Homer resident and lifelong Alaskan Warren H. Sherwood died Tuesday, March 27, 2001, at South Peninsula Hospital from complications of emphysema. He was 76.
At his request no services are planned. His ashes will be scattered in Halibut Cove this summer.
Mr. Sherwood was born May 4, 1924, in Portola, Calif., to Jay and Agnes Sherwood. He moved with his family to Anchorage in May 1925 and graduated from Anchorage High School in 1941.
After serving with the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific during World War II, Mr. Sherwood returned to Alaska and worked as a surveyor on construction projects throughout Alaska until his retirement.
Mr. Sherwood lived in Halibut Cove for over 30 years before moving to Homer in 1999. He enjoyed reading, fishing and boating in Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay.
"Warren was an old-time Alaskan who loved this state and loved his independent lifestyle," his family said.
Mr. Sherwood is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Pat Sherwood, of Woodinville, Wash.; sister-in-law, Jeanie Sherwood, of Davis, Calif.; nephews Bob, David and Ken Sherwood, John and Stan Mazur and Paul Holman; and nieces Lee Carol Patterson, Elizabeth Anderson and Mary Mazur.
Arrangements were made by Homer Funeral Home.
