David Sherrod, age 59, died Sunday, 24 June, 2018, at Green Meadows Care Center after a long battle with cancer. Born 11 September, 1958, he was the 5th of 6 children born to Donna and James Sherrod of Canton, OH. Dave worked for many years at EMSCO, Inc.

    Damn David why didn’t you let me know it was so close. I’m gonna miss the hell out of you my friend. See you soon

  2. Paul Wolanski says:

    What I remember about Dave was his attitude toward life and the people around him. Dave never said no when we needed him and he was always giving help, even if we didn’t ask for it, especially when he thought we were doing it wrong. (We all loved him for that) His battle with Cancer was an example of his never give up on life spirit. He made it so much longer than the doctors expected and all of us were blessed to get that extra time. David will be missed in body but will always be remembered in our hearts.
