Fred Allen Sherbacow, 87, of West Hartford, Connecticut and Delray Beach Florida, passed away peacefully on September 3, 2022 surrounded by his family. Fred was born November 18, 1934 to Abe and Beatrice Sherbacow, and raised in Stamford along with his two brothers Paul and Donald.
Fred was predeceased by his wife of 57 years Carol Ann Comen Sherbacow who had a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He is survived by her three children, Jill and Sam Alecci of Hawley, PA, Ken and Mame Sherbacow and Eric and Michele Sherbacow of Avon. Fred was blessed with six grandchildren; Brianne, Alex, Ben, Natalie, Annie, Jack and great grandson Caden
Fred was a proud graduate of UCONN class of 1956 as an Accounting Major and a member of the Phi Sigma Delta fraternity. He married the love of his life Carol in 1956 and started their amazing life together. Fred had an infectious smile that rivaled Carol and they both could lite up any room. After graduation he worked at Deloitte Haskins and Sells. He later relocated to West Hartford where he began a career in the food service industry and became a maverick in the field as Vice President at Interstate United and then Chief Executive at Bell Food Services (“the ring of quality”) which he sold in 1988. Fred was fortunate to retire at the age of 54 “snow birding” to Glen Eagles Country Club in Delray Beach Florida with mom. They continued their amazing trips around the world with their dear friends Ronnie and Natalie Schacht, Digger and Sandy Wallach, Eve and Ed Fishman. He continued to work on his golf game with his Glen Eagles crazy gang of 8 – Kippy, Hermie, Roy, Bobby, Alvin, Lenny, Sherman and of course Fred. He enjoyed hunting for balls as much as he did trying to score. Fred “did it his way” pushing the limit on any rule from an untucked shirt on the course, walking his 2 Bichons Nicki and Samantha through the fairways, or fishing for golf balls (white fish) at night in the supposedly gator free ponds. After the passing of mom, Fred continued to live in Glen Eagles full time with his companion Susan Engle. Fred was a huge UCONN Basketball and Red Sox fan which he never thought would win multiple championships in their respective sports.
While so very sad to leave us, Mom has been waiting and holding a table. We are all so happy that you are together once again.
