Obituary

John (Jack) Sherin

Jack passed away peacefully at home in Dayton, WA April 11, 2011. By his side through thick and thin was his wife, Glory, and step-daughter, Robin, loving caregivers until the very end. He was born to John and Christine Sherin in Bellingham, WA April 3, 1924. He married Helen Dix in 1942, whom preceded him in death. He proudly served his country during WWII on the aircraft carrier USS Cowpens. As a small business owner, Jack employed numerous people over the years in his restaurants and taverns. He loved to lobby in Olympia for Washington State gambling and played an important role in legalization. He also served as Lake Stevens, WA Sewer Commissioner for 11 years and ran for a seat on the Everett City Council.
He leaves behind his wife and best friend, Glory Perry Sherin; brother, David Sherin (Dorothy); sister, Marion Nichols (Bill); three daughters, Marilyn Sherin (family friend, Irene), JoAnn Rollins (Chuck) and Shirley King; four step-children, Sherman Perry, Michael Perry (Suzanne), Rick Toussaint and Robin Helland (Ron); nine grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; numerous nephews, nieces and cousins; and a lifetime collection of good friends. All will miss him deeply.
Jack's family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Kyle Terry and the wonderful staff at Dayton General Hospital for careful and considerate service to Jack when he was in their care. The family is also grateful to Walla Walla Community Hospice for their outstanding and compassionate concern for Jack and remarkable assistance to his family.
There will be a celebration of life from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at the Everett Elks Club.
