Sherman Joseph Stiles, 80, passed away peacefully on April 20th, 2023, in Boardman, Ohio. Sherman was born on January 30th, 1943 in Wilkinsburg, PA, to Joseph C. Stiles and Ethel Hagen Stiles. He grew up alongside his older sister, Carole Normand (Carmel, CA), and younger sister Vicki Epling (formerly of Rootstown, OH). He married his beloved wife, Lynn Morrow, in 1971, and they spent fifty-one beautiful years married. He was an outstanding husband, who some might even say spoiled his wife Lynn, in the very best of ways. Together they had two children, David and Aaron, and three grandchildren Zaeda, Maxwell, and Ravenna.
Sherman grew up in Nanty Glo, PA and Akron, Ohio and graduated from Garfield High School in 1960. He spent his career in Salvage working for General Motors at the Lordstown Plant for twenty-seven years before retiring to spend the latter half of his life tinkering and enjoying time with his family.
Sherman will be remembered for his kind heart and generous spirit. He was a beloved father, grandfather, and friend. He was known to be caring, resourceful, and industrious. Happiest with a cup of coffee, a project, and fast cars, Sherman was a man of simple pleasures and lots of laughter. As a father, he was gentle and fair. He loved showing his boys how to build and do things. Many hours spent in the garage brought he and his boys together over cars and machines. Sherman also loved being involved with the boy's Scout Troop 46 and served as treasurer for many a year. Both David and Aaron rose to be Eagle Scouts with Sherman and Lynn at their side, beaming with pride.
Sherman is survived by his wife, children, and grandchildren, as well as his sister Carole and many nieces, nephews, and friends. He will be deeply missed by all. May Sherman’s memory be a blessing to all who knew and loved him.
An open house celebration of Sherman's life will be held on Thursday, April 27th, 2023, at Drake’s Landing in Canfield, OH from 2-5 PM. Family and friends are welcome to attend and share their memories of Sherman. Please wear spring colors.
