Victor J. R. Sheppard

Victor James Robert Sheppard left this world for his heavenly home December 22, 2017, shortly after his 75th birthday. He served the New Mexico Trucking Association as Managing Director for 21 years, retiring in 2013.

He was born in England, served 12 years in the British Royal Navy and became a very proud American citizen in 1996.

Vic loved his church, his Lord, and his family. He leaves his sister Maureen; his loving wife of 30 years, Betty; his loving mother-in-law, Jean Benton; his valued sons James and Jerry Hayes; his treasured grandchildren, Alyssa, Andra, Cassie, Corey, Jonathan, Kaya, Taven, Tessa, Thomas and Trevor; his precious great-grandchildren Adrianna, Alyceson, Angel, Brayden, Damian, Kairi, Logan, Marissa and Toby; as well as a loving family in England and America and his many friends around the world!

Vic enjoyed fishing, working in his "shed" fixing things, golf, and helping others. He will be missed for his quick wit, gift of gab, his ever present smile, and his willingness to offer help to all.

Celebration of his life will be held in Albuquerque, NM at New Beginnings Church of God located at 3601 Montgomery Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109, on January 8th, 2018, at 3:00 p.m.

Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Vic to Follow the Son Bible Club, P.O. Box 3212, Edgewood, NM 87015 or the Blue Star Mothers at
