Edward “Sherm” Sherman passed away on Nov. 28, 2019 due to congestive heart failure and diabetes. Ed was born on October 17, 1953, to Leo and Betty (Moulin) Sherman in Alliance, OH. He graduated from Marlington High School in 1971 and on October 6, 1973, he married Mary Kritz.
Ed began his career as a mechanic at Warner’s Garage and Equipment in Harrisburg while still in high school. Starting out on lawnmowers and small tractors, he was soon repairing backhoes and bulldozers. In 1994, he opened his own business and many of his previous customers followed him. He spent many weekends working on his father-in-laws semi’s and when called would repair any family or friend’s vehicle. His shop, especially in the summer, was a gathering place for everyone. For many years, Ed enjoyed bowling, golfing and attending the tractor pulls in Bowling Green, OH. He enjoyed traveling, especially to Colorado and Alaska. Ed’s true joy was spending time with his grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
Ed is survived by his wife of 46 years, Mary Sherman; his mother, Betty Sherman of Alliance; daughter Jennifer (Mark) Merriman of Alliance; son, Zach (Julie) Sherman of Louisville; and youngest daughter Katy Sherman (Brandon Pollock) of Clinton; his three grandchildren, Ethan and Carly Sherman of Louisville; and Amelia Merriman of Alliance; brothers, Patrick Sherman (Christine Bourne) of Salem; David Sherman (Goldie Mace) of Alliance; sisters, Sue (Jerry) Henderhan of Canton; and Lou Fisher of Alliance; many cousins, nieces and nephews.
