LeRoy Perry Sherrid, April 15, 1937~March 31, 2015
LeRoy was a hardworking man from the age of 13. He started by helping his father in a mechanic shop working on various motors. Over the course of his life he had three long-term jobs before finally retiring from Wal-Mart in December 2014, after 16 years of service.
He was full of incomparable compassion, always putting others before himself. Everyone notes his smile and his sense of humor as his best qualities. He will be loved and remembered by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.
LeRoy joined his parents Rosetta Ruth Mohler and Clell LeRoy Sherrid, as well as his daughter, Lisa Gail Fairbanks, when he went home to be with our Lord.
He is survived by his brother, Daniel Ray Sherrid; his wife of 57 years, Betty Jean Sherrid; daughter, Tammy Sue Fernandez; his eight grandchildren; Michael, Stephanie, Brandon, Tristen, Brandi, Jarrod, Chelsie, and Kelsie as well as five great- grandchildren; Devin, Breonna, Alivia, Kylee and Evalyn.
In his time on earth, LeRoy enjoyed his midnight rides on his Honda 750 with his wife; trapshooting ( he was the master); hunting pheasants and fishing.
