My beautiful son Wilson Shepherd passed away on 31/08/2023, aged just 25 years, all tests normal, putting his death to SADS.
Wilson was young, fit, healthy and well. He was a triathlete, coming 2nd in his first ever half Iron Man in 2022 for his age group. Wilson also ran the Keswick to Barrow (40miles) every May raising lots of money for MND charity, a charity close to his heart after his uncle died from this awful disease.
2022 also saw Wils achieve a first class honours degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, going onto do his Masters, which sadly he never got to finish.
We miss Wilson every single second of every day, always will. He was a beautiful soul, loved his family and his girlfriend. His early death has left us all traumatised and broken.
With love, Lesley Mease, Wils mum x
