MINERAL POINT – Sherman Lee Sporle, age 83, of Barneveld, passed away on Sunday, March 28, 2021, at home.

He was born on Nov. 17, 1937, in Rewey, the son of Joseph and Alma (Kuebel) Sporle. Sherman graduated from Mineral Point High School in 1956. He served in the U.S. Army from Aug. 5, 1963 to Aug. 12, 1965. Sherman married Mary (Burns) Sporle in Mineral Point. He retired from General Motors as a welder

Sherman, otherwise known as the “Shermanator” was truly one of a kind. He had a heart of gold, was one heck of a storyteller, and always had a smile on his face. Sherman enjoyed spending time with his granddaughters and his great-granddaughters. He loved his dogs, Ollie and Buffie, and to “crack a cold one.” One of Sherman’s famous lines he told his girls was to “be safe and careful.” He was definitely a ray of sunshine and had a heart-warming effect on all those he loved.

Sherman is survived by his son, Randy Sporle; granddaughters, McKenzie (Garrett) and Tia; great-granddaughters, Paisley and Charlie; two special daughters-in-law, Lori Nechkash and Amy Anderson; as well as two stepsons, Mike Anderson and Dennis Anderson.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Mary Lou Sporle; stepchildren, Jane Anderson and Doug Anderson; and brothers and sisters.

A private graveside service will be held.

Memorials may be given to the family in c/o Gunderson Camacho Mount Horeb Funeral and Cremation Care, 500 N. Eighth St., Mt. Horeb, WI 53572.
