Obituary for Alan Eugene Sherrill

Alan Eugene Sherrill, 60, died peacefully November 10, 2018 at Pioneer Manor in Hugoton, Ks. He was born October 23, 1958 in Dumas, Tx to Douglas “Dude” Sherrill and Betty (Stevens) Sherrill.
Alan was raised in the Oklahoma panhandle and graduated from Guymon High School. On June 29th 1979 he married Tammie Dawn (Cooper) and they settled in Tyrone, OK where they raised their two sons, Ryan Alan Sherrill and Tyler Randle Sherrill. Alan worked as a mechanic in both the automotive and gas and oil industries. He served many years on the Tyrone Volunteer Fire Department and served as Fire Chief for a time during that tenure. Alan was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the age of 32 and suffered from this debilitating disease until the time of his death. Although this disease eventually left him unable to perform many physical tasks, Alan’s amicable personality and passion for all that he held dear always remained evident to all who knew him. Alan was a devoted husband and father and enjoyed taking Tammie, Ryan and Tyler on hunting and fishing expeditions. He was also a doting grandpa who loved just being in the presence of his grandsons Camden and Carter Sherrill. He was an avid Nascar fan, cycling enthusiast, and an amateur weather watcher. Alan was very mechanically inclined and could fix most anything that needed fixing. He was a beloved son, brother and friend and will be missed by many.
Alan is survived by his wife Tammie of Tyrone; son Ryan and wife Lindsay of Fort Collins, CO and son Tyler of Fort Collins, CO; grandsons (sons of Ryan and Lindsay) Camden and Carter; mother Betty Sherrill of Guymon, OK; two sisters Karri Long and husband Steve of Guymon, OK and Jana Larson and husband Brett of Fate, TX; brother Steve Sherrill of Guymon, OK ; parents-in-law Jack and Glennetta Cooper of Tyrone, OK; two sisters-in-law Beth Shilling and husband Jerry of Kingfisher, OK and Jackie Stevens and husband Lloyd of Tyrone, OK; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father Dude Sherrill.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, November 13, at 1:00 p.m. at Tyrone Church of Christ.
