Paul Shepherd Sr., 84, of Warsaw, passed away on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, at Lutheran Kosciusko Hospital.

He enjoyed woodworking and could “build the impossible” and fix anything, he even rebuilt the house three times; from the foundation up, remodeling and from damage by lightning. He also enjoyed talking about politics.
He had a green thumb, especially with flowers, and loved tending to his garden. Paul adored his cats and dogs as well as raising goats, turkeys, rabbits ... You name it! He was a member of Open Door Baptist Church in David, Ky.
