Gerald (Jerry) Dale Sherman passed away June 2, 2021 in his sleep from natural causes, at his home in Hagerman, Idaho. His family was by his side. He was born March 14, 1924 in Tremonton, Utah, to Lewis Sherman and Bessie Bowcutt Sherman. He was 96.

He married Lola Firth, who preceded him in death, then married Gail Leitzel, and later divorced.
He lived many places including Mexico, Arizona, northern Idaho, Hagerman, Idaho and Bellevue Idaho. He and Lola had three boys, Bob Sherman, Terry Sherman and Glenn Sherman. Glenn is the only surviving child.

Jerry was quite the character! He was an avid hunter and fisherman. If it flew it died! He enjoyed traveling to Mexico and deep sea fishing. He was a fishing and hunting guide to many including Earnest Hemingway and Gary Cooper. He spent many a day camping on the Salmon River catching his limit always! Then would cook it up for all to enjoy.

He loved his grandchildren and would load them into his airplane. He always had a six pack of beer and smoked salmon. No matter how early the flight was they had to crack a beer for him! That’s just the way he was. We’ve also been told that he would take them to Glenn’s Grocery in Bellevue, he’d buy a six pack of “stubbies” and water them down and give to them, he is known for teaching them how to drink and cuss. that’s just the way he was.

He is survived by his son Glenn (Amy) Sherman of Arizona; granddaughter Kristin (Ken Oakeson) Sherman of Boise; Grandson Brad Sherman of Boise; Granddaughter Tonia (Brent) Crocker of Wendell; Granddaughter Misha (Chris) Stewart of Boise, Great grandchildren Dakota Crocker, Aubree, Creed and Bridger Feight. Parker Sherman Mayle, His sister Beverly (Marion) Hylton and her children and grandchildren including Jerry’s favorite Kyler Hylton of Alaska. They were hunting and fishing buddies.

He is preceded in death by his wife Lola, brother Don; sons Bob and Terry.
