1959 – 2013

SABATTUS — Jay S. Sherwood, 54, of Sabattus, died unexpectedly at home on Saturday, Oct. 5. He was the longtime partner of the love of his life, the late Julia C. Rines, who died on Feb. 3, 2007.

Jay was born in Brunswick on Sept. 30, 1959, a son of the late Clint and Idolyn “Jo” (Gunther) Sherwood. He spent many years doing roofing and siding for local contractors.

He enjoyed playing cribbage, NASCAR racing — both cars and trucks — and loved the Patriots and the Red Sox. He always looked forward to Julia’s Halloween parties and was a horse racing enthusiast. Jay also enjoyed camping, fishing, his vegetable gardens, his dog, Bobbie Jo, and especially his grandkids, as they lit up his life.

He is survived by his two daughters, Erica Fallon and her husband, Sean, of Pittston and Katie Rines and her fiance, Isaac Ouellette, of Sabattus. He also leaves his four grandchildren, Harper, August, Jack and Ragan; his four siblings, Patty Norris of Illinois, Herbie and Jerry Sherwood, both of Texas, and Clinton “Vaughn” Sherwood of Poland; as well as several nieces and nephews.

He was also the grandfather of the late Liam Fallon, who died on Jan. 9, 2009; and the grandson of Geraldine Gunther, who died in 2005.
