Noel Sherman Sronce...everyone called him Sherman. Paw-paw cut hair as a teen right across from Blackburn Elementary school (there was a little building that sit there).

When WWII draft started up Paw-paw went into service for the Navy. He was aboard the ship USS Trenton. He served in the crows nest. He told me that he didn't really see alot of combact but they bombed a lot of Islands near Alaska. He got to visit Italy. After the war, paw-paw stayed with the ship til after decomissioning.

Paw-paw also worked with his brothers Buck and Carroll. Buck and him did alot of carpentery work and traveled the country painting warehouses at one point in time. Carroll and him ran a body shop (now Bubba's rides in Lincolnton) and did mechanic work on cars. Later on Paw paw worked for Charles Burke who owned Burke Tours of Maiden. Paw-paw painted and worked on his buses.

When his parents got up in age Grandpa had an addition built onto his house. All my uncles and cousins all helped pitch in. Paw-paw and Maw-maws house was the coolest house. My cousin Jason lived with them growing up. After the death of Maw & Paw...Uncle Chuck moved in; to help keep up with things. Uncle Darrell also stayed there.

Sherman was a quiet man and didn't speak unless he had something that was worth saying. So when he did you better listen.

As children we used to ask Paw-paw for gum or candy. He would pull out a bag of chewing tobacco and ask if we wanted some. :) "Paw-paw that isn't candy".

Paw-paw knew how to do furniture work also. He made many a table and chairs and cabinets.

As paw-paw got up in age he was in the hospital more and more. (he had epizema) One time I came to visit and set long enough for them to discharge him. He was ready to go. I helped dress paw-paw. I felt uncomfortable about doing it, but I wouldn't have traded that moment for the world.

On the day paw-paw died. I went to visit him again in the Hospital. Grandma was there and Uncle Chuck and two of Grandpa's Nieces..(Regina & Lenora). Chuck and Grandmaw decided to go get some lunch. The nurse came in later and said that his Oxygen level was low. Not long after that he became irriposive. I started calling everyone.

Grandpaw was glue that tied his family together. He was strong and smart, kind and goodwilled.

Eternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who biddest the mighty ocean deep, Its own appointed limits keep; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea! ~Navy Hymn,vs 1
