Roger Edsel Sheren, age 77, passed away on Saturday, January 2nd, 2021 in Chelsea, Michigan. Roger was born in August 1943 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Keith and Josephine Sheren and was blessed to have three older sisters. He graduated from Fordson High School in Dearborn and Detroit’s Wayne State University. He was a lifelong fan of the University of Michigan football and their marching band.
Roger married his soulmate, Kathy Herron, in 1994. He is also survived by his sons, Zachary (Keri) and Nicholas (Ashley), his grandchildren, Seth, Davis, Elena, and Emery, and Zach and Nick’s mother Patricia McIsaac.
Roger led a full and busy life surrounded by those he loved and who loved him. He worked as an educator, an accountant, and a small business owner. His true life’s labor, though, was that of a builder and a restorer. Roger recrafted houses in Pennsylvania, Florida, and Michigan leaving each as a unique work of art, beauty, and hard work. Although his timeliness at restoring his vintage Mustang might have been slightly less accomplished, as it wasn’t quite ready for either of his adult sons, or grandsons, to drive to their high school proms, he was able to drive it this past summer. Above all else, Roger was a very kind, giving person and he was never too busy to help his friends and family with any task, large or small.
Roger never liked being the center of attention and per his wish, there will be no service.
