John B. “Jackie” Sherrill, 74, of Soddy Daisy died Monday, August 1, at his home from complications of Parkinson’s and lymphoma.

He was born August 9, 1947 in Cleveland, Tennessee to the late Sherman Sherrill and Pearl Hazel Eller Sherrill.

He was a 1966 graduate of Soddy High School. He loved hot rods and enjoyed working on them. He loved life and his family. He never met a stranger; he was the life of the party.

He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Myra Sherrill, who loved him very much, his loving children, Eric Sherrill and Ellen Farrell, grandchildren, Gage, Wesley, Justin, Nathan and Noah all of whom he adored.

There will be a celebration of life party at a later date.

We love you. See you soon.
