RICHARD (RICH) SHERMAN
Richard (Rich) Sherman, 78, of Perrysburg, Ohio, peacefully passed away on July 24, 2020. Rich was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was a graduate of Milwaukee Country Day School and Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. He spent his career in auto and auto-related industries and retired from Federal Mogul Corporation in 2004. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and served in Vietnam.
Known for his passion for reading, he could be found with a book in hand or nearby at all times. He loved cars, especially Mustangs, and could talk for hours about them. Rich had a great sense of humor, whether reminiscing with his brother Jeff, watching British comedies or enjoying silly stories about his grandkids. He loved a great laugh. Mostly Rich was known for his love of family—wife Myrna, his children, grandchildren and golden retrievers.
Rich was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Greta; his sister, Susan Meyer; his step-son, John Adkins, and his beloved goldens, Maggie, Riley and George.
He is survived by his life partner and wife of 40 years, Myrna; his children, Melissa (Eric) Baroky, Matthew (Josy) and Brandie (Claudio) Pino; his brother, Jeff (Eunice), and his seven grandchildren, Claudio Jr., Isabella, Jackson, Charlotte, Santino, Hannah and Luke. A private memorial will be held at a later date.
