I'm involved in a pretty extensive genealogy project and am trying to hunt a relative down. I have come to find that my grandfather's brother (both of whom grew up in Hell's Kitchen) ended up in Clearwater (or that general area) and had a donut shop called "Shep's Donuts". His name was Thomas Sheppard, but went by the names of Tommy, Tom, or - evidently, Shep. It appears he passed away a few years ago (somewhere in his upper 70s or 80s maybe), but I was hoping that if any Clearwater residents new him, or the place, that maybe they could give me some info? I know nothing about the guy's personality, so for all I know he was a bum, and maybe his donuts stunk, but any info I could get would be great! Thanks!

John: Obviously I don't get to this site often, but...I and my family knew "Shep".
His wife (or longtime companion) worked as a waitress for my parents who owned
a restaurant in north clearwater in the 70's. He had a permanent set up at a flea
market that used to be in Holiday...he was a very nice guy.
