Mr. Ronald Justice Sheppard, 53, of Waterbury, passed away, on Friday, September 6, 2019.

Mr. Sheppard was born in Brooklyn, NY, on June 25, 1966, a son to Shirley (Quintyne) Sheppard of Fort Myers, FL, and the late Willie Sheppard.

Mr. Sheppard went to St. Fortuna grammar school in Brooklyn NY, and Long Island Holy Trinity High School. After high school, he went to stay with a special aunt Norma Parson, who continued to raise him. In 1984, he became a member of The 5 Percenter Nation of Gods and Earths, with his great friend Jusheem Allah. Ronald started working at Lens Crafters as an Ophthalmologist Assistant until 2016. After leaving Lens Crafters, he started a new hobby; gardening. .He loved cooking, trading stocks, fishing, and if he happened to have any leisure time, he would find something to research. He was loved and enjoyed spending time with his family and loved keeping up with them but, never wanted anyone to worry about him. He was kind hearted, loving and always found good in people no matter the situation, a lover but always stood his ground. Knowledge, equality and positive energy is what he lived by. He will be missed by everyone that loved and knew him.

Besides his mother, he leaves to cherish his memory; a daughter Nyel Sheppard of Tabor City, NC, a son Justice Sheppard of (Shelton), CT., a grandson Amir Atkinson, a sister Carolyn (Shawn) Dueberry of Fort Myers, FL., and two nephews Jordan and Brandon Dueberry, both of Fort Myers, FL.
