Obituary for Sherry Octford Balliew

Sherry Octford Balliew, 75, of Sharpsburg passed away on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. He was born on April 29, 1943 in Rome, Georgia to the late TJ and Flora Balliew. Sherry served in the US Navy during the Cuban Missile Crisis before becoming a member of the Operating Engineers Local 926.

Sherry was a long-time resident of Hapeville, GA and a staple in the community. He spent his years in Hapeville, coaching little league sports and volunteering for any opportunity to support the town, even being the Hapeville Hornet – the local high school mascot. He was a great role model and second father to many, making Hapeville an amazing place to grow up for so many kids. Sherry loved to fish, watch his westerns, fix anything that was within his reach, and walk his little dog Sparky. He loved his wife, kids, and grandkids more than he could ever express, as they were the loves of his life.

Sherry was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Thomas, Garner, and Pug; sister, Maxie. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Barbara A. Balliew; son, Chris (Jennifer) Balliew; grandchildren, Cheyenne, Carson, and Annabelle; sister, Marcy; his little dog, Sparky; longtime best friend, Ed Worley, as well as many nieces, nephews, and other friends that were more like family.

We are all going to miss that S.O.B. forever – our Sweet Ol’ Boy.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, February 1, 2019 at 2:00 PM at the Chapel of Mowell Funeral Home, Peachtree City. The family will receive visitors at 12:00 PM prior to the service. Burial will follow at Westminster Memorial Gardens.
