SHERMAN, ROGER R. - Elkland  
Roger R. Sherman, 87, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, June 13, 2016. He was born in Elkland on Aug. 30, 1928, to James and Blanche (VanZile) Sherman. He lived all his life in Elkland and on Sept. 11, 1945, he married Anna M. Finnerty. Together they raised two daughters, two granddaughters and a great-grandson. Roger worked as the Elkland borough manager, for the Elkland Electric Company, Elkland Cable Company and Time Warner Cable from which he retired in 2001. He owned his own electrical business and became known as one of the best electricians in the area. He owned a game room in which many of the kids adopted him as their "Bompy" too. He served on the Elkland Council for several years and recently completed his second year as council member and president. After his retirement he worked at the school district as a substitute custodian and continued his love of building things for his family. Roger, or Bompy as many of his "grandkids" called him, loved his family dearly and loved spending time with them going on vacations or just having family gatherings. He always joked that he was surrounded by women and waited for 65 years for his boy to join the family. His great-grandsons were his pride and joy. All three of them spent as much time together watching football, playing games, camping and enjoying each other. Roger leaves behind his loving wife of 71 years, Anna Finnerty Sherman; two daughters, Bonnie L. (Louis) Wither of Hancock, N.Y., Cathy L. (Kevin) Putman of Lindley, N.Y.; three granddaughters, Deanna L. (Robert) Sherman, Christy L. Billington (Randy Fish) both of Elkland, Andrea E.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 18, at the Elkland United Methodist Church at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in his name at Boyd's Corners Bible Church in Cameron, N.Y.
