Posted on Sep 9th, 2017
DURHAM: John Boyce Sherrill, 91, died peacefully on September 2, 2017, at Hock Family Pavilion in Durham, NC after several years of declining health. 

Born November 25, 1925, in Stony Point, NC to Ernest Escar Sherrill and Lela Mae Grant Sherrill, John enlisted in the US Marine Corps at the age of 17 after graduating from high school. Following training in Parris Island, SC, he was stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii until the war ended in 1945. In 1955, he married Ina Lawson and the two of them moved to Gastonia where they raised their sons, Chip and David. During his time in Gastonia, John worked in the textile industry as a computer programmer for Threads, Inc. and Belmont Hosiery (later Belmont Heritage). After retiring from textiles, John started a new career working in retail at Belk in Eastridge Mall. In his free time, he enjoyed running, eating at the fish camp, hiking Crowder's Mountain with his sons, and keeping his yard looking good.

SAFETY AT HOME
Crime Prevention Tips
 
Thieves usually want to get in and out of a house quickly. Thus, they generally look for small, easy to carry items such as smart phones, jewelry, or prescription drugs (particularly pain killers). Since most of us keep our jewelry and prescriptions in the master bedroom and bath, these are often the first rooms a thief will enter. Consider moving these items to a secure location in another room.
 
Most robbers gain access to homes through sliding glass doors. Please purchase a kit from the hardware store which allows you to secure your sliding glass doors(s). You will still be able to open the door from the inside. Putting a stick in the track does little because robbers gain access by lifting the standard sliding glass door up and out of its track.
 
If you have expensive electronics, make a copy of the receipt, copy down the model and serial numbers, and take a picture of the item(s). This helps the police find and identify any stolen items.
 
If you purchase or own expensive jewelry which is not kept in a safe, take pictures of the items. Jewelry, as well as electronics, is usually quickly taken to a pawn shop by thieves, and pictures help the police. As with electronics, keep a copy of any receipts.
 
Consider adding additional motion detector lights to the outside of your house. If you do not want to go to the expense of hiring an electrician to wire in a motion detector light, consider a solar motion detector flood light. These lights do not have to be wired in and can be easily installed by a handyman (or a handy homeowner!). Solar lights are not a perfect solution but are better than no lights at all.
 
IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE AWAY FOR A WEEKEND OR VACATION, PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE A NEIGHBOR PICK UP YOUR MAIL, NEWSPAPERS, AND PACKAGES DAILY. ABOVE ALL, KEEP YOUR HOME AND YOUR CAR LOCKED!
