Ronald David Sherman, Sr., age 52, of Grandy, NC passed away Saturday, May 9, 2020 of natural causes while stopped near San Antonio, Texas. Ron was born November 25, 1967 in Baltimore, MD and lived in the greater Baltimore area until relocating to Grandy, North Carolina in 2006. For the past fourteen years Ron has been an over-the-road truck driver working formerly for Schneider Trucking and until his death with Melton Truck Lines. He loved his family, being outdoors and truck driving. Ron left a work legacy of excellence, efficiency, and dedication. He cherished completing jobs by exceeding expectations; and had little patience if folks he interfaced with did not embrace this same ethic. His tenacity caused him to be assigned difficult deliveries with challenging timelines (which he enjoyed).

Ron is survived by his wife, Lenora Lynn Fulcher Sherman of Grandy, NC; his daughters Kellie Sheldon and wife, Kelly Sue of Newport News, VA, Karen Sherman of Oxford, AL; his sons, Ronald Sherman, Jr, and Molly Gorzyca of Coinjock, NC, and Donald Sherman and wife Alisa of Norfolk, VA from his marriage to Lenora, and son, Michael Sherman from Baltimore, MD from a previous marriage; grandchildren, Jason, Ronald, Tyler, Aliya, and Raylan; his parents, Ed and Karen Sherman of Frederick, MD and Donald Bowlin of Hanover, PA; his sisters, Jennifer Gerace and husband Robert of Rising Sun, MD and Kelly Lovell and husband Chris of Hanover, PA; his brother, Jason Sherman of Cantonement, FL; and many nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, May 23, 2020 in Laurel Memorial Gardens officiated by his Dad. Twiford Funeral Home, Memorial Chapel, 405 East Church Street, Elizabeth City, NC is serving the Sherman family. Online memorial condolences may be sent to the family at www.TwifordFH.com.

Ron, I was so sad to hear the loss of your father. A small Consolation is he left this world doing what he loved most. I know you to be a strong young man, no doubt a trait you inherited from your dad. Stay strong and know he is watching out over you and your family.

I’ve been blessed by Ron’s knowledge, his presence, and his friendship. He and I were both truckers and it was great being able to talk to him quite often on the phone-making the miles less tedious. I am honored to have had my picture with him in this video tribute to him- that means the world to me as he did as well. I know that he loved his family more then anything and was very proud of his son. Again, God Bless & safe travels on that long road, Driver.

Lynn, Kellie, Karen, Ronald, and Donald,

Words can’t express enough the sadness and heartache I feel compared to your grief. I wish I could be there for you during this time but circumstances prevail until they change.

My thoughts are with you as they are everyday. My prayers to help with the mourning process and healing. Ron will always be with you. He will be missed. Love you all. Hugs and kisses. Michael Miller
