Sherman was born on September 1, 1919, eldest son of 15 children to Pearlie (Carter) and Sherman Steward. Sr. The family lived in a rural area, north of Waco near the Erath Community in the Brazos River bottom. Early years were spent plowing, chopping cotton, hunting and fishing. Later in life, Sherman shouldered the responsibility of helping raise his brothers and sisters and keeping his family together, safe and happy.

A large part of his life, beginning in 1947, was spent working for the Walter Lacy, Jr. family. For over 50 years, Sherman became an instrumental part of the family doing his part to raise the five Lacy children. While doing his job, he was always ready and eager to help. Sherman
