Larry Wayne Sherer

Larry Wayne Sherer, 83, Frankfort, passed away Thursday, October 26, 2023, at IU Health Arnett in Lafayette.  He was born November 7, 1939, in Frankfort to John and Thelma (Hinton) Sherer.  He Married Frances Harrison in 1958.  She preceded him in death in 1995.  He married L. Faye Harshman in 1996.  She preceded him in 2002.  He then married Jennifer Kirkpatrick on December 12, 2010, and she survives.

Larry was a 1957 graduate of Frankfort High School.  He then served in the United States Air Force for 20 years.  He then worked for Federal Mogul for 10 years until his retirement.  Larry was a member of the VFW Post 1110 where he served as Quarter Master for 10 years and served on military funerals.  He was also a member of the American Legion and 40 and 8. He served on the Zoning Appeals and City Planning Commission and Economic Development Boards.  He was a hardworking man and wouldn’t let things keep him from getting things done.  Even after becoming legally blind in 1989, he still found ways to continue working and being active.  He enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, gardening, and calling in to WILO Partyline to have discussions.  He was an avid Colts and Cubs fan.  But above all, he loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them.
