David R. Sherman, 76, of Milford and formerly of Woodville, passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 8 after a long-fought battle with brain cancer. He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Barbara, his ex-wife, Eileen Emberger, his children, Scott, Kathleen, Andrew and Matthew (Lisa) Sherman, his brother, James Michael (Lisa) Sherman of Milford, and sister, Linda Stoddard of Fort White, Florida, along with many other relatives and friends.
David is preceded in death by his parents, Florenz (Sherm) and Mary (Alford) Sherman, his stepson, Andrew Kobbs, his nephew, James, and his mother-in-law, Jean Burr.
David founded and worked for many years at TINAH Machine Shop as a CNC machinist and was co-founder of ReFoamIt LLC. His passion was playing golf, and he cherished his time playing in golf leagues at his favorite courses, Blissful Meadows and Millwood, and recently in the Renegades Golf League with his brother, Mike, or taking golfing trips to Myrtle Beach with friends Ron, Jeano and John. He was a member of the Framingham Eagles and Framingham Elks.
Many weekends, you could find Dave at farmers markets, selling fish with his wife or pickles for his brother.
After his retirement, David enjoyed weekend trips with his wife by his side. He will be remembered for his love of golf, jolly warm smile and willingness to help anyone. He ran a cocker spaniel rescue at his farm in Douglas for many years and always wanted a dog in the house.
Please join his family and friends to celebrate his life on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. at the Framingham Elks, 450 Union Avenue.
