Marvin Eugene Shepard

DELAVAN - Marvin Eugene Shepard, 62, passed away suddenly, January 27 at his Delavan home where he lovingly cared for his mother. “Marvie” was a beloved son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and great uncle who will be missed by all generations.

Marvie was the second child born to parents Marvin and Beverly Shepard in 1955 and he graduated from Delavan-Darien High School in 1973. He had an amazing mind for numbers with which he avidly charted horse races, sports scores and stats. He later developed a fiery passion for conservative politics and concocting new recipes with his juicer.  Marvie’s quirky sense of humor caused an uproar of family laughter on a regular basis.
He worked in delivery for various newspaper industries and rarely, if ever missed a day of work in 37 years.


He is preceded in death by his father Marvin, and is survived by his mother Beverly Shepard, sisters Debbie Mowery (Bruce) and Donna Adams (Benjamin) and two generations of nephews and nieces who adored him.
Burial service will be private. Condolences may be sent to Marvin’s family. MONROE FUNERAL HOME in Delavan is assisting the family.  Please visit us at
