Richard Sheryer Obituary

Peacefully at home, with family by his side, Richard Allen Sheryer, aged 70, passed away in the early hours of November 20, 2021, after a prolonged illness. Born in Kitchener Waterloo, February 3, 1951, Richard was the son of the late William Henry and Evelyn Marie (Schmidt) Sheryer. Beloved husband of the late Beverly Elva Sheryer (Wallace); and loving father of Brent Alan Sheryer (Jennifer), Trevor James Sheryer (Robin), Deborah Anne Obendorf Cote (Roger), and Philip Albert Obendorf. Loving grandfather of Graedon and Clark McRorie, Christina, Zachary, Joshua, and Elora Cote, Jacob and Clara Sheryer, and Avery Sheryer. Richard is survived by his brother William Robert Sheryer (Cecelia). Richard loved his family life and valued time with family more than anything. He spent countless hours enjoying his children and grandchildren who adored him. He loved family dinners, walking grandchildren to school, attending plays, concerts, graduations, sporting events, mini-golf, and ice cream runs. He loved taking his family on vacations, often to Florida and Quebec, whenever he could. His grandchildren have great memories of days on the beach, fine dining, and jeep rides with Grandpa. Richard was a fiercely loyal individual and a dear friend to many. He had an incredible range of knowledge and always had an interesting anecdote to tell (often involving a stamp or some postal history). Richard loved philosophy and history and often spoke fondly of his early days as a teaching assistant for the Philosophy Department at Wilfrid Laurier University. Renowned for his philatelic expertise, Rick fell in love with stamps at an early age. Initially, he sold stamps at Kitchener stamp shows, working at Amberly Investments in the 1970s and at R. Maresch & Son in the early 1980s for over 30 years, building an amazing career around his passion for philately. He sat on the Greene Foundation expert committee. Richard was a lifetime member of CSDA and their secretary in 1987.
