I would appreciate it if someone could look-up in the Calgary newspaper(s) the obituary for Lionel John Cedric SHEPARD, a lawyer, who died at age 52 at Alliance, Alta. Dick was a decorated veteran of WWI and served as a Major in WWII at Calgary and Ottawa and I expect his obituary to be longer and perhaps with a photograph. I am hoping the obit. will give the married names and residences of his daughters, Natalie and Joan, born in the 1920s. Perhaps another regional newspaper would better cover Alliance.
I have seen the write-up for L. J. Shepard in Alcorn, Phyllis M., editor. 1976. "In the Bend of the Battle: A History of Alliance and District." p 538, see http://188.8.131.52//loc_hist/page.aspx?id=1521332
