February 23, 2013

Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania to the late Robert P. and Eileen Marriott Shertz, David graduated from J.P. McCaskey High School, Millersville University and Notre Dame, Berkeley. He was an extremely competent software engineer. David was also a very talented musician who loved to visit Hawaii.

He is survived by his brother Paul & Debbie Shertz from Bear, Delaware, his brother Stephen & Lisa Shertz from Boulder, Colorado, 3 nephews, many cousins, Uncle Colin from Bradford, England and Uncle Charles from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He will also be missed by his neighbors, Gerry and Char. Sadly, the trio is now a duet consisting of Thomas Povse & Pat Mannion.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests a memorial contribution be made to Jazzschool, 2087 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA 94704 or call 510.845.5373 or email swing@jazzschool.org. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
