Donald L. Sherman, 96, of Bloomfield, NY passed away peacefully on May 8, 2022 at Penfield Place, after a brief illness.

The only child of Lynn W. and Alice Domm Sherman, Don grew up in Bloomfield and graduated from Bloomfield High School in 1943. He married Loretta Fitzgerald in June 1949, and the young couple raised two daughters Barbara and Linda. Always an entrepreneur, Don operated a septic service for many years. Generous and giving, Don enjoyed sharing with the community and friends. He also had a great fondness for pets in need, and lavished affection on many beloved cats and dogs.

Don was predeceased by his wife Loretta in 2003 and by his daughter Linda Sherman Wager in 2021. He is survived by his daughter Barbara Sherman Years (Douglas Magin), granddaughter Colleen (Adleor) Brigham and their daughter Elizabeth Drake, grandson John (Stephanie) Years and their two sons Brandon and Benjamin, and grandson Chance D. Wager and his son Ross.

The family will hold a private memorial service at a later date.
