Sherman R. Gregory 92, a longtime resident of Keene, NH, passed away on Friday evening, January 31, 2020, at the Applewood Care and Rehabilitation Center in Winchester, NH, with his family by his side.

His parents, Charles E. and Agnes (Anderson) Gregory welcomed their son into the world on May 24, 1927 in Peterborough, NH. Sherman grew up in Peterborough, moving to Keene in 1938.

Sherman served his country in the United States Air Force in the 764th AC&W Squadron from December, 1951, until his honorable discharge on October 16, 1953.

Sherman worked as a packer and spinner with the former Hedstrom Union in Keene for twenty years. In his earlier years, he enjoyed bowling. He enjoyed watching Keene area softball and baseball games and was an avid Red Sox fan. No matter where he went, his attire always included something "Red Sox" and many of his fondest memories were trips to Fenway Park.

He was loved by many and will be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, who all held a special place in his heart. Sherman was predeceased by his brothers, Norman Gregory, Earl Gregory, Charles Gregory, Jr.; and his sisters, Shirley Marcotte, Esther Webster, June Lagasse, Joyce Raymond and Dorothy Lafleur.

Services and burial with military honors in the Monadnock View Cemetery, Keene, will be private.

We were very sorry to hear of Sherm's passing and send our condolences to the family. We knew Sherm through women's softball and he was a wonderful friend. We traveled with him to many women's national softball tournaments and have many memories of those travels. He loved to help out at the fields, whether it be with the players, coaches, putting trophies together or just sitting with friends and families sharing stories about the games. Later on when he could not drive we would pick him up and take him to the fields - something he enjoyed immensely. You have been in our thoughts and prayers lately Sherm and now you are at peace and helping the players that have moved on before you. Rest in Peace and God Bless our friend.
