Help Find Clarence Victor Sheppard 1929-1996 to Return Military Items to Family

Recently a request for help was posted on the Simcoe County Genealogy page on Facebook. Deborah C. posted (in part):

1972 Voters' List Orillia Ontario
"A few weeks ago, a friend of mine successfully bid on a soldier's service book and a few other items belonging to a man from Orillia. Clarence Victor SHEPPARD was born in Orillia 9 May 1929; died 17 November 1996 in the same area. He is buried at Bethel Cemetery in Kilworthy.  Clarence Sheppard enlisted in Toronto 5 June 1953; his service number was 24870. RCIC High Depot is written in his book, and POT driver mech. noted.  if anyone knows of any family members of Clarence Victor SHEPPARD, let us know so that we can contact them to see if they'd like this soldier's book etc that we found. "
If you have any information please post here as a comment or on the Facebook page or in private email to me (olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com). Let's see if we can find the family this soldier's items should go to.
