Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.
