Michael M. Sherman, 64, passed away in Lexington on Saturday, March 5, 2022. Mike was born in Brooklyn, New York to the late Arthur George and Edna May (Rheel) Sherman on July 26, 1957.


 

Mike began his education at Columbia University and eventually earned his degree in I.T. He was an I.T. consultant working in various capacities in New York, Ohio, and eventually Kentucky. Mike treasured his wife, son, his extended family, his faith and the outdoors. He inspired his family with his eclectic stores and gifts and also widened their horizons and opened their minds to learn.


 

Mike is survived by his loving wife, Melissa; son, Michael “MG” Sherman; siblings, Mary (Joseph) Fontana, Joan Raftery, and Arthur (Alice) Sherman, as well as several nieces and nephews. Mike’s sister, Cecelia Sherman and an infant brother, preceded him in death.
