Kenneth Sherman

January 9, 1957 - May 15, 2017
Kenneth Sherman

Kenneth John Sherman, 60, of Largo, passed away suddenly May 15, 2017.  Ken was born in Luton, Bedfordshire, England on January 9, 1957.  He came to the States in March of 1957.  His family would live in Chicago, IL for many years before eventually returning to England.  He and attended high school in Lakenheath, and to this day is a proud Lakenheath Lancer.  In 1976, he traveled to Columbus, MS where he met the love of his life, Kimberly.  They married a year later shortly after he joined the US Air Force.  They moved around often, but spent many years raising their family in New Orleans, LA.  In 2004, Ken and his family settled in Largo, FL.

Ken spent his working years as a salesman, and was very proud of it.  He could “Sell ice to an Eskimo” as he liked to say.  In his spare time, Ken loved anything Chicago sports related, (except for the Cubs), and watching Westerns or old black and white movies.  Music was one of the biggest parts of his life.  He could tell you exactly where he was and what he was doing the first time he heard a song.  Above all, though, he valued his family and his friends.

Ken is survived by his devoted wife of 40 years, Kim; his mother, Cecilia Clark; his son, Nicholas (Krystal); his daughter, Heather; his brothers: Wayne (Mary), David (Dollyne), and Jim (Linny); his sister, Michele (Lamont) Poston; and so many more loving family members and dear friends.

Visiting hours for Ken will be held at Anona United Methodist Church on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9:30-11am.  Viewing time will be from 9:30-10am only.  The casket will be closed at 10am, but visitation with family and friends will continue until 11am.  A service will follow at that time, including military honors.

The loss of Ken has come suddenly.  In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to a fund that has been created in Ken’s honor to help his loving wife and family move forward through this very difficult time.  Please click here to show them your love and support.

    May God comfort you in your time of grief and sorrow. Ken was a great guy. He was a wonderful father-in-law to my daughter. He was always friendly and charming. He even helped us in purchasing our washer and dryer. I'm sure he will be missed by many.

    Kim my heart is so saddened by the loss of your precious husband and my dear Lancer friend. In so thankful I got to visit and laugh with him at the Cocoa Beach Reunion last June. I remember rolling him around in that wheelchair and he wanted me to pop a wheelie. He just laughed and laughed. And I enjoyed meeting you and now I feel I have a friend for life because you are and always will be a part of the Lancer family....my prayers are with you and your family at this very sad time.....

    I only met Ken once. It was while he and his lovely wife Kim attended the weekend reunion for Lakenheath American High School in Cocoa Beach last June. Ken and his wife Kim, were warm, friendly and very engaging. I didn't know him well but will miss him greatly.

    There are not enough words to convey how much Ken will be missed! He could read anyone like a book, and as a sales guru he could sell like crazy....but as a friend he could make me laugh and set me straight on how to sell, how to live my life better, and tell his life stories to anyone who would listen. He loved his family most, Kim you are the sparkle in his eyes. My prayers are with all who are sad at his passing, however I think he would want us to put on some of the old tunes, sing, drink a beer and tell stories that will make us laugh!
