Thomas Gove Sherman, 60, died at home in Somers, Connecticut on August 17, 2019. Tom was the beloved son of James and Lucile Sherman. He was born on September 25, 1958 in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Enfield and Somers. Tom had a big heart and was generous with time and care for friends and family. He worked in security services for many years. He loved animals and treasured his pets. Tom enjoyed many outdoor adventures including an expedition to Philmont, New Mexico. He was a graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting and contributed his voice and creativity to many broadcasting and video projects, including voiceovers and reading books on the radio for the blind. Tom had a deep and abiding faith that he called upon as he bravely faced his illness and diagnosis with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Tom’s family thanks the staff of the Hospital for Special Care and Masonicare Hospice, as well as his many friends, for their compassionate care and support of Tom during his final days. Tom is survived by his parents, of Longmeadow, MA; his brothers John (Peggy) of Slingerlands, NY and Robert of Hallowell, ME; his nephews Nate of Los Angeles, CA and Will of Brooklyn, NY; and his close friend Mariam Donerian of Somersville.
