Greenwich, New York - 12 Jan 2018


The family of Mr. John Edward Sherin has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in his funeral services. Mr. Sherin, 91, passed away Thursday, January 4, 2018 at Saratoga Hospital.

John was born in Cambridge, NY and spent his whole life in Greenwich. He attended Greenwich Central School, and after graduation, was inducted into the U.S. Army Air Corps. He qualified for combat crew service and, and after ball turret armor and radio operator school, was assigned to a B-29 in the Pacific. At the end of the war, he volunteered for service in the European sector. In Europe, John was assigned to a C-47 crew that flew military personnel throughout Europe and was Honorable discharged in 1946 at the rank of PFC.
