Martin Shephard Obituary
Martin Shephard, 92, born October 24, 1924, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2017 at home in Encino, California. He was a longtime member of El Caballero Country Club and the Valley Jesters. After serving in the U.S. Navy in WWII, he and his wife, Phyllis, moved from Chicago to Los Angeles. He was a self-made man who built two electronic component distribution businesses, and rose to head the electronics arm of a Fortune 500 company. He loved golf, bridge, the Dodgers, travel, and most of all his family. He was a gentle, sweet, charitable man of integrity and grace. He lived a wonderful and blessed life. He is survived by Phyllis, his beloved wife of seventy years, his sons Chuck (Robin) and Rick (Charlotte) and his grandchildren, Sam, Jenna, Kim and Michael, who all adored him. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
