Charles Matthew Sheerin

October 29, 1969July 4, 2020

Charles Matthew Sheerin was born to Charles Sheerin and Angela Colletta in Staten Island, NY on October 29, 1969. He and his family moved to Las Vegas, NV where Charles graduated from Clark High School in 1987. That same year, he met Bridget, whom he went to high school with and later married on December 8, 1990. The two settled in Las Vegas, NV where they moved into their first home on Sierra Largo Drive in Summerlin. Charles and Bridget were so in love, they couldn’t contain it, so they made another person with all that love. In 1995, Charles and Bridget welcomed their first child, Austin Charles on August 19, 1995 followed by Tyler Matthew a short fourteen months later, on October 9, 1996. While Charles and Bridget loved being surrounded by an abundance of family, they had a calling for a different climate. In the year 2000 the four journeyed from the desert to the mountains of Glenwood Springs, CO. Here Charles worked as the store manager of the Sherwin Williams in Aspen, CO. Two years after settling into their home on Grand Avenue, the family of four became five on June 3rd, 2002 when Cassandra Susan was born. The family remained in Glenwood for 2 years before they would relocate 18 miles west to the town of Silt, Colorado. Charles remained an employee at Sherwin Williams, however in 2002, he took on a new title. Being the friendly, outgoing character he was, he flourished as a Sales Representative for the duration of his career at Sherwin Williams. Charles had a special place in his heart for the many customers he served throughout his time in the Western Slope. Charles and Bridget raised their three children in Silt, where Austin and Tyler finished high school and Cassandra wrapped up seventh grade before they would move to Arizona. Due to a job promotion Charles received the family would begin the next chapter of their lives returning to the desert. Bridget and Charles settled in Surprise, AZ in 2015 where Charles continued in the paint industry as a Protective and Marine Sales Representative. Charles’s ambition, compassion, curiosity, determination, and problem solving skills all contributed to his success in a new area of sales. People like Charles are one in a million. He saw obstacles as opportunities to grow and learn. His positivity, optimism and hard work translated to his career, the gym, and around the house. Often referred to as “beef cake” by those closest to him, Charles found much happiness in the gym. That being said, you could often hear him saying, “God gave you one, take care of it until it’s done.” Certainly, he did just that. Not only was he consistent in maintaining his health, he never failed to show love to his family and friends. Charles was a devoted son, brother, husband, uncle, father, and friend. Family was his everything to him. His love as a son, brother, husband, uncle, father, and friend, was never a question. Known as the funcle, he valued even his extended family as his very own. Charles loved hard. His kind heart, genuine soul, and selfless attitude continuously brought those he knew closer to him. He strived to make those around him smile, and was always successful in doing so. Charles was an honorable man, who strived to be better in every aspect of his life on a daily basis, and constantly inspired those around him to do the same. He is known for lighting up every room, through his unique sense of humor and love of music. Music was often his language, it ran through his veins. Charles shared his passion with everyone he knew, wherever he was, music was playing. Charles’s life was certainly a soundtrack. His bittersweet symphony will continue to play through those he is survived by, his loving wife Bridget and three children, Austin, Tyler, and Cassandra, as well as his mother, Angela, and his brother, Shawn (Jennifer), and a number of other beloved family members. Heaven gained an angel as Charles passed, he will be dearly missed. May he rest in paradise. Services for Charles will be held at Surprise Funeral Care on October 24, 2020 at 1 PM.

Your mother Angela has been my friend since Bella was born....18 years ago. Her name surely reflects her loving personality & compassion. Angela took care of my mom when she was moved to an assistant living home & later to a nursing home. We called Angela our angel & our family loves her for her caring & kindness. I met you Charlie on a few occasions & I remember most your love for your mother. You were a wonderful son! Rest In Peace. Carol & Family ❤️❤️❤️

Oh dear Charlie.... what can you say about a man who danced to the beat of his own drum?? And dance he did!! From the moment I met Charlie he made it a point to stop whatever he was doing to have a one on one conversation with me, to learn about me, asking how things have been. Always met with a hug, a smile and some form of what he considered a “funny” joke, lol.

