The sad passing of Ernie Sheppard PO18328M

28/10/2020 - Date published

With regret that I must inform you that Ernie Sheppard sadly ‘Crossed the Bar’ on Saturday 24th October 2020 at home.

Ernie was a well-known RMA Member and former member of the Exeter Branch. When he returned from Spain he was a Mentor for a number of years. A Falklands Veteran, he served from 1959-1985 attaining the rank of Sgt (D)

 Ernie was married to Christine and had recently moved to Exmouth and joined the local Branch.

 Family funeral at St Johns in the Wilderness, Exmouth, 12.00 on 16th November

Exmouth RMA is hoping to provide a lining party only plus the Branch Standard. A RM bugler has been requested; due to Covid 19 & Rule 6 it will be a private family committal at the grave only.

There is no wake but Christine is hoping to have a memorial service in 2021.

Roy Davis

RMA Exmouth
