The passing of Sherman Francis Dewar of St. George NB occurred at Bobby's Hospice, Saint John NB on December 3, 2022. Born in St. George NB on January 4, 1933, he was a son of the late G. Everett and Marion (Kaglar) Dewar. A loving father, partner, grandfather and brother, Sherman is survived by his devoted daughter: Ann Dewar (Ross Lee) of Utopia NB; his special partner: Inez Taylor and her family, Sherman's chosen family: Lisa, Jim and Zack Needle, Melissa and Liam Saunders; his other daughter: Kathy (Chris) Koteff; his grandchildren: Melanie (Phil) Backman, Naida (Dave) Keetch and Alec Koteff; several great-grandchildren; siblings: Ralph (Lynn) Dewar, Ronald Dewar and Lawrence Dewar; his special caregivers: Joan, Ellen, Deenie, Maggie and April. He really appreciated his two Lauries, his handy dandy dudes: Clifford and Brett. As well as several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents, Sherman was predeceased by his wife, Lillian "Vera" Dewar.
Prior to retirement, Sherman worked for Lake Utopia Pulp and Paper as a machine operator and prior to working at the mill he worked the family business, Dewar Dairies and was known as the local milk man. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved walking, hunting and fishing, especially salt water hand lining. He loved sports and could be found cheering on both the Habs and the Bluejays. Sherman was active in his community and was a past member of the St. Stephen Golf Club and an honorary life member of the St. George Curling Club. He was also a fabulous dancer who started dancing at the old dance halls and continued dancing throughout his life. He enjoyed all forms of local music. Known to give flowers to all the special women in his life for many occasions. During the last five years, Sherman had a rough battle but never lost his sense of humor or wit. He loved Charlotte County, a sportsman paradise, close to the salt water, the rivers, the lakes and our beautiful forests (until recently).
