Museum Curator Leaves A Legacy

John Shephard was a shy and quiet man happy to spend his time among the historicalJohn Shephard (2) exhibits of the museum he so tirelessly curated.  Fond of reading and classical music, Mr. Shephard lived a quiet and simple life centered around the arts and the museum that he loved.  What few people knew was that Mr. Shephard had another hobby that paid off quite well; namely saving and investing his money.  Upon his death in 2003, it was no surprise that Mr. Shephard left his substantial life savings to the museum.  Apparently,  his estate was so substantial that the museum was able to transfer a portion of the funds to a local foundation to help the community as a whole.  Another inspiring story to add to our Surprise Millionaire collection!
