My fondest thoughts to the family of a doctor that meant so much to me as I
traveled through life in Farmington. He was just the kind of doctor I needed.
How fortunate I was to have his knowledge, experience and good humor..

Good friend, great colleague, excellent physician. He taught me at Hartford Hospital in the 60s when I came up from P and S. He taught me well and I stayed 50 years. Miss him. Mark Izard MD

Please accept my condolences upon the death of your Husband and Father.
Dr Sherpick will always remain a very special person in my life, not only as my doctor, but also in my nursing career at Hartford Hospital.
He saw me through many years of infertility issues, and shared in our joy when he delivered our daughter, and our son about two years later.
In reading his obituary, I found it interesting that he settled in Needham, and spent his last days at North Hill. Our daughter has also settled in Needham, and lives on a property that borders North Hill. I often walked our grandchildren up that hill in their little red wagon, not knowing that the man who made this experience possible was so close by!
Please find comfort and peace in the days ahead, and know that we appreciate him and his life as well.

Please accept our condolences. Bill was my doctor for many years and had a hand in delivering both our daughters. His farmington office was adorned with "plexiglas" that my husband's company provided. My fondest memory is of Bill and my husband, Jim, discussing glass bottom boats as I was in the throe's of labor.
The Mary and the office staff were always welcoming and professional.
We will cherish all the fond memories of this epic time in our lives.
