Warren Wayne Sherrod, loving husband, devoted father, adoring grandfather, loyal friend and faithful servant of Jesus Christ passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, July 1, 2012 at the age of 75.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Dinnie; daughter Diana Sartin and her husband Baron; daughter Delann Sherrod and her partner Leslie Spencer; grandchildren Ross Sherrod, Morgan Sherrod Lund and her husband Dave, Jessie Sartin Gardenhire and her husband Cale, Jill Sartin, Jackson Sartin; great-grandchildren Grayson Lund and Scout Lund. He was preceded in death by his father, Buddy L. Sherrod ; mother Frantz Monet Sherrod and infant brother Howard Kenneth Sherrod.

Warren was born in Beaumont, TX on June 18, 1937 and was raised in Conroe, TX. He was a 1955 graduate of Conroe High School and graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a BS in Geology (1959) where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity. He married Norma Jean Baker (Dinnie), his high school sweetheart and the love of his life on August 25, 1956. They had a loving marriage and together continued to build Warren's father's pipelining business, Sherco, into the very successful Sherco Construction, Inc. for 47 years. He was lovingly referred to by his employees/friends as "Sherco."

Warren was a 3rd generation pipeliner and doing the job right was his passion but he had many others: fishing, wood-working, bird dogs, hunting, flying, cooking, drawing, sculpting, fly-tying, r'ving with Dinnie and the Meandering Methodists just to name a few but his true passion was his family. Anything and everything he did was for his family. He never missed an opportunity to tell a story, demonstrate how to build something, take us fishing, teach us how to drive, give his sage advice, make homemade waffles, wake us up in the morning and be home every night for a sit down meal.

Warren was a member of First Baptist Church, Conroe for 57 years. He was a 52 year member and Past Master of Conroe Masonic Lodge #748 where he earned his 32nd and was awarded the honorary 33rd. He was the Past District Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Texas and performed over 200 inspiring Masonic funerals. Warren was a City of Conroe Councilman from 1976-1979 and served as Mayor Pro-Tem in 1977. He was a member of the City of Conroe Planning Commission from 1973-1975 and a member of the Board of Directors of Texas Commerce Bank-Conroe. Warren was active with the Montgomery County Fair Association where he was a lifetime Vice-President, member of the Executive Board of Directors and a Committee Chairman. During his retirement he was appointed as a member of the Appraisal Review Board for the Montgomery Central Appraisal District where he was able to share his friendship and stories with many new friends. He was a man of integrity with a gift of gab who lit up the room wherever he went. Warren Wayne Sherrod was one of a kind, a great man, and he will be terribly missed by all who knew him.

Pallbearers will be Johnny Holmes, Buddy Holmes, Baron Sartin, Jackson Sartin, Dave Lund and Cale Gardenhire. Honorary pallbearers are Jeff Sherrod, Tyler Gentles, Willie Carrington, Ennis Brown and Russell Ivey.

The family will receive visitors from 5:30pm-7:00pm on Wednesday, July 4th at Cashner Funeral Home, Conroe, TX. A memorial service celebrating his life will be Thursday, July 5th at 1pm in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church, Conroe.
