we golfed together at the local municipal golf course. That day Shep borrowed his Dad's new fancy and expensive Wilson golf clubs, of course without asking permission. I am sure he thought I'd just borrow his clubs, clean each one and put them back before Dad returned home from work. No problem. Towards the end of the round, Shep hit a horrible shot; the ball sailed way out of bounds into a plowed cow pasture. In the split second after the shot, he shouted out a common four-letter word, probably darn, and snapped the club's shaft over his knee, breaking it in half. Surely, he felt a lot better after the outburst. Then reality set in, oh my, he had to go home, tell Dad he borrowed his clubs without asking, and tell him how he broke one. I never heard how that all worked out, but I am sure Shep made it right, he was that kind of guy.

These, and many more Shep memories remain in our hearts and thoughts forever.
