For the people who remember my father Sherman from his “semi-retirement” years working for Don Lang, I wanted to pass along the sad news of his passing away on October 1st.
Sherman’s love of sharing his knowledge and time with anyone interested in antique cars will be missed by many. His favorite thing was going to car shows and giving free rides in his 1914 touring car named Mrs. Vickery (some of you may remember this car was formerly owned by Bill Eads) to any kids and parents that were interested.
Here’s a link to the obituary:
Mark, please accept my sincere condolences and prayers for you and your family. Never easy.
Wow, very sad to learn this. Always enjoyed talking with Sherm on the phone - he was so helpful. I once sold him some early glass slides showing Model T advertising and he was so glad to have them. He sure enjoyed Model Ts and his hobby and was a real treasure. We knew Miss Vickery very well and Bill was also a real friend in the hobby. Not sure exactly what became of that car, but I do believe Bill's daughter has kept the 1925.
Rest is peace old friends-
Mark, my condolences to you and your family.
Sherm was always a legend when he worked at Lang's. I never got the pleasure of working with him directly but we chatted often and loved his spirit and you of the hobby. He will be greatly missed
Mark and Family,
Always enjoyed chatting with your dad and meeting him at the “Chicken Run”. He will be missed. Condolences to you and your family. RIP Sherm.
