Sherrell Corron was the oldest son of Lewis Thomas Corron (1902-1982) and Velma Lucille Franks (1910-1983).

An old farmer hung up his denim coveralls to a fight with lung cancer on November 5, 2012 at 77 years. Sherrell Corron was born in Idabel, Choctaw, Oklahoma on July 9th, 1935 to Lewis Thomas Corron (1935-2012) and Velma Lucille Franks.

Sherrell attended Hamilton City schools. A proud Naval veteran, he fought in Korea. He attended Chico State. Sherrell worked for Holly Sugar for 36 years in Hamilton City as a mechanic and welder. He also ran a small dairy and raised cattle and goats.

Sherrell was a golden soul from a different age; he never visited empty-handed. Extra produce, olive oil, jags of wood…he would constantly share whatever he had. He never took what he didn't earn. Fiercely loyal, he always took care of someone. Find a pile of wood on your doorstep at Christmas? That would be from Sherrell.

He left behind his wife; his two sons, John Russell Corron and his wife Margaret "Maggie" and Joseph James Corron and his wife Laurinda; his daughter Melissa Lynn Corron Burgasin Garton and two sisters Daisy Charlene McAllister of Bakersfield and Billye Ruth Fox-Wieden of Hampton, Virginia. He had numerous grandhildren and great-grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins and life long friends.

He was precede in death by his parents; his children Jeffrey Lewis Corron (1958-2006), Thomas Franklin Corron (1959-1959), Michelle Suzanne Corron Barber (1967-2012) and Jerome Andrew Corron (1969-1969); his brothers Darrell Corron (1935-1987) and Richard Franklin Corron (1939-1990) and two sisters Fannie Mae Peacock 91927-2009) and Betty Lou Darilek (1931-1991).

Graveside services will be held at 10 am 11/10/12 at Orland Masonic Cemetery and a Memorial Luncheon from 12 pm to 2 pm at the Hamilton City Community Hall.

Sherrell was a hard working man devouted to his family and always willing to help others. He will be greatly missed.
