Robert (Bob) Sherrington was born on May 21st, 1930 in High Prairie, Alberta. He passed away peacefully on
Saturday, April 4th, 2015 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 84.
Bob will be sadly missed by his wife, Mary (Molly); sister Mary; five children: Cam, Sue (Rod), Debbie (Lloyd), John
(Eera), Tom (Nicole); eight grandchildren & three great grandchildren.
In 1949, Bob went to Toronto to attend the Radio College of Canada and qualified as a serviceman and repair technician. Bob and Mary were married in 1950. They started their 64-year journey in Toronto, later moving to his hometown of High Prairie in 1952. Mary taught school and Bob owned a radio repair shop. In 1956 they moved to Arrow Park, B.C. where Bob and Mary built a house and raised a family. Due to the flooding of the Columbia River they moved to Vernon, B.C. where Mary taught at BX School for 20 years. After retiring in 1985, Bob and Mary moved to Fauquier, B.C. Here Bob was a HAM operator (VE7DLX) and continued his lifelong interest in building radios and sound equipment. Due to ill health, Bob and Mary returned to Vernon eleven years ago, where, after surgery, Bob enjoyed travelling the streets of Vernon on his electric chair.
There will not be a service. His family will gather together at a later date for a celebration of life.
