Why was he walking?
I believe some of the news reports are incorrect. From my understanding he was driving home in his car.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 5 at noon at Weathers Funeral Home. Visitation will be from Saturday, Jan. 5 from 10 a.m. to time of service.

The family requests no flowers and asks that expressions of sympathy be made to Riley Children's Hospital in memory of Dean R. Shepherd.

I am the mother of Gilbert Mullis' children & I want to say that I am terribly sorry for this tragic accident & I can't even express how sorry I am to the victim's family! No one should ever have to go through this. I am not trying to make any excuses for Gilbert's actions because there are none,but he is NOT this bad guy that everyone is making him out to be! It was a tragic ACCIDENT! He would NEVER hurt anyone intentionally & he was a good father to his children & they are suffering as well!! They are 8 & 10 & they now have to grow up without their dad around.Gilbert does have a drinking problem & he was going to alcohol classes & he was doing really well until he got messed up with a certain person there in Salem. No there was no one that forced him to drive,but I feel like this person he was with should be held in some way responsible for letting him drive..why didn't she take his keys from him?? Thats what I would've done! Gilbert does need to pay the consequences of drinking & driving,but he does need to recieve help as well. He has to pay for this the rest of his life by knowing he took such a wonderful,innocent life!! We all need to pray for both families involved & not throw judgement on people. There are also 2 innocent young children involved that have to deal with this as well as the victim's family!!

Have you NOT noticed that this topix is all about a wonderful man who was taken out by a drunk driver. Your EX is an adult and should have thought like an adult. I cant seem to wrap my head around givin this man any kind of sympathy. He knew he was taking a chance on drinking and driving. Please its a cold slap in the face. This site is in memory of a loving respectful hard working man. Please for those ho are grieving for this loss , start another page for the man who took him out. I wish you would have stayed off here. LOOK at the comments , they are all directed about this wonderful man and then you come to have your say. Its a slap in the face. If you start another topic about your loved one , mabey , just mabey he might get some sympathy but I highly doubt it. We are not thinking about the man who took him out . We are thinking about our wonderful friend. Cold hard facts. THIS TERRIBLE TRAGIC ACT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED(how could you possibly shift any blame on the person who didnt take the keys) he should not have keys to begin with. with a tiny bit of thought. He should have been home drinking to his hearts content. If he was such a wonderful father he should have been thinking, "if" I drink and drive I might harm an innocent person) NOW, "if" he was a working man and had a good work record those children will be taken care of money wise ( but their emotional support is gonna have to be placed on you) it is what it is. Now I dont feel like argueing this case on this site for our dear friend. its not the place to go back and forth. Please someone start a page for the man who "ACCIDENTLY" KILLED HIM. Let this page be a "In Memory ". I wish your comments could be erased so those who have nice memories of our friend can carry on with the condolences its meant to be for.

Dear grieving friend I am the sister of Gilbert and what you replied to Amy was very heartless to her can't you see that all of us are hurting and for one we weren't aware that this was a sight for someone like you to post heartless things I do believe this sight was open to any and all to post and besides we have expressed our sorrow as well so quit being so heartless and see that all of us are victims besides that you are just a friend think of how you would feel if either party involved was a family member to you well just be thankful that this isn't a family member because everyone in both sides of this will have to live with it forever and one day this will fade for you but not for us so why can't you just pray for all of us we are all hurting

No one feels a bit sorry for any of you losers. Screw you and your drunk killer brother!
I can't believe that u could be so cruel. U obviously know nothing about alcoholism. It doesn't make u a loser bum! To wish death on ANYONE is just plain cruel & heartless & I wasn't whining about anything. Just want everyone to know Gilbert is not this bad person u are making him out to be & he is not my husband! I really think u need to grow up or go to church to know that u DO NOT wish death on anyone!

Drunk Driving has gone on way to long and our Justice system keep's coddling them,giving them chance after chance after chance until finally they kill someone.The prosecutor and judge who turned this guy loose should be held liable,until this happen's it will continue to happen!!!After a person's first offense they should be put on home incarceration and on the next offense jail time.It's alway's,the poor drunk he didn't mean to do it and innocent people get killed.Several of his family member's knew of his problem and did nothing to keep him monitored all the time,he is just a child in a man's body!!

people really do need to look at the other side of the picture...because his children will eventually (many years down the road) find out what happened and that is probably bad enough for him (gilbert) in itself. now...he didn't need to be behind the wheel and as for the other person that was with him i have no clue about but was that person drinking also? it was his irresponsiblity, he has to live with his actions. he may not have meant to do it, but he was the one who chose to drive while intoxicated. and he would more than likely never willing take a persons life. i feel for you also amy, i imagine you are going through hell with having to explain to the children what is going on. i wouldn't want to be in your shoes. i pray you find a way to comfort those children because they are just to little to understand the severity of the situation right now.

i loved dean, great man. however i feel for his children (gilbert)...not him....it isn't their fault for their fathers actions and wrong of anyone to say something down to children. they weren't there and it wasn't their fault.

at any given moment he could have made the decision to NOT drink and drive. Had he killed a child would you think differently? A whole family? It HAPPENS! There are innocent children that cant understand where their Grandpa is! Quit throwing the judge word around. You would have been better leaving your OPINION to yourself. This was all about a man who everyone in the surrounding communities ( scottsburg, Henryville, Underwood ,Lexington Salem , Austin Vienna) loved NOT ABOUT your opinion. You have no loss, your buddie is still breathing.

To the mom of the drunk's kids, GET THE HELL OFF HERE BEFORE SOMEONE REALLY TELLS U OFF
We don't care about ur whinging ass, or how much boohooing u are doing. Go start ur own page for the killer drunk driver and seek pity there. U are not gonna get it here no matter how much you beg and plead. We don't care, what do u not understand? Had one of your kids been murdered by a drunk on Chriimas Eve. You would not be on the site wanting people to know the killer was a good man. Get the hell off here u joke
You make me sick!
I do wish they would start their own topic also. May I add that man should have valued his children and thought about the "what if " I get into a car ,drink and drive I judt might harm someone. If I were a betting person he probably never spent time with his children anyway. Arent most parents at home waiting on santa on Christmas Eve? I am sure this nice older gentleman had gifts waiting on him that remain unopened. SO SAD. He was so loved by so many. I suppose he never knew how many truly loved him. Such a loss. So full of life! There is a link on here that will show you excatly what a wonderful man the killer is. We could lay the blame on you sherry or amy, Why didnt you get him the help he needed? little late now

I do agree wit you I am not by all means upholding what my brother did we have all tried to get him help but it was he who couldn't admit his problem.so we after all this time couldn't change him. We as the other family involved are very hurt for what has gone on my heart and prayers go out to all the family and friends of Mr Shepard and those who think that it was our fault that my brother did this it was Gilbert that did this an now all family and friends have to pay for it so please find it in your heart to pray for everyone this has effected. Thank you And God bless all andhold all of us close and help everyone get through this terrible tragedy. Sherry
