In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010, our dearly loved dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, uncle and everyone's best friend, Bob Sherman, awoke to the sound of the wings of an elite escort of angels and found that he was in Heaven with his Savior and Lord who had called him home.
Bob was born in Columbus, Ohio, on July 21, 1928, to parents Frank and Edith Sherman.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Virginia and youngest son Jeff. He is survived by his son Kip Sherman (Shirley); daughter Jeanne Rodgers (Kenny); daughter-in-law Francisca Sherman; grandchildren Kara Van Buskirk (Brandon), Matthew Sherman, Ashley, Aimee and Andy Rodgers, and Francisco and Jackie Sherman; and great-granddaughter Averie Grace Van Buskirk.
A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010, at First Baptist Church of Prescott, 148 S. Marina St., Prescott, Ariz. Contributions in Bob's memory are requested to First Baptist Church of Prescott.
