Wade Allen Thomas Sherby – Woonsocket

Wade Allen Thomas Sherby, 27, of Woonsocket, passed away, surrounded by his loving family, on May 21, 2019, at Landmark Medical Center. Born in Providence, he was the son of Douglas and Heather Sherby ... “You are so beautiful to mommy.”

Wade enjoyed fishing, shooting, four-wheeling, basketball, animals and all things outdoors. He was a wonderful son with an amazing heart. He always put others first and would help anyone in need no matter the situation. He gave in life as he did in death. Just as Wade would have wanted, he was able to save three lives though organ donation. The family would like to give special thanks to the many teams at Landmark Medical Center and New England Donor Services for the exceptional care and time that they dedicated to Wade. They would also like to thank the Blackstone Fire and Police Departments.

Besides his parents, Heather and Doug, Wade is survived by his sister, Starsha Sherby, and Robert Fox of Woonsocket; brother, Douglas Sherby Jr. of Texas; nephew, Jonah Fox; grandparents, Karen Thomas of Woonsocket, Phil and Diane Thomas of Harrisville, Roger and Patricia Sherby of Millbury, Mass.; loving son and girlfriend; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Stephan Grumbach.
