Mr. Charles Anthony “TinMan” Sherman, Sr., 50, of Greenville, departed this life on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. He was born on October 2, 1968, in Englewood, New Jersey, a son of Clemon Motley and the late Frances Sherman Brown.

Charles was a 1986 graduate of Woodmont High School, where he was an outstanding student and athlete. Shortly after completing high school, Charles chose to serve his country by enlisting in the United States Army, where he served faithfully for three years. Upon returning home, Charles started his career in logistics and management. He also pursued his passion in photography through his own company, Picture This Onsite Photography.

He was a member of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, where he enjoyed singing in the Inspiration Choir. He later joined Mount Zion Baptist Church in Belton, South Carolina. He was an active member of the Lowndes Hill Masonic Lodge #319 and Sin City Motorcycle Club in Greenville.

One of his missions in life was to share the love he had for life with others. He was always there with words of wisdom and sound advice, and we can never forget that smile, which he often flashed to brighten our day!

Our sincere sympathies goes to you and yours in this most difficult time . Please find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials " Our loving God gave us the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). What a joy it will be welcoming back to life our loved ones? You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

I can’t think of someone who has treated me better or respected me more as a DJ than TinMan.

I’ve performed in many countries & Tony is still at the top. #ManOfHisWord

Prayers & positive vibrations to all of Tony’s family & friends.
