Charles Edward Sherman

Charles Edward Sherman, 80, passed from this earth Friday, March 20, 2020, after a short bout with cancer.

Charles was born Jan. 26, 1940, to William Havner Sherman and Helen Katherine Sherman (nee Roderick). He graduated from McCutchenville High School in 1958.

Charles spent his early years working on the family farm and helped his farming friends and neighbors his entire life. He worked at Tiffin Art Metal, Grabbler, Hayes Albion, Horizon, and he retired from Sunoco Products in 2005.

He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and enjoyed bowling, softball, gardening, cutting wood, fishing, travel, and baking cookies for his grandchildren. He loved to socialize and was quick to offer a visitor a beer and conversation. His children and grandchildren were the light of his life.

He married Susan Reis Aug. 22, 1964, and she survives him.

Charles was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Alice Sherman; and granddaughter, Alexandria Goodwin.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his four children, Sara Sherman, Jonathan (Tammy) Sherman, Aaron (Tracey) Sherman and Rachel (Fred) Ruggeri; 11 grandchildren, Joshua Sherman, Elise Goodwin, Taylor, Stephanie, Joey, Ainsley and Zavier Sherman, and Veronica, Ashley, Jessica, and Sean Ruggeri; one great-grandchild, Logan Bailey; two sisters, Marjorie (Jim) Coldiron and Nancy Robison; and one brother, Robert (Virginia) Sherman.

A private family service will take place. Burial will be private at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery, Tiffin. Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family.

The family would like to thank Bridge Hospice Care Center, Findlay, for their outstanding care during this challenging time.
