The Best Southwest Partnership family extends our sincere condolences to our State Representative Carl Sherman on the loss of his father, Samuel Lee Sherman (S.L.).
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Samuel Lee Sherman (S.L.) was born the sixth child of eleven children to the parentage of John D. Sherman and Fannie (Holly) Sherman in McNeil, Arkansas.
Samuel obeyed Christ at an early age and was a member of the New Zion Hill Baptist Church in Stephens, Arkansas. When he moved to San Antonio, Texas, he became a member of Rising Star Baptist Church. Later in life he became a member of the Mt. View Church of Christ.
Samuel received his formal education from the McNeil Independent School District. After graduation he moved to Sand Springs, Oklahoma to attend trade school for Diesel Mechanics. He then moved to San Antonio, Texas where he owned and operated S & L Automotive Shop. He was blessed to work for himself until his retirement.
It was there he met and married Hattie Andrews. Six children blessed this union, Lynn and Earl Hutchinson, Richard, Samuel, Diannah, and Carl Sherman.
He was preceded in death by his parents John D. and Fannie Sherman; brothers, Herman Lee, Willie B, Marcell, and Ozell; three sisters, Bernice, Sarah Nell, and Salitha; and two sons Richard Lee and Earl James.
He leaves to cherish his loving memory two sisters, Ollie V. and Dorothea Faye and one brother Ovell (Ozella). One daughter Diannah (John); three sons, Lynn Wayne, Samuel, Carl (Michelle) and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
