William M. Sheredy “Bill” from Lakeville, MA peacefully passed away June 23, 2020 at home with his loving wife by his side who cared for him throughout his illness over the last few years.  Bill was born on January 19, 1944 in Dubuque, IA and raised in Galena, IL until he left for the United States Navy of which he proudly served aboard the USS. North Hampton.  He was the son of John Sheredy and Vera Stowe.  He is survived by his spouse Gloria, his sons William M. Sheredy, Chad Sheredy, BillyJoe Sheredy, and daughter Melissa Sheredy-Theriault.  He is also survived by his five beautiful grandchildren, Will, Michael, Brooke, Hope, and Camden.  Along with his brother Gary Switzer, sister Judy Switzer, and his beloved Aunt Sheila Zink, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by his Grandparents of whom he was very close to, his mother Vera, Father, John, and his brothers he thought the world of, Ronald Switzer, Terry Switzer, and Max Parker. 

Bill was a bright blue-eyed boy from a small midwestern town where he grew up working the farm and as the oldest, helping to care for his siblings.  He learned at an early age the value of hard work, which never left him.  He could outwork most his age and younger as his resilience and strength was unmatched. He worked at the quarry, and as a Welder in the Navy as well as the Railroad in Illinois for twenty years and the foundry to his retirement.  Although Bill very much enjoyed his life in New England, he had a deep-rooted love of the Midwest of which he enjoyed hobbies such as coon hunting and morel hunting.  He could also be quite content and proud of his bountiful garden; sharing his vegetables with all.  He loved mowing his lawn and enjoying a cold Miller in one hand.  He was a proud member of the American Legion over his lifetime.  Bill was a simple man; he needed or wanted very little but loved immensely-a heart of gold and a friend to all.  Bill had many animals over the years, but he was deeply attached to his beloved Bulldogs, Winston and Gunnar (who passed away weeks before him).

His life will forever be cherished in the lives of his wife, children, and grandchildren.  We will miss our french fry maker at all our memorable pool parties.  Although our family tree has lost a limb, and will never be the same, you have left us with the strength to withstand life’s storms and to capture moments of beauty on this earth.

My condolences to the family, as I have known them my entire life. Bill was a good dad, a wonderful neighbor, and great guy. I would often see him drive down the street, wave, and smile on Crooked Lane. I would often see him, and stop by the house to say Hello with my kids, and nieces, or walking the dog. He was a wonderful husband to Gloria, and it is comforting to know that they had each other to spend so many happy years together.
It is my hope that you will hold onto all the happy moments, all the life events that will now be fond memories you will treasure forever.

May he Rest In Peace. Gone too soon, but never forgotten.
