Help Lay My Dad, Robert Shields To Rest aka Dipper

Rest In Peace Robert Shields a.k.a. Dipper

Dear friends, family, and the Bakersfield community,

It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the death of My dad Robert Shields. For those of you that knew him, you knew that he was a fighter. MY dad fought till the very end — so much so, that none of us thought it was the end just yet. He was turning 50 in just a couple days!!!!

Its so sad to know the strongest man I've ever known , is gone, ill tell you that you should prepare for death. Death is inevitable. No one is too good to beat it. deserved. He brightened the lives of so many with his laugh, sense of humor, and just his personality in general he was such a good person my dad was always there no matter what and he have so many friends and he would always be there for them no matter what not many people I know have anything bad to say about him! He was amazing! And  heaven truly gained an angel to be reckoned with — in the best way. 

As you can imagine, my family was not at all prepared for the financial burden that comes along with a proper funeral service and burial. That is why I am reaching out to you all in hopes that you’ll show your support. Not for me, but for Him, he would of helped anyone that was close to him or even if he didn't know you he would help . And it's so sad ! I am devastated. 

So you know exactly where your donation will be used, we are planning a modest but proper ceremony. Every little bit helps!
