<![CDATA[SHERRY, Robert]]>https://obituaries.sharonherald.com/obituary/robert-sherry-1089505688<![CDATA[

Robert Merle "Bob" Sherry, 98, a son of Pennsylvania, departed this life on March 18, 2024.While a resident of Pompano Beach, Fla., at the time of his death, Bob was formerly a resident of Sandy Lake and spent most of his life in Pennsylvania. He was born on Aug. 25, 1925, near the coal mining town of Timblin, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania, and was the only child of the late Erbie L. and Wilda I. (Bish) Sherry. After graduating from Punxsutawney High School, Bob enlisted in the U.S. Navy and proudly served his country from 1943 to 1946.On May 20, 1944, while serving in the Navy, he married Anna "Ann" K. Snyder, who preceded him in death on Dec. 23, 1984. Following his military service, Bob returned to Jefferson County and found employment in the coal and fire clay mining industries. However, that experience convinced him to take advantage of the GI Bill so that he might build a better life for himself and his family. Consequently, he attended and graduated from the California State Teachers College, now known as California University, where he earned a teaching degree in industrial arts. The first four years of his teaching career began in the General McLane School District in Edinboro, Pa., but the bulk of his career was spent in the Lakeview School District, where he was the "wood shop" teacher for almost three decades until his retirement in 1985.While teaching at Lakeview High School, he had a direct impact on the lives of many of his students. Bob was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing in Penn's Woods both in and around Sandy Lake as well as at Rocky Camp, the hunting and fishing camp in Elk County that he helped to build with his father and other relatives after World War II. Further afield, Bob marked the beginning of the summer season with a fishing trip to the Province of Quebec, Canada, which he enjoyed with family and friends for 50 consecutive years. While he relished his time in the out-of-doors, he was a devoted father who, along with his wife, Ann, raised four daughters in their home on Wood Street. He was uniformly and justifiably proud of each of his daughters and their accomplishments.Bob was a member of Sandy Lake Presbyterian Church and used his woodworking skills to design and build the large wooden cross which still graces the sanctuary at that house of worship.After attending his 50th high school reunion, Bob became reacquainted with a classmate, Margie E. Shaffer, whom he married on March 1, 1995. Margie survives him in Pompano Beach. In addition to Margie, he is survived by his daughters, Mary Ellen Wiese and her husband, David, of North Carolina, Greta (Doug) Gilmore Slater of Virginia, Carolyn (Dr. James) Reed of Gibsonia, and Annette (Paul) Burke of Murrysville; a stepdaughter, Beverly Spivey of Florida; a stepson, Ken (Lori) Himes, of New Jersey; 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in memory of Bob to the Sandy Lake Presbyterian Church, 3461 Sandy Lake-New Lebanon Road, Sandy Lake, PA 16145.
