John J. SHERIDAN Obituary

81, of Saint Petersburg passed away May 11, 2018 at the Bay Pines VA. Born and raised in Albany, New York, he served two years with the Navy in the post Korean Way before going on to graduate from the University of Florida. After College, he spent eight years in the seminary at Conception Abbey in Missouri before leaving for Florida to care for his ailing father, where he met his beloved wife of 43 years, Barbara Gammon. He spent his career as an educator teaching biology until retirement. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Dorothy Sheridan; and his siblings, Richard, Robert, Lillian, and Marjorie. John is survived by his wife, Barbara; his son, Joshua and daughter-in-law, Dina; and grandchildren, Stella Rose and Beau Henry John. John was a philosopher at heart, with a sharp mind and sly wit. His son often referred to him as a "beautiful man". He adored his family, was thrilled to spend the past four years getting to know his granddaughter, whom he called "Beautiful Stella Starla" and lucky enough to greet his grandson, Beau, born earlier this year. His intellect and sense of humor will be remembered by all who knew him. John's funeral service will be on Friday, May 18, at 1 pm, at St. Paul's Catholic Church located at 1800 12th St. N., Saint Petersburg, Florida. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the ACLU, www.aclu.org or the NAACP, www.naacp.org. Condolences can be shared with the family at:
