    David Shepherd passes away

    From cancer, says Cricinfo

    A real shock since he retired not too long ago. Always loved how he still stood one one leg when a Nelson rolled around. RIP.

    Very sad news, and definitely a shock - I wasn't aware he was ill.

    Absolute legend of the umpiring world. Would love it if everyone referred to it as a shep when a player was on 111, 222, obviously meaning good luck.

    Very sad news.

    Combined solid umpiring skill with the sort of character that makes the game interesting. A rare breed, and a sad loss.

    A suggestion by Jimmers Thomas apropos of David Shepherd's death: "At 1:11pm tomorrow, we should all stand on one leg as a mark of respect to the great man." Seems a sensible and immensely fun idea. Status | Facebook

    Via cricinfo via facebook.

    I will definitely.

    Ditto for me.

    RIP Shep, one of the greatest Umpires ever and just like his contemporary Dickie Bird also one of the great characters.

    My old man bowled to Shep once in a benefit match in the early 60's - said it was the only time in his life he decided not to go for a catch off his own bowling

    The county game could use a few more characters like him

    RIP
