Sherman Paul Newton, 73, of Colchester, passed away on Monday, October 4, 2021 at Middlesex Hospital. Born March 25, 1948 in Waterville, Maine; he was a son of the late Sherman C. Newton and Florence (Grivois) Newton. Sherman was a resident at the Caring Community Group Home in Colchester for over 30 years. He was a sweet and gentle soul who was always very affectionate. Anyone who knew Sherman would tell you what amazing heartfelt hugs he would give. He always had a twinkle in his eye and a smile that could light up a room. He was also known for being a bit of a prankster, his favorite prank to pull on people would be to offer them something in his hand, and the moment they said thank you he would pull the item back and laugh deeply.  He is survived by his extended family at the Caring Community Group Home in Colchester; his sisters Jeannette Bunnell, Doris Mathieu, and Phyllis Sehl, his brother William Bouford; and numerous other extended family and friends. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 from 10 AM to 12 PM at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Road, Colchester. Burial will be private.
