Obituary for Donald B. Sherer

Donald Bucknell Sherer, of Troy, died June 24, 2018 after a life filled with love, adventure and deep friendships. He was 81 years old. Don was born March 11, 1937 in Detroit to Elizabeth and Donald Sherer. He graduated from Southfield High School in 1955.

Don met his soulmate, Carole Englert while trick or treating in October 1958. After a brief courtship they were married in April 1959 in Royal Oak.

Don had passion for golf and its history, which helped guide his travel and fun with Carole. He was gifted at making all those he encountered feel extra special and important, leaving them with his genuine smile. Don will be remembered for his service and devotion to the City of Troy and its development, the Troy Kiwanis Club, The Troy Boy-Girls Club, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He especially loved his granddaughters who always knew his kindness, sweetness and full heart.

Don is survived by and will be dearly missed by his wife Carole and his children Donald (Lynn Woodard) and Jonathan (Karen) and his granddaughters, Kelsey, Lauren and Maddison. He is also survived by his sister, Wendy (Michael) Grant and his brother-in-law, Tom (Debbie) Englert.

A Memorial Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Rds.) Friday at 4pm. Friends may visit beginning at 2pm.

Memorials appreciated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, 2265 Livernois Rd # 410, Troy, Michigan 48083.
