MENDON, Utah — A paramedic from northern Utah killed in the crash of a twin-engine medical air ambulance in Nevada has been laid to rest.
Colleague Travis Allred says Sheperd loved and trusted everyone he met and truly cared about his patients.
He was married to his high school sweetheart and had three children.
Sheperd died Nov. 18 when the Salt Lake City-bound Piper PA-31T aircraft crashed and burned in Elko shortly after takeoff. The cause is under investigation.
American Medflight pilot Yuji Irie, nurse Tiffany Urresti and patient Edward Clohesey were also killed.
No one on the ground was injured.
