Sherrill was a lifelong resident of Olivehurst.

After a tour in the Navy, he attended Chico State where he got his teaching degree. He earned his way through college as a Blacksmith before settling into a lifelong career working for the Marysville Joint Unified School District, first as a Reading and Math Specialist at Olivehurst Elementary School, finally retiring as a Vice Principal at Anna McKinney Middle School in Marysville.

He had the good sense to marry the "girl next door," and love of his life, Ruby Lee (Odom) Henry, who predeceased him.

He is survived by his children, Eric Henry, Verna Henry, Tecie Lee Brown, Shawn G. Henry and his wife, Catherine; his grandchildren, Andrew Lester, Jacob Brown, and Ashleigh Brown; and his great grandson, Joshua Lester. He is also survived by his brother, John Henry and his wife, Marvis; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

The Henry family will be holding a gathering in his memory on Saturday, November 9th at 4:00 pm at his favorite joint, "Dukes Diner" in Olivehurst on 7th Avenue.

The family welcomes friends, colleagues and acquaintances to share in the celebration of his life.
