Survivors also include his three children, Rhonda (Andy), Angie and Floyd “Bud” (Lisa); nine grandchildren; his mother, Floy (Ken) Minden; sisters, Deborah Magedanz and Lori Park; and half-brother Jason (Cathi) Pullen.

Dave’s legacy is carried on through the love and memories he shared with each of them. He was preceded in death by his father, Floyd “Bud” Shepherd; and his in-laws, Kenneth and Ruth Gurney.
