“Cameron “Keith” Sheppard, age 53 of Franklin, Georgia passed away September 13, 2021. He was born February 24, 1968 in Carrollton, Georgia, son of Cameron Eugene Sheppard and the late Shirley Addis Pope Sheppard. He was a Central High School graduate. Keith was a very hard worker and had earned his title as President of Service Electric Company. Aside from enjoying his job and fellow employees, better known as his work family, he cherished the time he got to spend with his wife, children and grandchildren. He would get his grandchildren to sleep by taking them riding on the tractor. He found enjoyment in boating, deep sea fishing, floating the creek, and swimming. He and his family traveled to many places over the world and met a lot of people along the way. He would give lectures and according to him, “he was always right”. He never met a stranger and if he came across your path more than once, he would always ask you about your salvation and whether or not your name was written in the Lambs Book of Life. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and loved him. In addition to his mother, he is preceded in death by his father-in-law, Hershel North. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Pamela North Sheppard of Franklin; his father, Cameron Eugene Sheppard of Franklin, GA; his children, Jeffery and Shealyn Norton, Brady Sheppard and Blair Baldwin, and Joshua Sheppard; grandchildren, Chase Norton, Brylor Sheppard, Kayden Norton, and MaKinlyn Norton; sisters, Aerica and Brad Jones; niece, Amber and Ray Clayton; nephew, Brandon and Morgan Jones; mother-in-law, Retha Sue Adams; a number of “adopted” children; and a host of extended family and friends who will miss him dearly.
