It is with great regret that we report the passing of P/M RT Shepherd of Cardenden, Fife, and formerly of Dysart and Dundonald Pipe Band.
Bob was 81 and had been ill for some time. Bob Shepherd was a double winner of the World Pipe Band Championship and proprietor of his own bagpipe making firm.
His instruments won countless major awards. As a teacher Bob was unsurpassed taking boys from his local Ballingry School and training them for Grade 1.
He was an innovator and introduced a raft of new bagpipe products on to the market.
A fuller obituary will be carried later but for now we offer sincere condolences to Dorothy and family.
