He was 78.
Sherman spent most of his working life in agricultural industry in B.C. He worked for some years with Safeway in Mission, B.C., and later farmed in the Lower Mainland and in Abbotsford, B.C. He also owned and operated Hat Creek Ranch at Cache Creek. He drove school bus for the school district for several years, then the family moved to Kelowna.
Sherman drove school bus and transit bus there. In 1996, he suffered a stroke after a heart operation that left him with aphasia for the rest of his life. Always cheerful despite his affliction, Sherman made many friends. His big smile and charming personality endeared him throughout the area, and in Kelowna and the Mission District. Sherman enjoyed entertaining his friends and attending concerts. He loved music, and despite his aphasia, could sing the hymns in St. Alban’s Church with the rest of the congregation.
