Daniel Maurice Shepherd

1977 - 2023

Today we pay our respects to our brother Daniel Maurice Shepherd.

Daniel was born to Renee S Dilworth on January 15, 1977 in Los Angeles California, he was a gentle giant who survived a rocky start in his life. Daniel LOVED his family, his Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Lakers. He loved to be free in the world, to laugh, make others laugh, and have fun. Daniel wasn’t just a man, he was also a Son, a Brother, a Father, a cousin and an Uncle. Daniel was a man of few words, but you could feel his presence, see his warm smile and hear his goofy laugh. Even though we went down a hard road, he would always find a way to show love to all. He never let his past determine how he showed up in the present. You are loved and always will be, and I know the Heavenly Father put a pillow on your seat so you can finally rest. So rest well my brother until we meet again. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. Weโ€™ll mourn the man whoโ€™s gone, whom we lost so unexpectedly, but we will always remember him, and we know that above all, he would want us to remember him as our protector. Mission complete and job well done brother. Tell God thank you for choosing us to be your little sisters. Until we me again big brother. We love you. Rest easy. -(Written by Nieisha and Angel Shepherd)-

    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

    Well it has been a long time since I’ve seen my two niece’s and my now heaven bound nephew Daniel. I can remember when you were a kid one of your favorite songs to sing on the way to church was Please Be Patient With Me God Is Not Through With Me Yet . Daniel you would sing and clap with all of your heart. Rest in Peace Love Auntie Saundra Shepherd aka ( Auntie Samrah)
