Thomas B. “Budd” Sherwood, 87, of Aliquippa (Raccoon Twp.), died Monday evening, March 26, 2018, in the comfort of his home, with his family at his side.
Born August 22, 1930, in Oil City, Pa., he was the only child born to the late Thomas Emmitt and Marcella Evelyn (Davis) Sherwood. He was a retired steelworker for U.S. Steel for over 43 years. An avid hobby farmer, he was a lover of animals, and would do anything for their welfare. He had a lifelong love of cars and antiques; he could look at an old bumper and tell you the make and model of the car it belonged to. A history buff, he could tell stories of times during World War II.
Surviving are his wife of 70 years, Lois Jane (McCully) Sherwood, whom he married in November 1948; a son and daughter-in-law, Thomas and Nancy Sherwood, Ohio; two daughters, Bunny Sherwood and Kathleen Sherwood, both of Raccoon Twp. Grandfather of six, Tommy and Patrick Sherwood, Eric Williams, Olivia Winterrowd, and the late Daniel E. Latshaw and Lloyd E. Latshaw Jr., he is also survived by five great-grandchildren.
Family and friends are welcome to call Saturday from 12 noon until the time of service at 2 p.m. at MCCONNELL FUNERAL HOME, 447 Pine St., Hookstown, PA 15050. He will be laid to rest in John Anderson Memorial Cemetery, Aliquippa.
