Please share a memory of Kit to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Kit T Sherman, age 72, passed away Wednesday March 23, 2022 in his home in Hollister, CA. Kit was born in 1949, in Ely, Nevada. He moved to Hollister in 1959, where he attended San Benito - Hollister High School. Kit joined the California Department of Forestry – Fire Protection (CDF) in 1970, at the Beaver Dam station. He worked for CDF for 33 years, where he had a profound impact on many, that we consider an extended family. In his free time Kit loved to cook, fish and hunt, eating spicy foods, tinkering in the garage, loving animals (cats & dogs), but mostly he loved being with his kids. Kit is survived by his son Casey Sherman, of Maple Valley, WA & daughter Katie Grimmett of Hollister, CA, sister Kris Vessey, brother Phil Heckethorn, cousins Jill, Jan, & Steve Brandt. He is preceded in death by his mother & father Corrinne & Walt Framke. Kit did not want a funeral or memorial service, but the family is considering options for something small for immediate friends and family.
