He moved to Bellefontaine as a child and was raised Catholic. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and later became a very skilled craftsman and did woodworking for Stinson’s for 20-plus years.

Richard is survived by his sons, Tim (Sharon) Sherer and Tony Sherer, both of Riverside, Calif.; a daughter, Angela Beu of Colorado; three grandchildren: Aaron and Matthew Sherer and Alyson Beu; a brother, Bob (Anita) Sherer of San Diego, Calif.; and a sister, Mary (Jeff) Olthoff of Wildomar, Calif.

There are no services at this time as it was Richard’s wish to be cremated. Burial will be at a later date in Fairview Cemetery, West Liberty.
