Scott, your tribute was beautiful. Kind, caring and considerate exactly describes my memories of Charles. He had a winning personality, and I always enjoyed my conversations with he and Joe.

He was always glad to see visitors, and you knew his heart was genuine.

I will greatly miss my neighbor and friend.

I will keep the Sherrard family and Joe in my thoughts and prayers.

We have many happy memories of holidays and most weekends spent with Charles “Pops” and his family. He treated us as family. Joe spent many weekends fishing and discussing anything and everything. We shared many laughs with him. We will miss him but think of him and Kay together again.

There are several memories that stand out but the theme for me is how kind Charles Sherrard was, both to me, my brother and sister, and to my parents. Charles helped his little brother, my dad many times in business. His house in OKC was one of the most welcoming homes anyone could ever have the good fortune of entering. I spent many a day at his house watching the Dallas Cowboys football games, swimming in the pool and going to the lake and riding on his Big Houseboat. Going to the golf course with he and dad and riding in his fancy cars. Listening to him talking business as his family was an extension of my own. I was privileged to receive many life long lessons from this man. Charles had such a big heart and always wanted to help you if he could. He was always a good friend, confidant and adviser for me. These last four years were such a blessing. I would talk to him every week about everything, from business to raising children to God, we were face to face and I truly loved it. Thank you God for giving us Charles, and thank you Lord, for the investments that he made in my life. Charles (Uncle Bubby) they are paying off! Scott Sherrard.
