Sherman was born October 8, 1941, at his family home in North Charleston.  Sherman served honorably in the United States Marine Corps from 1960-1966 during the Vietnam War.  After being honorably discharged, he attended and graduated from Baptist College, and then moved to North Augusta in 1971.  Sherman retired from ASCO/Emerson Electric after 30+ years as the shipping and receiving supervisor.  He was a devoted follower of Christ, a faithful congregant of Sweetwater Baptist Church, and a member of Gideons International.  Sherman was loved by family, friends, and colleagues alike.  He daily lived out Jesus’ command to love thy neighbor as thyself, and was always willing to help anyone with anything at any time.  Sherman was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, camping, and gardening.  When not chauffeuring members of the Augusta National Golf Club, Sherman could be found working at the farm he shared with Eva, tending to their animals, building farm structures, or completing any other outdoor project.
