Sherman (Palmer) and was a lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio. In the 1970’s Doug worked on the grounds keeping crew at Lakeland Community College where he gained life-long friends. In 1995 Doug started his painting business, Sherman Interiors, which he retired from in 2015 after 20 years. He was well respected for his workmanship and skill. Douglas greatly valued his customers and the true friendships he had with them. Hard working and creative, Douglas took great pride in delivering the best workmanship in all he did. Doug was an avid golfer, enjoyed making model airplanes and ships, and loved camping with his family. He had a great interest in American History and WWII history and he never stopped learning. Known as a kidder and always joking around with friends and family, Doug was charismatic and outgoing, he could make a friend anywhere he went. He was an active member of Amvets Post 40. Remembered as the loving husband of 36 years to Tina Sherman (Hoffman), and proud father of Victoria (Christopher) Ritter and Sara (Bill) Mustard. He adored his grandchildren Ivy, Owen and Liam, and was looking forward to the arrival of his expected granddaughter, Baby Girl Mustard. He is also survived by his father, Edward Sherman; and his siblings, Susan Hunt, Diane Urban, Edward (Cathy) Sherman and Joyce Abbott. He leaves behind many loved aunts, nieces and nephews. His beloved St. Bernard, Gus, remains steadfast and loyal to Douglas, with whom he was inseparable. Douglas was preceded in death by his mother, Phyllis Sherman; and his sister, Debbie Jones.