Bridgett often mentions about the time Charlie came to visit us at the hospital after we had Islay and how she told him not to go bugging us and give us time but that quiet, personal memory crosses my mind often and showed me a different side to Charlie. He became Uncle Charlie to Islay that day and I felt so blessed that he went out of his way to be one of the firsts to meet our little girl. Such a big heart that one. He was the life of the party and I’m forever grateful we got to share a small part of life together, each one full of laughs.

Uncle Charlie, you’ll forever be missed. Cheers... ♥️

I want to start by saying Im sorry to the Sheerin family for waiting so long before I wrote this.
This is definitely the hardest thing I ever had to write. I had tremendous amount of love for Charlie (Papa Smurf), and he was my very closest and best friend. Even though we went to High school together our paths never crossed. The first time I met Charlie was on the softball field. In fact, if not for Rick Rozier, I probably would have never met Charlie. At first we hung out only a little bit, when he and Bridget had gatherings at the house or I did plumbing work for them. Before we knew it we started to grow closer, we went to concerts, played fantasy football and of course softball. Eventually, they moved to Colorado and I thought "there goes that friendship." We were not going to let it end like that! I started traveling to Colorado always around Thanksgiving. I tried in the summer too, so we could golf, whitewater raft, go camping and ride bikes. Through all of this we truly became BROTHERS, or as we would say "Brothers from another mother." Then they moved to Arizona and I thought to myself how much time we would be able to spend together now that they were closer. Last Thanksgiving would be our last time together. Never would I have imagined this would be our last visit together. It's funny there would be times when we wouldn't speak for months and then out of the blue one of us, sometimes me sometimes him, would send random texts. In these moments it was as if we had never missed a single day. We had this special bond I never had with anyone. I love this family so much Charlie, Bridget, Austin, Tyler and Cassandera. I truly felt like I was the bad Uncle they couldn't live without. I will miss Charlie so much. Rest In Peace my Brother. Thank you for texting me and letting me know you got home safe.

“ How’s work been D”. The first words from Charlie whenever I saw him, always followed up by a warm smile and handshake. There was never a day Charlie didn’t make an effort to hear about my day, while making me laugh in the process. Charlie showed me so much love, he treated me with so much respect and always made it known that he cared. A true father to his children and loving husband to his wife. I saw how hard he worked for his family, and how he lit up every room he walked into. While Charlie and I routinely talked about his Saints or our music taste, what meant so much more to me was that he asked me about what my passions were, and told me he supported me. Charlie truly made you feel he would do anything for you, even if you’d just met. One particular memory I have with Charlie was a night I drove him home from a night at Top-Golf. During the ride I found my eyes tearing up from crying of laughter. He knew so many jokes and proceeded to tell me them all. I enjoyed every second. Charlie thank you for treating me like a son, and shining your amazing light on this world. I miss you C.

With Love,

I just learned today of Charlie's tragic passing. I was his customer at Sherwin Williams in Aspen and Glenwood for over 15 years. Actually, we were more friends than business associates. He was a great guy and we constantly teased each other as guys often do. But it was always good natured.I was sad when he left for Arizona a few years ago but also happy for him because the move represented s promotion. I really missed him! My buddy Charlie. Over the years ,I would ask the staff at the store, "Hey, anyone know how Charlie's doing?" I wasn't prepared for the answer I received today. I still will miss you Charlie from now into forever. I will remember you and your family in my prayers tonight. I will ask God to hold you and them in the palm of his hands. May you rest in Peace.

“What a guy!” That’s what my mom (Grandma Susan) said about Charlie.
Charlie was our private D.J. and knew what each person liked to hear from old to young. We took many family vacations together, and he would bring excitement to each one. We are so happy to have such great memories. We will miss you and the happiness you brought to all. We love you Charlie.
