Sherell was born November 30, 1940 to Velma Mae (nee’ Kirkman) and Rex Martell Boren in Pocatello, ID. He was the oldest of 11 children. During his adult years, he worked for various companies as a salesperson in the grocery and pharmaceutical industries. His interests included: automobiles and watching automobile racing, home improvement projects, and vacations to tropical destinations. He also enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys play (when they were winning). He also enjoyed desserts of all kinds.
Sherell had a witty sense of humor, a warm personality and never met a stranger. He could hold a conversation with anyone and make them feel important. He was always energetic and the type of person who wanted to be occupied. This often led to him taking on projects around the house and working on cars. He would always find “creative” ways to “make things work”. In his retirement years, he enjoyed a quiet existence at home and often enjoyed visiting with those around him.
