1954 SHERMAN 2024


April 1, 1954 — March 4, 2024

In a world where noise often takes precedence, there are those whose silent presence speaks volumes. Sherman Newton Jr, esteemed for his career as a truck driver, has bid farewell to this realm, leaving behind a profound legacy that transcends the roads he traveled. Born in the heart of Shrevport, LA, he graced the world with his presence on April 1st, 1954, bringing with him a quiet demeanor and a laid-back attitude that endeared him to all who crossed his path.

Sherman's life was a tapestry woven with threads of simplicity and sincerity. Known for his love of grape soda and Whoppers, he found joy in life's little pleasures and shared them generously with those around him. His hobbies spoke volumes of his character - from fishing in serene waters to maneuvering heavy equipment with finesse, there was a sense of mastery in every pursuit he undertook. Driving 18 wheelers through vast highways became not just a job but a testament to his skill and dedication.

Beyond the roads he traversed and the landscapes he explored, Sherman's proudest accomplishments resided in the bonds he forged with his family. As a father and grandfather, he instilled values of hard work, love, and respect in his kin, shaping their lives with wisdom garnered from decades of experience. His son and granddaughter stand as living testaments to his guidance and unwavering support.

On that somber day in Dallas, TX, where Sherman drew his last breath, a chapter closed on a life that resonated with authenticity and simplicity. Though he may have departed this world, the memories of his gentle presence and quiet strength will linger on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him. As we bid farewell to this truck driver extraordinaire, let us remember Sherman Newton Jr not for the miles he covered but for the profound impact he had on all who walked alongside him on life's journey.
